Cardiofy's proprietary formulation contains 406 phytonutrients that exert 611 synergistic activities on your body. Many of these phytonutrients are widely recognized for their contribution to Cardiovascular Health.

For example:

  • Allicin - Exerts cardioprotective activities on the body (Liu, Cao, Tang, “Allicin Protects Against Cardiac Hypertrophy and Fibrosis via Attenuating Reactive Oxygen Species- Dependent Signaling Pathways”, Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry, Volume 21, Issue 12, Pages 1238-1250, 2010; Sun and Ku, “Allicin in Garlic Protects Against Coronary Endothelial Dysfunction and Right Heart Hypertrophy in Pulmonary Hypertensive Rats”, doi: 10.1152/ajpheart.00384,AJP- Heart vol. 291 no. 5H2431- H2438, Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, University of Alabama, Birmingham, 2006; Ali, Al-Qattan, Al-Enezi, “Effect of Allicin from Garlic Powder on Serum Lipids and Blood Pressure in Rats Fed with a High Cholesterol Diet”, Prostaglandins, Leukotrienes and Essential Fatty Acids Volume 62, Issue 4, Pages 253-259, 2000).

  • Curcumin - Protects heart muscles from damage (Li, Liu, de Couto, et al. “Curcumin Prevents and Reverses Murine Cardiac Hypertrophy”, J Clin Invest,118(3): 879–893. doi: 10.1172/JCI32865, 2008; Sumbilla, Lewis, Hammerschmidt and Inesi, “The Slippage of the Ca2+ Pump and Its Control by Anions and Curcumin in Skeletal and Cardiac Sarcoplasmic Reticulum”, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland, 2002; Becatti, Pensalfini, Cecchi, et al. “Curcumin Protects Cardiac Cells against Ischemia- Reperfusion Injury: Effects on Oxidative Stress, NF-κB, and JNK Pathways”, Department of Biochemical Sciences University of Florence, Italy, 2008).

  • Gallic-Acid - Protects the myocardium from damage (Priscilla and Mainzen, “Cardioprotective Effect of Gallic Acid on Cardiac Troponin-T, Cardiac Marker Enzymes, Lipid Peroxidation Products and Antioxidants in Experimentally Induced Myocardial Infarction in Wistar Rats”, Annamalai University, Tamil Nadu, India 2009; Priscilla and Mainzen, “Gallic Acid Prevents Lysosomal Damage in Isoproterenol Induced Cardiotoxicity in Wistar Rats”, Annamalai University, Tamil Nadu, India 2009; Qi SP and Hu PR, “Effect of the Esters of Gallic Acid on Model and Human Blood Platelet Membranes Studied by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy”, Sci China B. 36(6):702-9, Central Laboratory, Beijing College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, 1993).

Take one capsule after breakfast and one capsule after dinner.

Each box contains 60 capsules (500 mg) - 1 month's supply.

Lifestyle Recommendations

You can optimize your long-term cardiovascular health by:

1) Taking Cardiofy - Cardiofy releases hundreds of phytonutrients that act at the molecular level to support normal cardiovascular health.

2) Avoiding Saturated Fat - Saturated fat is the main dietary cause of high blood cholesterol.  Foods to avoid include beef, veal, lamb, pork, lard, poultry fat, butter, cream, milk, cheeses, whole dairy products, two percent milk, coconut, coconut oil, palm oil, tropical oils, and cocoa butter.

3) Avoiding Hydrogenated Fat - Hydrogenated fats raise blood cholesterol.  Foods to avoid include margarine and shortening.

4) Avoiding Trans-Fatty Acids - Trans-fatty Acids raise blood cholesterol.  Foods to avoid include french fries, doughnuts, cookies, crackers, muffins, pies, and cakes.

5) Consuming Unsaturated Fats - Getting between 25% to 35% of your calories from unsaturated fats will help lower your blood cholesterol level.  Foods to consume include salmon, trout, herring, avocados, olives, walnuts, and liquid vegetable oils (soybean, corn, safflower, canola, and sunflower).

6) Reducing Sugar Intake - Cut back on beverages and foods with added sugars to lower your calorie intake and help control your weight.  Examples of added sugars are sucrose, glucose, fructose, maltose, dextrose, corn syrups, high-fructose corn syrup, concentrated fruit juice, and honey.

7) Minimizing Salt Intake - Foods low in salt lower your risk of high blood pressure.  Strive to consume less than 1,500 mg of salt daily.  Choose "reduced-sodium" processed foods and limit soy sauce, steak sauce, Worcestershire sauce, flavored seasoning salts, pickles, and olives.  Use lemon juice, citrus zest, and hot chilies instead for flavoring.  Rinse canned tuna and salmon, feta cheese, and capers to remove excess sodium.

8) Increasing Fiber Intake - When eaten regularly as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, soluble fiber helps to lower blood cholesterol and may also reduce the risk of diabetes and colon and rectal cancers.  For every 1,000 calories in your diet, 14 grams of fiber (in both soluble and insoluble forms) should be eaten.  Foods high in soluble fibers includes oat bran, oatmeal, beans, peas, rice bran, barley, citrus fruits, strawberries, and apple pulp.  Foods high in insoluble fibers include whole-wheat breads, wheat cereals, wheat bran, cabbage, beets, carrots, Brussels sprouts, turnips, cauliflower, and apple skin.  Replace low-fiber foods (white bread, white rice, candy and chips) with fiber-rich foods (whole-grain bread, brown rice, fruits and vegetables).  Eat more raw vegetables and fresh fruits.  Eat high-fiber foods at every meal.

9) Drinking Water - Drink six to eight 8-oz glasses of water a day to ensure fiber in the diet is properly digested and fat loss is optimized.

10) Exercising Daily - A minimum of 30 minutes of moderate exercise every day will help you maintain optimal weight, keep off weight you lose, and improve physical and cardiovascular fitness.

11) Not Smoking - Cigarette smokers are 2 to 3 times more likely to die from coronary heart disease than non-smokers.

12) Consuming Alcohol in Moderation - Drinking too much alcohol can raise triglyceride levels in your blood and also lead to high blood pressure, heart failure, and increase calorie intake (which can lead to obesity and diabetes).  Excessive drinking can also cause stroke, cardiomyopathy, cardiac arrhythmia, and sudden cardiac death.
