The Cardiovascular System: 3 Foods with a Huge Impact

The cardiovascular system affects and regulates a great number of functions vital to human existence. So, when your body isn’t getting the nutrition it needs, you’re bound to face some serious problems that will only worsen if those nutritional requirements aren’t met. garlic

Some symptoms of a faulty cardiovascular system are high or low blood pressure, plaque build up, heart attack, inability to exercise, shortness of breath, bad circulation, chest pains, high cholesterol, blood clots, stroke, heart attack, angina and death.

Scary, right?

If you’re already suffering with one or more of these conditions, or you’re ready to take some preventative measures, it’s time to look at the commitment you’re making to your nutrition.

The best thing you can do for your cardiovascular system is to eat an organic diet full of fruits, vegetables, and unprocessed foods, and get some physical activity on a daily basis, and reduce your stress levels.

Beyond this, make sure you’re getting a heavy dose of certain foods which are known to specifically support heart health. Three of the best are Hawthorn Berry, Garlic, and Grape Seed.

Hawthorn Berry

Hawthorn berry is a highly studied food that’s used widely to treat cardiovascular problems.

In addition to improving circulation and facilitating healthy blood pressure, Hawthorn is used in Europe as a common, approved treatment for heart failure.

A patient with heart failure will experience such symptoms as fluid retention, shortness of breath, fatigue, coughing, and more.

Hawthorn has been demonstrated to improve the heart’s maximum workload, enabling it to use oxygen more efficiently. This helps protect the heart from cardiac arrest.

Hawthorn is also used to prevent plaque from forming in the arteries and to promote the clearance of cholesterol in the liver.


Garlic is lauded for its many health benefits. Among them is promoting good cardiovascular health.

Numerous in vivo and in vitro studies have shown garlic to reduce factors associated with cardiovascular disease. It’s been indicated for improving cholesterol levels and reducing platelet aggregation (the sticking together of blood cells).

Additionally, garlic has been proven to improve circulation and blood properties, as well as blood pressure.

Grape Seed Extract

Grape Seed Extract has garnered a lot of attention for its anti-aging benefits, but much of what makes it so aesthetically helpful also works to promote cardiac health.

Specifically, the polyphenols (antioxidants) in grape seed work to prevent lipid peroxidation, preventing atherosclerosis (deposits of certain fats that block the blood vessels).

Grape Seed has also been proven to be so powerful enough to help preserve healthy endothelial (blood vessel lining) function, even in the face of a poor diet.

Polyphenols also assist in preventing blood clots leading to heart and stroke.

Hawthorn Berry, Garlic, and Grape Seed Extract are the main ingredients in NutriPlex Formula’s VasCor.
