Your heart is the strongest organ in your body, responsible for powering all body systems with life-giving energy, oxygen, and nutrients. Just think about how hard-working your heart muscle really is as it pumps night and day – even when you are sleeping. This large muscle works every second of every single day so you can do all of the things you love to do. Did you know that every day your heart beats about 100,000 times? That’s a lot of work. And as such, you want to be sure you’re giving your heart the best tools it needs to do its job well. That’s where VitaPulse and Princeton Nutrients comes into play.
As we age, our heart has a natural tendency to slow down in the production of one very important energy-producing molecule called Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10. This vitamin-like substance, found in every cell in the body, is responsible for forming what’s known as cellular energy metabolism, or ATP (adenosine triphosphate). And, as you may already have guessed, this nutrient is even more important during the natural aging process. You see, CoQ10 not only plays a vital role in the cellular energy production within the center of each cell (mitochondria) to support a strong and healthy heartbeat, but it also is known to help combat the visible signs of aging, like fine lines, wrinkles, and even unwanted age-related weight gain to promote total body health.
As early in life as the age of 30, your body can begin to decline in the production of essential nutrients, including amino acids, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other compounds needed to maintain good health during the aging process. However, without optimal levels of these vital nutrients, your health may suffer in a number of different ways including an increased risk of heart disease and other chronic illnesses, premature signs of skin aging, joint pain, and more.
While all of these naturally-produced substances are important during the aging process, the most vital nutrients are those that keep your heart healthy. Because after all, heart disease is the number one killer of both men and women, responsible for approximately one in every four deaths in the United States every year.1
Here is a quick breakdown of the three antioxidant ingredients in the protective formula of VitaPulse:
Also known as Vitamin Q, CoQ10 is found in over 95% of all healthy cells in your body, including those of your hard-working heart. It is needed to carry out a variety of biological tasks, including metabolism, energy production, anti-aging, and reducing the risk of cellular damage from the oxidative process – one of the leading causes of heart cell damage.
Because CoQ10 is regarded as being one of the most powerful ways to boost intracellular metabolism, also known as ATP, it is very important to maintain optimal levels of this nutrient, especially for people over the age of 50 (when CoQ10 production drops off).
This substance is also known as pyrroloquinoline quinone. Able to promote proper overall cellular function by supporting mitochondrial health, this nutrient is technically a vitamin, but it acts as an antioxidant – a protective compound well-known to reduce cellular damage caused by the natural aging process. PQQ is found in your body within all cells, but the highest concentrations are located in major organs like that of your heart, kidneys, liver, and lungs, as they are the organs that require the most energy. Levels of PQQ usually decline later in life, and that’s why it is so important to add more into your daily health regimen if you are concerned about heart disease risk factors, such as being overweight and having high blood pressure or cholesterol imbalance.
PQQ is found in some common foods, like green peppers, spinach, and carrots, albeit in small amounts. VitaPulse provides 10 mg of PQQ to address any deficiency or systemic effects that may occur as a result of the loss of this vital nutrient.
3. N-acetylcysteine (NAC)
This antioxidant is derived from another compound called cysteine. Once inside the body, cysteine converts into NAC, where it can support the health of your hardworking heart in a very unique way.2
You see, elevated levels of another amino acid called homocysteine is known to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease in older adults. However, NAC may help to lower homocysteine levels to support a healthy heart.3,4
In addition to that, NAC also aids in raising the levels of another antioxidant compound in the body known as glutathione. Also known as the “Mother” of all antioxidants, glutathione is able to improve cellular protection from free radical damage (a harmful byproduct of the natural aging process).5
If you want to find a simple way to boost the health of your heart without making major changes in your current lifestyle, adding VitaPulse by Princeton Nutrients may help. Containing three antioxidants for the heart, the unique formula of VitaPulse is able to not only boost cellular energy within heart muscle cells, but it also helps to prevent damage to the entire cardiovascular system. So, what are you waiting for? Check with your doctor to see if this energy boosting supplement for your heart could work for your specific needs, today!
