CIRCULATION PLUS is a special formulation designed specifically for the cardiovascular or circulatory system. It combines odorcontrolled garlic and onion with soya lecithin (a natural fat emuls i f ier ) and bioflavonoids (to strengthen capillaries) with a variety of other beneficial herbs. These include cayenne and ginseng for their mild stimulating effects, hawthorn berry as a cardiac tonic, and ginkgo biloba for its ability to dilate blood vessels and promote circulation.
Noted as a vasodilator and for its ability to reduce blood cholesterol levels, garlic has long been known to benefit hypertension and improve circulation. It also seemingly has the ability to chip away at the plaque that adheres to the arterial wall. This plaque is made up of fatty deposits and calcium and it restricts blood flow as it builds up and increases blood pressure, much like pinching a garden hose decreases water flow and builds up back pressure.
The soya lecithin can prevent fats from accumulating in the liver and also promotes the movement of fats and blood cholesterol. Fats are processed in the liver, but they must be in the form of HDLs (high density lipoproteins ) to be easily transported and processed. Garlic and lecithin assist your body in the production of the beneficial HDLs and reduces the levels of LDLs or “bad fats” in your body. Lecithin is also rich in Phosphoric acid, choline and inositol, all of which are abundant in the body and have added benefit to the brain and nerves.
Onion is also a strong medicine. The antibacterial properties were first described by Louis Pasteur, and its benefits to the blood have been detailed in dozens of studies. Onion has many healthful sulfur compounds along with adenosine, prostaglandin A and a bacteriostatic lachrymatory factor. This lachrymatory factor is what makes you cry when you cut an onion, but inside your body it becomes strong medicine. In combination with the herbs and nutrients in Circulation Plus, onion can affect the circulation and fibrinolytic activity of blood, prompting the flow of blood to the extremities.
By slowing the coagulation of blood and reducing cholesterol levels, blood pressure can be regulated and blood flow can be improved. The added benefit of stronger arteries and veins helps get the blood where it is needed. If cold or numb fingers and toes cause you discomfort or poor circulation is putting undue strain on your cardiovascular system, Circulation Plus may be for you.*
