• Improves circulation throughout the body.
• Provides enhanced enzyme metabolism and oxygen utilization in the heart muscle.
Heart disease is the number-one killer of both men and women in the United States. By supporting the heart and circulatory system with natural supplements, we may be able to improve circulatory health and decrease the risk of heart disease and related factors.
How It Works
Ginkgo biloba leaf is one of the most popular and well-studied herbs in the world. Its ability to increase circulation has been documented in numerous clinical trials. Hawthorn berries contain flavonoids and other compounds that may benefit the circulatory system, especially the heart. They also contain volatile oils, saponins, alkaloids, vitamins and minerals.
Each capsule contains a 425 mg blend of Ginkgo biloba leaves – concentrated powdered extract, and hawthorn berries.
Nature’s Sunshine Advantage
Nature’s Sunshine combines the peripheral-circulation-building benefits of ginkgo with the heart-strengthening and stabilizing properties of hawthorn into one capsule for maximum circulatory support.
Ginkgo biloba contains flavonoid glycosides, proanthocyanidins, terpene derivatives and other active compounds. It has demonstrated antioxidant properties
giving it the ability to quench free radicals. Research indicates that ginkgo’s circulatory-system benefits may result from this special ability.
Randomized, double-blind clinical studies using standardized hawthorn berry extract show that hawthorn appears to increase the efficiency of nerve impulses in, and protect against oxygen deprivation of, the heart muscle. Researchers in Germany conducted a randomized, controlled study and found that hawthorn extract can improve heart function in people suffering from chronic heart disease. Hawthorn patients also reported fewer overall symptoms, less fatigue
and less shortness of breath
A recent study (downloadable pdf) findings. In this condition, the heart is no longer able to pump adequate blood throughout the body. Researchers concluded, based on the literature review, that hawthorn extract showed “significant benefit” for patients with chronic heart failure, and it appeared to be safe. Hawthorn is a key ingredient in Nature’s Sunshine’s Cardio Assurance and is also available as a single Hawthorn Berries.
