Our probiotic supplement FLORASSIST® Heart Health uses the novel probiotic strain Lactobacillus reuteri 30242 to support cardiovascular health. This probiotic has been shown to support already-healthy levels of cholesterol, fibrinogen and C-reactive proteins, all factors that promote cardiovascular health.
FLORASSIST® Heart Health contains a novel probiotic, Lactobacillus reuteri 30242, that has been shown, in clinical trials, to support healthy cholesterol levels already within the normal range. Additionally, L. reuteri 30242 has been shown to support healthy levels already within the normal range of apoB-100 (a protein found in LDL cholesterol), C-reactive protein and fibrinogen.
Supports Already-Healthy Cholesterol
Probiotics have formed a vital part of traditional diets for thousands of years, in the form of fermented milk and vegetable products such as yogurt and pickles. This is credited with contributing to the optimal health and longevity of some studied populations.
Now, scientific research has uncovered heart health benefits for a specific probiotic organism, Lactobacillus reuteri 30242. This strain has been shown in clinical trials to help maintain already-healthy cholesterol levels, including the important LDL cholesterol.
Promotes Healthy Levels of Apoproteins
Maintaining already healthy levels of cholesterol is important and so is LDL cholesterol. But you may not have heard about the importance of molecules called apoproteins that are part of cholesterol. Apolipoproteins B100 and A1 are, according to medical research, as important as cholesterol itself. And lactobacillus reuteri 30242 has been shown to promote a healthy balance of apolipoproteins B100 and A1 for levels already within the normal range.
Encourages Healthy Levels of CRP
C-reactive protein (CRP) has emerged as a powerful predictor of overall cardiovascular health. Lactobacillus reuteri 30242 has been shown to encourage healthy CRP levels already within the normal range.
Maintains Healthy Fibrinogen Levels
An important contributor to blood clotting, fibrinogen levels are often used as an indicator of cardiovascular wellness. Lactobacillus reuteri 30242 has been shown to help maintain healthy fibrinogen levels already within the normal range.
FLORASSIST® Heart Health has been created for convenient use as an easy-to-swallow capsule with no unpleasant aftertaste. One capsule with food twice daily is a great addition to maintaining a heart-healthy lifestyle.
