Whatever your inspiration, the benefits of a healthy heart are worth the effort. Not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, exercising regularly and taking the right supplements can all contribute to promoting cardiovascular health. * Equally, uncontrollable elements like fresh clean air may also support a healthy heart.
Heart Health™ Advanced LipiTrim® Ultra is a powerful antioxidant that contains 500 mg of Capros (Indian gooseberry; Phyllanthus emblica), an ingredient that has been used in Aruyvedic health practices for centuries, as well as the benefits of 250 mg of Prickly Pear (Opuntia ficus-indica) to help maintain normal cholesterol levels. Prickly Pear is also a source of antioxidants.* The powerful formula also contains a 50% hesperidin from citrus aurantium. A high concentration of hesperidin, like that in the Heart Health Advanced LipiTrim formula, is a polymethoxylated flavone that supports cardiovascular well-being.
This unique combination of ingredients helps promote a normal rate of cholesterol production. It also helps maintain healthy levels of triglycerides and promotes the normal synthesis of triglycerides in the liver. * Synthesis of cholesterol in the liver and other cells in the body is responsible for about 70 percent of our total cholesterol, with the other 30 percent from food. Maintaining healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels is important to the overall health of the cardiovascular system.*
Cholesterol is a soft, fat-like, waxy substance found in the bloodstream and in all the body's cells. It is an important part of a healthy body, because it is used for producing cell membranes and hormones in addition to other necessary bodily functions. Cholesterol cannot dissolve in the blood, however. It must be transported to and from the cells by carriers called lipoproteins, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). LDL is known as “bad” cholesterol, while HDL is known as “good” cholesterol.
Maintaining healthy levels of cholesterol is essential to supporting your heart health. *
†Capros Indian Gooseberry: 500 mg
Capros® is a patented and standardized extract of Indian gooseberry. As a powerful antioxidant, it helps support overall health as well as cardiovascular health. Indian gooseberry is the common name for Phyllanthus emblica. It is native to India and parts of the Middle East and its fruits have been used in Ayurvedic culture for thousands of years to support various aspects of health. Although small in size, the fruits are powerful antioxidants.* Capros® possesses adaptogenic properties which help provide resistance to stressors and promotes balance in the body. This is unique among superfruits and enhances Capros’ wellness profile. Capros is a patented, self-affirmed GRAS extract of Indian gooseberry which sets it apart from others on the market.
Indian gooseberry has been shown by scientific research to support cardiovascular health. Human clinical studies conducted in both India and the United States suggest a positive relationship between consuming the fruit and cardiovascular health for reasons such as the fruit’s ability to help maintain normal cholesterol and triglyceride levels.*

Prickly Pear (Opuntia ficus-indica): 250 mg
Prickly pear cactus, commonly referred to as nopal, is native to Mexico and widely distributed in regions of Africa, Australia and the Mediterranean basin. Its antioxidant content makes it a popular part of a healthy diet, especially in its native regions. Studies show that prickly pear cactus helps maintain normal cholesterol and blood glucose levels.
Citrus aurantium L. (50% hesperidin): 100 mg
Citrus aurantium L., commonly known as bitter orange, is a small, flowering, fruit-bearing tree native to southeast Asia. While commonly considered too sour to consume raw, its fruit, peel, and essential oils from its peel are used for a variety of things such as cooking, flavoring, aromatizing and for dietary supplements. Hesperidin is a bioflavonoid found in citrus fruits, and early studies suggest that its antioxidant properties may help maintain normal blood glucose levels.*
What does lifestyle have to do with maintaining a healthy heart?
There are simple, everyday things you can do to help maintain proper heart heath. Among those are:
Why is LDL cholesterol considered bad?
When too much LDL cholesterol circulates in the blood, it can slowly contribute to the build up of plaque in the inner walls of the arteries.
Why is HDL cholesterol considered good?
Up to one-fourth of blood cholesterol is carried by high-density lipoprotein (HDL). HDL cholesterol is known as the good cholesterol because a high level of it seems to protect the cardiovascular system. Medical experts think that HDL tends to carry cholesterol away from the arteries and back to the liver, where it's passed from the body. Some experts believe that HDL removes excess cholesterol from plaque in arteries, thus slowing the buildup.
What are triglycerides and how are they related to HDL and LDL?
A triglyceride is a form of fat. It comes from food and is also made in your body. People with high triglyceride levels often have high overall cholesterol, which is high LDL and low HDL cholesterol levels.
