10-19-20 Building Blocks for Cardiovascular Health — Carolyn Dean MD ND
Cardiovascular health is not constructed on the basis of a single nutrient or a single approach. Instead, the key building blocks for cardiovascular performance work holistically and synergistically to achieve their health outcomes. Actually, ALL nutrients work together to perform their functions in the body.
Longitudinal clinical studies on the effects of nutrients on cardiovascular health point to several true ‘GIANTS’ in the field: magnesium, potassium, vitamin B6, B12, vitamin C and D3/K2.
Dietary intake of whole food Sustaining health and well-being starts by a review of your dietary intake of fresh, whole food. Start with whole, complete foods including healthy proteins, only a few servings of fruit a day, and raw or lightly cooked vegetables. Avoid processed foods and oils, sugars, and gluten that diminish health and vitality.
Even with a good diet, you’ll get less magnesium, minerals, and vitamins in your food than you would have gotten 30 years ago because of the way our farmland has been depleted and our food is being heavily processed.
The Benefits of Dietary Supplements To complete your diet and optimize your cardiovascular performance it’s important to take highly absorbed, food-based, meticulously prepared formulas created by Dr. Carolyn Dean. Here’s a list of where to start and why:
Magnesium is an essential mineral that serves as a structural component of the skeleton; assists in 1,000 enzymatic reactions involved in the synthesis of energy, DNA, and proteins; and is required for proper nerve conduction and muscle contraction. The way in which magnesium influences cardiac health is well researched and well documented. Magnesium supports vascular health, lowers inflammatory mediators and reduce a angiotensin-induced aldosterone synthesis, all of which can lower blood pressure. Dr. Dean’s magnesium recommendation: ReMag Magnesium Solution.
Vitamin D is actually a hormone and is made by the body through summer sun exposure, 30 minutes if you have fair skin with as much skin exposed as possible. If you can’t get proper exposure to the sun, then Dr. Dean recommends supplementing with Vitamin D. To get the most benefit from vitamin D you have to have the other co-factors in your body as well – those include magnesium, vitamin K2, zinc, and boron. Both zinc and boron can be found in ReMyte Mineral Solution – ReMag’s sister mineral product and you can get vitamin D3K2 from Dr. Dean’s D2K2ReSet.
Vitamin K2 is needed to get calcium in the body where it needs to be, in bones and teeth, not arteries, and it protects against vitamin D toxicity. Like magnesium, nearly everyone is deficient, because our eggs and butter and other natural sources are either missing from the diet or come from industrially raised animals not fed on grass. Vitamin K2 supplementation may dramatically reduce fracture rates and even reverses arterial calcification.
Vitamin B-6 – Vitamin B6 (pyridoxal-5-phosphate). As a coenzyme, vitamin B6 assists in an amazing variety of tasks – the creation of heme, the iron-containing component of red blood cells; making the hormone serotonin (the “feel good” hormone); processing carbohydrates for energy; keeping the nervous system working smoothly, and supporting hundreds of other jobs. Having low levels of this key nutrient can lead to skin disorders, depression, dizziness, headaches, and other, more serious problems, such as heart attacks and strokes. Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate, or P5P as it is commonly known, is the active form of vitamin B6 found in Dr. Dean’s product, ReAline. In foods or most supplements, vitamin B6 is found in one of three forms: pyridoxine hydrochloride, pyridoxal, or pyridoxamine. Inside the body, these forms of B6 have to be converted by the liver to the active form the body needs – P5P. Low rates of conversion from the inactive to the active form of vitamin B6 have been reported, especially in people with impaired liver function, Celiac’s disease, older adults, and in children with autism. By consuming vitamin B6 in the active P5P form, conversion is no longer necessary, and the full benefits are available immediately after absorption.
Vitamin C – Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) neutralizes a variety of reactive oxygen species and recycles important cellular antioxidants. The antioxidant activities of vitamin C may protect the lining of blood vessels from damage caused by oxidative stress and increase the availability of nitric oxide, a gaseous signaling molecule that helps relax arterial walls. Vitamin C ReSet is a really fun way to get your daily dose of vitamin C in a sparkly, delicious berry drink!
Tonight on Dr. Carolyn Dean LIVE we’ll be talking with Dr. Carolyn Dean about Building Blocks for Cardiovascular Health along with a wide range of health topics and safe solutions. You will love hearing the beneficial interactions with callers and hosts alike including the body/mind connection, identifying the ‘conflict’ in the ‘conflict basis’ of disease and much more!! Remember, the valuable information, suggestions, and insights about your health choices should always be discussed with your doctor.
