The Cardio ION Health Profile provides a comprehensive set of parameters to determine overall nutritional status with a specific focus on reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and improving cardiovascular health.

 

The Cardio ION identifies key nutritionally modifiable risk factors for CVD, including:

  • Fatty acid imbalances that lead to chronic inflammation, shown by current research to be one of the most probable causes of CVD
  • High fibrinogen that can make the blood more sticky or viscous, increasing the risk of clots
  • Homocysteine, increasingly recognized as an important risk factor for not only CVD, but stroke and dementia as well
  • Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), a fat-soluble, vitamin-like substance in every human cell that is involved in key biochemical reactions that produce energy in cells, and it also acts as an antioxidant
  • Fasting insulin, an indicator of insulin resistance which often leads to metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and CVD
  • Sufficiency of antioxidant protection, shown in studies to help reduce fatty deposits on artery walls and limit cell damage that can lead to both CVD and cancer
