LipoCardia by Thorne 60 Double Packets Cardiovascular Health
LipoCardia® helps maintain healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels.*
LipoCardia supports 38 mechanisms that promote cardiovascular health.* Backed by clinical research, it provides comprehensive support of healthy lipid levels, including LDL and triglycerides.*
Benefits - Heart/Vessels
Our bodies need cholesterol. But too much LDL-cholesterol can contribute to adverse cardiovascular conditions. LipoCardia® can help maintain already normal lipid levels (LDL, LDL-P, LDL size, HDL, HDL-P, HDL size, HDL function, and triglycerides) by addressing multiple mechanisms of action associated with cholesterol and triglyceride metabolism.* Co-developed by Mark Houston, MD, of the Hypertension Institute, and Thorne, and backed by clinical research, LipoCardia can be used with diet and lifestyle recommendations or as an add-on to other heart and blood vessel support products.* LipoCardia brings together a number of key heart and vascular nutrients in a formula with substantial savings over buying those supplements separately.*
LipoCardia provides comprehensive support for the quantity and quality of lipid particles.* It promotes vascular endothelial function and helps maintain a normal inflammatory response to vascular insults.* It also provides antioxidant support to offset LDL oxidation, and safely supports lipid metabolism without significantly lowering CoQ10 levels.* The 11 ingredients in LipoCardia include botanical extracts: curcumin, green tea, and quercetin (which are bound to phospholipids to enhance absorption) to provide antioxidant activity and support the body's normal inflammatory response in the blood vessels, lycopene to provide important antioxidant activity, well-researched aged-garlic extract and berberine for metabolic and lipid support, and licorice root (DGL) to provide antioxidant support.* LipoCardia also includes red yeast rice for support of lipids already in the normal range and phytosterols that help decrease cholesterol absorption.* Other nutrients for lipid support include trans-resveratrol and N-acetylcysteine.*

Curcumin has been shown to reduce the therapeutic efficacy of cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) in animal studies. In vitro research revealed that curcumin decreased camptothecin-induced death of cultured breast cancer cells. Curcumin might also interfere with the absorption and efficacy of the chemotherapy drug irinotecan, used to treat colon cancer. The concurrent use of curcumin with these agents should be avoided.
Red yeast rice can cause gastritis, abdominal discomfort, and elevated liver enzymes. It is possible that reactions similar to those caused by HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor drugs (statins) can be caused by red yeast; however, those adverse reactions have not been reported for red yeast rice extracts.
This product may cause a temporary and harmless red coloring of the stool.
