Garlic and CoQ10 are both very important components for heart health; they act synergistically. Garlic helps to protect the heart and CoQ10 helps to energize it. Garlic reduces the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, which is one of the most important factors in the acceleration of atherosclerosis, and CoQ10 is responsible for transporting electrons in our respiratory chain. CoQ10 plays a crucial role in the energy production of the mitochondria in every cell. Heart cells contain twice as much CoQ10 than any other cell in our body and need more CoQ10 because of the high energy turnover and oxygen consumption.

• CoQ10 is perfectly dissolved in garlic macerate
Garlic has been used as both food and medicine in many cultures for thousands of years, dating at least as far back as the time when the Egyptian pyramids were built. Garlic was claimed to help prevent heart disease including atherosclerosis, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and cancer.
Animal studies, and investigational studies in humans, have suggested cardiovascular benefits of garlic. A Czech study found garlic supplementation reduced accumulation of cholesterol on vascular walls of animals. Another study had similar results, with garlic supplementation significantly reducing aortic plaque deposits of cholesterol-fed rabbits. Another study showed that supplementation with garlic extract inhibited vascular calcification in human patients with high blood cholesterol. The known vasodilative effect of garlic is possibly caused by catabolism of garlic-derived polysulphides to hydrogen sulphide in red blood cells, a reaction that is dependent on reduced thiols in or on the RBC membrane. Hydrogen sulphide is an endogenous cardio protective vascular cell signalling molecule.
Cardiosteroil Garlic is available in liquid capsules and can be taken in combination with Cardiosteroil soft gels.
