The heart is one of the body’s most important muscles. Unfortunately, stress on the heart increases with time due to lifestyle choices, environmental factors, genetics, and aging – potentially leading to heart failure.
Heart failure affects us all, both the young and old. It is the leading cause of hospitalizations and mortality in older adults. Once heart failure begins to develop, mortality increases at a dramatic rate – rising with age.

This HEART support supplement is made with 5 different ingredients possessing cardiotonic properties, as well as vitamins that are crucial for cardiovascular health. Together, the ingredients in our HEART capsules provide a comprehensive profile to support heart muscle function and health.

Heart Supp Facts
- Vitamin D3 (as Cholecalciferol) – 50mcg (250% DV)
Vitamin D’s role in promoting bone health because it helps the body absorb calcium. It may also inhibit inflammation, vascular smooth muscle proliferation, and vascular calcification, as well as regulate blood sugar metabolism, blood pressure and volume.
- Vitamin K (as Vitamin K2 Menaquinone-7) – 200mcg (167% DV)
Another fat-soluble vitamin that’s present in green leafy vegetables, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, fish, liver, meat, and eggs.
Mainly serves as a cofactor for post-translational γ-carboxylation of vitamin K-dependent proteins (VKDP). An insufficient intake of vitamin K negatively affects VKDP’s functions throughout the body.Some of the specific VKDPs that could be affected are proteins C, S, and Z, which contribute to normal blood coagulation. Therefore, this vitamin plays an important role in overall cardiovascular health.
Vitamin K2, as menaquinone-7 (MK-7), because of its higher bioavailability and longer half-life. MK-7 is absorbed and utilized better and remains in the body longer. Moreover, supplementing with vitamin K2 is associated with inhibited arterial calcification and stiffening.
- Rejuna (Terminalia Arjuna) 10:1 Extract (bark) – 750mg
A proprietary, wild-crafted arjuna extract known to support heart health and offer antioxidant properties.
Rejuna, a high-quality arjuna bark extract made by Verdure Sciences possesses the following properties:
- Benolea Olive Extract (leaf) (std. to 16% oleuropein) – 500mg
Olive leaf extract, this trademarked version was developed by Iff Health, that’s standardized to contain at least 16% oleuropein and 30% polyphenols.
Benolea was chosen here because of its high purity and stability — a result of the extraction process that Iff Health uses, called EFLA HyperPure.
- Curcumin C3 Complex (min 95% Curcuminoids Turmeric Rhizome Extract) (containing Curcumin, Demethoxycurcumin & Bisdemethoxycurcumin) – 400mg
Curcumin C3 Complex includes the curcuminoids demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin, which bring additional benefits and purportedly help ‘stabilize’ curcumin.
This is an extract derived from turmeric roots (Curcuma longa), also known as rhizomes.
Since curcumin has poor bioavailability on its own, meaning that the body has a hard time absorbing and utilizing the chemical, Sabinsa incorporated two additional curcuminoids to stabilize the curcumin. Your body will be better equipped to readily absorb the curcumin in the small intestine and reap its benefits.
- Coenzyme Q10 – 200mg
Coenzyme Q10, also known as CoQ10 or ubiquinone, is a naturally occurring compound that’s highly concentrated in human mitochondria. Coenzyme Q10 takes on several roles in the body, but it’s mainly responsible for assisting in the electron transport chain, which produces adenosine triphosphate (ATP) — the energy currency of the cell.
CoQ10 is one of the most powerful lipid antioxidants in the body.
- Apigenin – 50mg
Apigenin is a flavonoid that’s naturally found in a variety of plants, such as vegetables, fruits, and herbs.
A few different human clinical trials have found that supplementing with apigenin may improve cognitive performance, increase sleep quality and daytime functioning, and help decrease pain associated with osteoarthritis, blood pressure, body weight, symptoms correlated with anxiety/depression.[Most notably, apigenin has demonstrated cardioprotective effects.
