Numerous international university studies have shown that Cardio Naturel's ingredients (Dihydroquercetin) in combination with Ascorbic Acid:
- Has one of the highest ORAC values*
- Supports the integrity of the capillaries*
- May help attenuate oxidation of low-density lipoproteins*
- Supports healthy blood viscosity*
- Supports healthy structure of thrombocytes*
- Supports healthy cholesterol levels already within normal levels*
These university studies include I.M. Sechenov Moscow Medical Academy; Institute of Plant Substances (Moscow, Russia); Russian State Medical University (Russia); People’s Friendship University of Russia (Moscow, Russia); Russian Academy of Sciences, as well as University of Hawaii; Kitasato University (Tokyo, Japan); Institute of Physical Chemistry (Dusseldorf, Germany), and many others.
Larix gmelinii grows in Siberia and the Russian Far East, which are recognized worldwide to be of very high environmental and ecological importance.
The composition of the bioflavonoids derived from Larix gmelinii and the related species has been studied by Russian scientists since the early 1960s. Upon optimizing the methods of extraction of the flavonoid from Larch species without a negative ecological impact, the scientists started to investigate beneficial properties of this compound.
Numerous experimental studies have shown health-related effects of this unique flavonoid in supporting the proper functioning of various bodily organs and tissues. Of particular interest to the researchers was a potential combination of Larch-derived Dihydroquercetin with Ascorbic Acid.
As it was shown that Dihydroquercetin works synergistically with Ascorbic Acid in such a way that it limits inactivation of vitamin C and, thus, prolongs the functioning of this vitamin in the body.
Scientists at the Research Institute of Pharmacology of the Siberian Department of the Russian Academy of Medical Scientists have spent several years on determining the optimal ratio between Larch-derived Dihydroquercetin and Ascorbic Acid that would enhance beneficial heart-supporting properties of both compounds. Thus, it was discovered through animal research that the combination Dihydroquercetin and Ascorbic acid inhibits lipid peroxidation in the lipid layers of cellular membranes as well as inhibits the oxidation of low-density lipoproteins (LDL). It was also shown that the combination optimizes the blood oxygenation by supporting the structure of red blood cells. Other experimental studies indicate that the combination may help support healthy cholesterol levels*.
