By: | Posted in: Get Healthy, Heart Health, Nutrition, Supplements, Vitamins, Wellness

If there was just one piece of advice we could give you that would help you live longer and stay healthier throughout your life, we would encourage you to take better care of your heart and cardiovascular system.

Yep, it’s that important.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, and you’re not immune just because you’re in your prime years. Heart disease symptoms can occur at any age, so it’s important to take good care of your cardiovascular system, whether you’re in your early 20’s or your late 80’s.

Diet is not Enough

Lifestyle changes and diet can go a long way to preserve and protect your heart health, but those steps alone may not be enough to keep your heart in tip-top shape and prevent coronary diseases. Adding the right supplements to your diet could significantly lower your risk for cardiovascular issues and move you out of the danger zone if you’re diabetic, overweight or have high blood pressure.

How to Supercharge your Cardiovascular Health

If you’re going to take something for your heart, it’s smart thinking to maximize the benefits you get from your chosen supplements. Medmetrics recommends two products that should be taken together to maximize cardiovascular health benefits. We’ve selected these products because they’ve been rigorously studied and tested and both these powerhouses have additional benefits that will do both your body and mind a number of favors.

Fish Oil

Omega-3 fatty acids are by far one of the best supplements for heart health, but it can be pretty hard to get enough of these important essential fatty acids from just your diet. We recommend Ortho Molecular’s Orthomega 820 because of the multiple benefits it offers:



You probably already know about fish oil, but what the heck is Bergamot? Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) is a citrus fruit that looks kind of like a lime and grows almost exclusively in the Calabria region of southern Italy. Bergamot’s health benefits come from its unique profile of compounds that have been shown to have strong cholesterol-balancing properties and the ability to help maintain healthy LDL cholesterol levels.

Bergamot BPF by Ortho Molecular provides multidimensional support for cardiovascular health by maintaining healthy total cholesterol levels. Several clinical trials have shown the specific ingredients found in Bergamot BPF supports healthy cholesterol levels by maintaining inflammatory balance. Research has also shown that BPF provides antioxidant and inflammatory balancing properties that can help preserve coronary arteries.

As an added benefit, Bergamot BPF supports healthy CoQ-10 Levels, which may help lower fatigue and boost stamina.

To help you get started on your heart health goals, Medmetrics is offering 15% off Ortho Molecular’s OrthoMega 820 and Bergamot BPF from now until August 31st. To get your discount, just stop into our pharmacy and we’ll be happy to help you get your heart in shape!
