Thin Your Blood and Support Normal Blood Flow
My powerful blood circulation supplement, Circulate®, helps: Support normal circulation, blood flow, and blood viscosity (thickness) Promote your body's normal blood-clotting mechanism Maintain normal blood pressure levels Support optimal LDL to HDL cholesterol ratios Maintain the health of artery walls Provide powerful antioxidant protection
Maintaining a "healthy heart" goes far beyond just taking care of your heart itself. It's critical to pay equal attention to the other parts of your cardiovascular system—specifically, your arteries, veins, blood vessels, and your blood itself. In other words, your circulatory system.
For some time now, a natural enzyme called nattokinase has been at the core of my nutrient recommendations for circulatory health. And I picked clinically studied NSK-SD® nattokinase for Circulate for its superior potency. I've combined this effective enzyme with a remarkable undersea wonder called Seanol®, along with mixed tocotrienols for superior antioxidant and cardiovascular support. Circulate addresses these three top cardiovascular markers all at the same time: blood pressure, cholesterol, and circulation—in just two capsules per day.
Keep your blood flowing freely as you age
Healthy blood flow means maintaining proper blood thickness or viscosity. Fibrin is one of the most important components of blood viscosity—it acts like a net to stop bleeding and is a normal and necessary part of the healing process when you cut your finger. Plasmin is an enzyme that helps dissolve and break down fibrin to keep your blood flowing normally. But its production slows as you age.
Nattokinase resembles plasmin closely enough that it actually breaks down fibrin. Plus, it stimulates your body's natural ability to produce plasmin on its own, to help support normal circulation, blood flow, and blood viscosity1. The nattokinase in Circulate includes the full research dosage of 2,000 FU (fibrin units) of nattokinase per day, which I believe is critical to its effectiveness. A super antioxidant for healthy cholesterol…
Circulate also includes an incredibly powerful sea-based antioxidant called Seanol®. It's derived from a unique brown seaweed called Ecklonia cava, which grows more than 100 feet beneath the sea, deep off the coasts of Japan and Korea. Seanol is truly a superfood, giving you both polyphenols, standard in most antioxidants, plus phlorotannins.
These combine to give Seanol an impressive ORAC score of 8,368! This much antioxidant power would take pounds of broccoli to match. And where most antioxidants are water soluble, meaning they're expelled through your urine in about 30 minutes, Seanol is 40% lipid (fat) soluble, so it stays in your body much longer—outlasting other antioxidants and helping to protect you from oxidative damage for a full 12 hours.
Seanol is particularly valuable when it comes to keeping your cholesterol in check. Two clinical studies found that 300 mg of Seanol a day (the dosage in Circulate) for six weeks not only helped maintain healthy LDL cholesterol levels, but actually supported healthy levels of protective HDL cholesterol.2 And supporting HDL levels is one of the hardest things to do, but probably the most important thing in terms of your cholesterol health.
Seanol is great for maintaining healthy blood pressure, too
You already know that blood pressure is critical to your overall health. Ideally you want to keep your blood pressure at 120/80. Seanol goes a long way in helping you reach and maintain that "magic" number by helping support the endothelial lining of your blood vessels. Plus, it helps generate nitric oxide, which keeps your arteries open, relaxed, and healthy. In a clinical study, participants given 300 mg of Seanol per day (the dosage in Circulate) for six weeks had measurably improved blood flow and circulation.
Oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) is a measurement of antioxidant power, and Seanol out-performs just about every common source of antioxidants by leaps and bounds!
Seanol's perfect partner for total heart health
To round out Circulate, I added mixed tocotrienols. These are powerful antioxidants that fight lipid peroxidation, which can damage the cells in your blood vessel walls. As members of the vitamin E family, tocotrienols have tremendous antioxidant power to help reduce oxidative stress in the body and promote healthy blood vessels which in turn support overall cardiovascular health.3
Circulate not only helps improve circulation, but also supports healthy cholesterol levels and healthy blood pressure, all at the same time.
