Cardiac Health

Cardio-Plus is a supplement from Standard Process that helps to maintain a healthy heart. For the cardiovascular system to function properly, the heart muscle must be strong and the vessels must be clear, unobstructed, and sufficiently dilated to adequately transport the blood.

Studies also suggest that vitamin B6 helps to maintain a strong and healthy heart by aiding in blood pressure regulation and proper circulation. It can also help to maintain appropriate homocysteine levels in the blood.
