Why Choose nutraMetrix® Heart Health™ Advanced LipiTrim® Ultra?


Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and worldwide for both men and women.1  Many factors may contribute to poor heart health, such as regularly eating an unhealthy diet of processed, high-calorie and high-fat foods, smoking, or living a sedentary lifestyle. Equally, uncontrollable elements like pollution may also put you at risk for cardiovascular issues.

nutraMetrix® Heart Health™ Advanced LipiTrim® Ultra is a powerful antioxidant that helps promote delivery of healthy levels of LDL throughout the body and a normal rate of cholesterol production. It also helps maintain healthy levels triglycerides and promotes the normal synthesis of triglycerides in the liver.* Synthesis of cholesterol in the liver and other cells in the body is responsible for about 70 percent of our total cholesterol, with the other 30 percent from food. Maintaining healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels is important to the overall health of the cardiovascular system.

Cholesterol is a soft, fat-like, waxy substance found in the bloodstream and in all of the body's cells. It is an important part of a healthy body, because it is used for producing cell membranes and hormones in addition to other necessary bodily functions. Cholesterol cannot dissolve in the blood, though. It has to be transported to and from the cells by carriers called lipoproteins, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). LDL is known as 'bad' cholesterol, while HDL is known as “good” cholesterol.

The body produces LDL cholesterol naturally, but many people inherit genes from their family that cause their body to create excess amounts of cholesterol. Eating saturated fats, trans fats and dietary cholesterol can also increase the overall amount of cholesterol in the blood. High cholesterol levels can be dangerous and is a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, maintaining healthy levels of cholesterol is essential to supporting your heart health.

  • Antioxidant
  • Helps promote delivery of healthy levels of LDL throughout the body
  • Promotes a healthy rate of cholesterol production

Key Ingredients


†Capros Indian Gooseberry: 250 mg

Capros® is a patented and standardized extract of Indian gooseberry. As a powerful antioxidant, it helps support optimal health as well as provide effects of optimal cardiovascular health, anti-aging, and sports performance benefits. Capros® possesses adaptogenic properties which help provide resistance to stressors and promotes balance in the body. This is unique among superfruits and enhances Capros’ wellness profile beyond the standard benefits provided by generic antioxidants. Capros is a multi-patented, certified-organic, self-affirmed GRAS extract of Indian gooseberry which sets it apart from others on the market.

Indian gooseberry is the common name for Phyllanthus emblica. It is native to India and parts of the Middle East and its fruits have been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years for various health aspects.  Although small in size, the fruits are a nutritious source of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and a diverse blend of polyphenolic compounds.  In fact, the edible fruit tissue contains 160 times the vitamin C of an apple, and up to 720 mg of vitamin C per 100 grams of fruit pulp. 

Indian gooseberry has been well supported by scientific research to help maintain optimal cardiovascular health. Human clinical studies conducted in both India and the United States have discovered a multitude of cardioprotective benefits from consuming the fruit, such as supporting healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels, lowering C-reactive protein, and reducing oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particles.

Citrus sinensis (25% Polymethoxyflavones): 150 mg
Citrus sinensis, commonly known as sweet orange, is an evergreen tree native to southern China, and has since been cultivated for thousands of years in tropical and subtropical regions. The juice of Citrus sinensis packs significant amounts of vitamin C, carotenoids, folate and flavonoids.1,2 Among multiple beneficial uses, sweet orange juice is used in providing cardiovascular support. Sweet orange is also a great source of potassium, and high potassium intakes are believed to play a role in helping to maintain optimal cardiovascular health.

According to a World Health Organization report, citrus fruits support normal levels of homocysteine.3 Homocysteine is an amino acid that humans naturally produce. Studies have shown a correlation  between homocysteine levels and cardiovascular health. High levels of folate are responsible for this support of normal levels of homocysteine.3 Folate, as mentioned above, is present in Citrus sinensis.

Additionally, studies have shown consuming sweet orange juice appears to maintain normal blood lipid profiles regarding cholesterol. One study in particular, consisting of 25 men and women, concluded that daily consumption of 750 ml of orange juice significantly increased plasma vitamin C concentrations. 4

Frequently Asked Questions


What does lifestyle have to do with maintaining a healthy heart?
There are simple, everyday things you can do to help maintain proper heart heath. Among these are:

  • Not smoking
  • Maintaining a healthy height-to-weight ratio
  • Eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetable and whole grains
  • Limiting the consumption of total and saturated fat
  • Exercising regularly
  • Working with your physician to monitor cholesterol, blood pressure, homocysteine and C-reactive protein levels
  • Starting a complete nutritional supplementation program designed to help maintain proper cardiovascular health

Why is LDL cholesterol considered bad?

When too much LDL cholesterol circulates in the blood, it can slowly build up in the inner walls of the arteries that feed the heart and brain. Together with other substances, it can form plaque, a thick, hard deposit that can clog those arteries. If a clot forms and blocks a narrowed artery, it can cause serious heart problems.

Why is HDL cholesterol considered good? 

Up to one-fourth of blood cholesterol is carried by high-density lipoprotein (HDL). HDL cholesterol is known as the good cholesterol because a high level of it seems to protect against heart problems. Medical experts think that HDL tends to carry cholesterol away from the arteries and back to the liver, where it's passed from the body. Some experts believe that HDL removes excess cholesterol from plaque in arteries, thus slowing the buildup.

What are triglycerides and how are they related to HDL and LDL?

A triglyceride is a form of fat. It comes from food and is also made in your body. People with high triglyceride levels often have high overall cholesterol, which is high LDL and low HDL cholesterol levels.

Cholesterol

This product is new for me but all the other products I have taken so I decided to take my consultants advice and try it. I have trouble taking Cholesterol medicine due to jumping/cramping legs so I'm hoping this product preforms like the others and improves my health.
