Product Review – Body Balance for a Healthy Heart

Stacked Stones

Local innovation leads to a new heart health supplement

For over 10 years now David Burke has run a very successful naturopathic practice in Waterford, offering services including acidity and allergy testing, nutritional medicine, NLP and hypnotherapy. I spoke to Wexford man StephenBody Balance image Carr with whom David recently set up Celtic Nutrition. The Company’s aim is to bring David’s unique nutritional supplement formulas to the Irish marketplace. The first of these, Body Balance for a Healthy Heart, has just hit the shelves and we’re delighted to be stocking it in Only Natural.
My impression from speaking to Stephen is that David is more than passionate about his formulas, taking as long as it takes to get the right nutrients, in the right forms and dosages, in the right ratios and from the right sources for optimum benefits! Body Balance for a Healthy Heart is the result of long years of clinical practice and three years of product research.
According to the Company website “Most cardiovascular problems are created by one or all of three elements: blocking of arteries, stiffening of blood vessels and blood thickening. The ingredients of our “Healthy Heart” product have been specifically chosen and blended to combat these three elements.” Interestingly, although cardiac health is the main focus of Healthy Heart it has also been found to benefit sports/athletic performance as well as mood and clarity of mind.
It has a very comprehensive list of ingredients so I’ll just touch on some of the main ones here. See celticnutrition.ie for the full picture including testimonials.

Healthy Heart Naturally – more than COQ10 and Fish Oils Supplements?

As Ireland continues on the road to becoming Europe’s most obese nation avoidable deaths and diminished quality of life due to heart disease are still part of our health climate. Better heart health is achievable through lifestyle choices and, where applicable, preventative and remedial supplementation. Coronary heart disease involves damage and narrowing of arteries and veins resulting in the heart having a more difficult job to fulfill its function of pumping blood around the body resulting in an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Firstly reduce your exposure to the risk factors that predispose to heart disease. These include being overweight, smoking, excessive stress, insufficient exercise, raised cholesterol and diabetes.

A heart healthy diet includes lots of whole grains and vegetables, healthy fats from fish and vegetable sources, soluble fibre to both regulate the digestion and reduce cholesterol (oats and oat products like oat bran and oatcakes come to mind here) and heart healthy herbs such as garlic and turmeric.
Hawthorn is a very effective and quick acting remedy for high blood pressure.
If elevated cholesterol is a problem due to lifestyle or hereditary causes Red Yeast Rice (taken with COQ10 which is sometimes included in the supplement), Plant Sterol tablets (Irish made brand Zerochol comes to mind) and Soya Lecithin can all be beneficial.
