Natura Vitalis has developed the product "heart vitamins" to support the heart in its performance and at the same time to relieve it.

Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death in Germany and, according to the Robert Koch Institute, account for about 40 percent of all deaths. In addition, they are associated with considerable individual consequences of illness and cause high societal medical costs. It goes on to say: "The most important risk factors for cardiovascular diseases that can be influenced are cardiometabolic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus, lipometabolic disorders and obesity, as well as health-damaging behaviours such as smoking, physical inactivity and an unhealthy diet.

The advantage: these risk factors can be influenced by health-conscious behaviour and drug therapies and open up a great potential for prevention of cardiovascular diseases. "In addition, there are our own possibilities to promote the daily peak performance of the heart. On average, it beats around 100,000 times every day and keeps all our bodily functions going. The heart pumps 7000 litres of blood through the vascular system every day, supplying organs and muscles with oxygen and nutrients. We can support this active central organ with natural nutrients that keep the more than six billion highly specialised heart muscle cells in good spirits and, above all, in the right rhythm," says Frank Felte, founder and owner of Natura Vitalis, one of the best-known and leading manufacturers of natural vital substances and food supplements in Germany (www.naturavitalis.de). The company is based in Essen and places the highest value on the continuous further and new development of health products on a scientific basis.

In order to support the heart in its performance and at the same time to relieve it, Natura Vitalis developed the special product "heart vitamins" several years ago. It contains a special nutrient formula that keeps our heart in good spirits. "The product contains a variety of natural vital substances. Just as our body needs many nutrients for propulsion, our heart must also have enough energy to pump, pump and pump," emphasises Frank Felte and points out some special ingredients.

First and foremost, the product contains the mineral potassium. Potassium is the vital substance that ensures that the heartbeat is regular and does not "stumble", as potassium contributes to normal muscle function. Furthermore, potassium contributes to the maintenance of normal blood pressure and promotes muscle function. If this immensely important mineral is lacking, it can lead to health disorders of the normal heart rate as well as the normal blood pressure.

Another important heart vitamin is folic acid. Folic acid, a vitamin from the B group, contributes to normal blood formation. Since folic acid is the basic prerequisite for sufficient and healthy blood to flow through the circulatory system, this vitamin cannot and should not be missing from the recipe, Frank Felte points out. Of course, the product also contains vitamin K. It contributes to normal blood clotting, for example. Whether and to what extent vitamin K has other important functions with regard to heart health is currently still being researched by scientists. However, the research results so far are so exciting that it was a "must" for Natura Vitalis to include this exciting vitamin in the recipe.

"Of course, we also looked around in exotic climes to make the best substances in our product for heart health available to the general public. Japanese knotweed is a highly exciting plant for our entire cardiovascular system, as its main active ingredient is the legendary resveratrol. Resveratrol, in turn, is a secondary plant substance found mainly in grapes and red wine," says Frank Felte. Certain studies point to a connection between moderate red wine consumption and heart health. Natura Vitalis builds on this. "But we wanted to make this effect possible without the unhealthy side effects of alcohol. For this, Japanese knotweed is ideal."
