“The Heartier Omega” contains more of the good and less of the bad–and is clinically researched to target HDL cholesterol levels without the flushing effects of niacin
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Jan 25, 2012 – Columbus, Ohio — Cardia 7™, the new Omega 7 nutritional supplement distributed by Goody Vitamins, is the result of years of scientific research to develop a pharmaceutical grade Omega 7 product with the intent to raise HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels without the flushing effects of niacin.
“It is well established that niacin helps reduce harmful cholesterol levels in the bloodstream,” explains Jeffrey Green, Pharm.D., Director of Research at Tersus Pharmaceuticals. “Unfortunately, the use of niacin is often met with uncomfortable side effects of flushing, leading a significant number of consumers to discontinue its use.”
“Cardia 7 has been clinically resarched to target HDLs, which act like the garbage trucks of your bloodstream,” says Dr. Green. “HDL transports cholesterol back to your liver, where it is metabolized and removed from your body. This is why HDL cholesterol is often referred to as ‘good’ or ‘protective’ cholesterol”.
Dubbed “The Heartier Omega”, Cardia 7 contains ultrapurified concentrations of palmitoleic acid. Research has shown that palmitoleic acid, which is completely natural, and derived from the monounsaturated (MUFA) family of fatty acids, can simultaneously: (1) increase HDL cholesterol (“good cholesterol”) (2) lower LDL cholesterol (“bad cholesterol”), and (3) lower triglycerides.
MUFAs have universally been shown to exhibit positive health benefits, whereas the saturated fatty acids are known to be the “bad actors” in the western diet.
For this reason, in addition to being the fist ultrapurified form of palmitoleic acid on the market, Cardia 7 has been especially formulated to remove palmitic acid, a saturated fatty acid which is contained in many foods that are high in saturated fats, such as processed meets, cheeses, and dairy products. It is well documented that palmitic acid has been shown to have toxic effects on pancreatic beta cells, leading to a greater chance for insulin resistance and subsequent development of diabetes.
Cardia 7 is currently sold directly at http://mendbynature.com, an ecommerce website that includes “The Goody Blog” which contains more information on the science behind Omega 7, as well as information and resources to increase greater awareness of the link between health and nutrition.
