Did you know that omega 3 fatty acids, nattokinase, nitric oxide, and CoQ10 promote heart health? Here’s how:

• Omega 3- fatty acids: Omega-3 fatty acids support heart health by reducing inflammation, lowering triglyceride levels, and improving overall cardiovascular function.

• Nattokinase: Nattokinase supports heart health by promoting healthy blood flow and reducing the risk of blood clots.

• Nitric Oxide: Nitric oxide supports heart health by relaxing blood vessels and improving circulation.

• CoQ10: CoQ10 aids in energy production within heart cells, reducing oxidative stress, and improving overall cardiac function. People with healthy hearts have higher CoQ10 levels. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
