Cardio Helper™ is a nutritional formula to support circulation, strengthen the cardiovascular system, and promote healthy fluid balance especially in legs. It contains the highest quality forms of resveratrol, grape seed extract, hawthorn berry, and horse chestnut.*
Cardio Helper™ is designed to support healthy function of the cardiovascular system while at the same time protecting and strengthening the heart. By enhancing circulation, oxygen is more readily transported and made available to cells. This supports healthy blood pressure and effective delivery of nutrition to cells.*
- Therapeutic amounts of resveratrol. Cardio Helper contains 100mg resveratrol per capsule. Many other products contain only 2mg – 20mg.
- Resveratrol is the healthy component of red wine. One capsule of Cardio Helper provides the resveratrol equivalent found in 40 bottles of red wine.
- High quality grape seed extract flavonoids – 100mg per capsule, 92% OPC
- Hawthorn berry and horse chestnut in standardized extract form. Only the most active components.
Serving Size: 2 capsules
Directions: Take 2 capsules, up to 3 times per day.

Resveratrol is found in some red wines and is believed to be a key reason for the French paradox, wherein a higher level of saturated fat is consumed and heart health is maintained. Research shows that resveratrol protects against some metabolic stressors associated with a high fat diet.* Just one capsule of Cardio Helper™ provides the resveratrol equivalent found in 40 bottles of red wine!
Resveratrol acts through a variety of natural mechanisms to enhance health, and much research points to these mechanisms in an anti-aging context similar to the beneficial effects seen in calorie restriction (apparently by activating a gene called SIRT1).*
Resveratrol is a potent cardiovascular antioxidant, working synergistically as part of the antioxidant network. It has been shown to enhance the function of an important cellular antioxidant enzyme called MnSOD, which helps keep mitochondria in good working order to make energy more efficiently while protecting against damage. It also helps modulate NF-kappaB, the key stress and inflammation gene signal within a cell.*
Grape Seed Extract
We use a very high quality grape seed extract that has a high concentration of active polyphenols with significant antioxidant properties. Grape seed extract is a flavonoid that has a high affinity for collagen structures, including those of your arteries and heart. It is known to enhance the structural integrity of any tissue, helping to offset physical wear and tear in the body. It even helps strengthen vein health and skin structure.*
Grape seed extracts help turn on the enzyme nitric oxide (NO) synthase, in turn stimulating the production of friendly eNOS that relaxes your circulatory systems and supports healthy blood pressure function. Like resveratrol, grape seed extract also modulate NF-kappaB, reducing inflammatory wear and tear.*
Hawthorn berry is rich in heart-friendly flavonoids and has been used traditionally as a cardiovascular tonic. The hawthorn berry fruit has an affinity for collagen structures of the heart, blood vessels, and the endothelial lining of the circulatory system. This aspect of nutritional support should be thought of as nourishment for the structure of the cardiovascular system.*
Hawthorn berry also helps the circulatory system manage stress. During times of circulatory stress immune cells may release an enzyme called human neutrophil elastase (HNE). While this is a normal enzyme, too much of it can induce wear and tear. Hawthorn berry helps to modulate the release of HNE, thereby supporting cardiovascular health.*
Hawthorn berries interact in a variety of ways in the circulatory system supporting the pumping action of the heart, heart rhythms, heart rate, and platelet function.* Hawthorn berry is an impressive fruit extract for cardiovascular support.*
Horse Chestnut Extract
Horse chestnut extract has been shown to help strengthen the veins and support circulation in the legs, helping to move fluids in the normal manner and improve vein health.*
Horse chestnut extract works in multiple ways to support the health of your capillaries and veins. It is a direct tonic substance for veins and valves, a source of nourishment that enhances their structure. It has been shown to close small gaps in veins that allow fluid leakage that contributes to edema. In addition to its structural support for veins and valves it has a regulating function relating to both capillaries and veins that involves ion channels and the flow of calcium in particular. Its actions are unique and fascinating.*
