Plant Sterols & Grape Seed Extract to the Rescue!
Cardiovascular health is vital to everyone, regardless of age, gender, or current medical conditions. However, most people do not worry about their heart health until they have already started developing cardiovascular problems.
Because of this, we have developed Cardio Care Essentials™ – an all-natural, multi-nutritional formula that has many of the same benefits as prescription drugs, but without the potentially harmful side effects. Try Cardio Care Essentials™ today to begin your path toward maintaining a healthy heart.
Cardio-Aid™ Plant Sterol Esters –
Plant sterol esters are natural compounds found in fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain products that naturally lower bad cholesterol. CardioAid™ is backed by human clinical studies that showed when including 800mgs of CardioAid™ per day, it did lower LDL (bad) cholesterol in the test subjects.
As a result, the FDA allows the following claim for CardioAid™ to be made.
“Intake of at least 400mgs per serving of CardioAid™ plant sterols, eaten twice a day for a total daily intake of at least 800mgs, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. Revv Cardio Care Essentials™ supplies 400mgs of plant sterols per serving or 800mgs per day over the recommended two doses.”
Sterols Fight Cholesterol and Win
Because plant sterols are structurally like cholesterol, they block cholesterol absorption at the small intestine surface. Unabsorbed cholesterol and plant sterols are eliminated from the body.
Grape Seed Extract (95% proanthocyanins) –
Grapes are a fruit that have been grown worldwide and used for wine making since the days of the ancient Greeks and Romans. It was not until the beginning of the 20th century that research began on the bioactive components of grape seeds. It was at this time that nutritional scientists began to isolate and identify what we now know as phytochemical compounds.
One of these compounds, proanthocyanins, were shown to have potent free radical scavenging effects. What are free radicals? They are little invaders that result from poor eating and lifestyle habits. Too many free radicals and they start to attack and kill healthy cells. Many health experts agree excessive free radicals lead to many diseases, including coronary artery disease and cancer.
Other research suggests that proanthocyanin compounds exhibit pharmacological properties against oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is believed to be the mechanism responsible for development of prehypertension. Prehypertension being the pre-condition to high blood pressure, if not managed.
In a UC Davis human clinical trial patients were given 300mgs of a high-quality grape seed extract every day for one month. The average drop in systolic pressure was twelve millimeters. The average drop in diastolic pressure was eight millimeters. The study added that in addition to the lowered blood pressure numbers the test group had also reduced oxidized LDL (bad) cholesterol levels.
Revv Cardio Care Essentials™ provides 150mgs of grape seed extract per serving or 300mgs per day over the recommended two doses.

Heart Disease and Family History
According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the number one cause of death in America. To put that into perspective, COVID-19 has taken 800,000 lives over the last 2 years. Heart diseases in America take that many lives every year! This is 25% of all causes of death in the U.S.
The major contributors are high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Other major contributors are poor eating habits, obesity, and little physical activity.
Heart disease can cluster in families. About 1 out of 500 people inherit heart disease from their blood line. Thus, family medical history needs to be looked at to identify your risk.
Early detection and taking steps to control factors that put you at risk, can reduce your chance of developing heart disease.
Heart Disease and Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is the most common form and affects more than 34 million Americans according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC). A recent analysis showed most people with Type 2 diabetes are not managing the risk factors for heart disease.
In fact, less than 20% of adults with Type 2 diabetes have healthy levels of blood sugar, healthy blood pressure, and good cholesterol levels.
About Cholesterol –
Blood cholesterol is a fat-like substance made by your liver and is essential for good health. Your body needs it to make hormones and digest fatty foods. As a matter of fact, your liver produces all your bodies needs for blood cholesterol.
Therefore, health professionals recommend people make healthy eating choices by eating as little dietary cholesterol as possible. Top sources of dietary cholesterol are red meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, and dairy products.
As reported by the (CDC) – almost 4 in 10 American adults have poor cholesterol levels. What is even more alarming is most of them do not even know it. Poor cholesterol levels have no outward signs or symptoms. The only way you can know is to have it checked.
The image shows excessive Cholesterol (plaque) build up in an artery. As the plaque builds up it narrows the artery which blocks blood flow to the heart. This blockage can lead to chest pain (angina), shortness of breath, and a complete blockage can cause a heart attack.
About Blood Pressure –
Your blood pressure normally rises and falls throughout the day.
What is high blood pressure (hypertension)?
High blood pressure is also commonly called hypertension and is a condition where the blood pressure is higher than normal. Having blood pressure consistently above normal may result in a diagnosis of high blood pressure (or hypertension). Unfortunately, high blood pressure has no obvious signs or symptoms. Therefore, most people are unaware they have it.
What causes high blood pressure?
High blood pressure usually develops over time. It can result from unhealthy lifestyle choices, like not getting enough exercise. Other health conditions such as diabetes or being obese can also increase your risk of high blood pressure.
High blood pressure can seriously hurt important organs like your heart, brain, kidneys, and eyes. High blood pressure damages your arteries by making them less elastic, which decreases the flow of blood and oxygen to your heart.
High blood pressure can also cause the arteries that deliver blood and oxygen to the brain to burst, causing a stroke. Having high blood pressure during midlife has been linked to having less cognitive function and dementia later in life.
