Keeping the heart muscle cells in a good mood is an important task. The food supplement specialist Natura Vitalis has developed the product "heart vitamins" for this purpose.


Our heart is constantly doing hard work: on average, it beats around 100,000 times every day and keeps all our bodily functions going. The heart pumps 7,000 litres of blood through the vascular system every day, supplying organs and muscles with oxygen and nutrients. If the heart does not function properly, serious illnesses can result.


"For us, this hard work is completely normal and taken for granted - that's why we don't notice much of this high performance. But most people do not thank their heart for this work. Rather, they continuously expose it to stress and strain without thinking about the consequences. Nevertheless, this mega-active central organ naturally needs very special nutrients that keep the more than six billion highly specialised heart muscle cells in a good mood and, above all, in the right rhythm," says Natura Vitalis founder Frank Felte (www.naturavitalis.de). The company from Essen has long been considered one of the leading manufacturers of natural food supplements and places the highest value on continuous further and new developments 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 and is therefore a real 'health bomb'. Just as our body needs many nutrients for propulsion, our heart must also have enough energy to pump, pump and pump," emphasises Frank Felte, pointing out some special ingredients.


First and foremost, the product contains the mineral potassium. Potassium is namely the vital substance that ensures that the heartbeat takes place regularly 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 and blood pressure.


For Frank Felte, vitamins D and K are also of great importance. "Vitamin D, like potassium, contributes to the maintenance of normal muscle function. Accordingly, to ensure that our bodies have enough of this important heart muscle vitamin, we have included a significant amount of vitamin D in the product formulation. Another important heart vitamin is also folic acid. Folic acid, a vitamin from the B group, contributes to normal blood formation, among other things. 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. The product also contains vitamin K. It promotes 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.


"Of course, we have also looked around in exotic climes to make the best substances in our product for heart health accessible 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." Speaking of grapes: the OPC contained in the Natura Vitalis product is also found primarily in the seeds of grapes and belongs to the group of flavanols. It is certain that OPC is said to have an antioxidant effect, at least in connection with heart health.
