Supplements We Recommend for Heart Health

Pathway CARDIO SUPPORT is a comprehensive formula designed to support the heart and vascular system. Key heart-healthy nutrients include folic acid, vitamins B-12 and B-6, green tea extract, L-carnitine, grape seed extract, hawthorn, magnesium, horse chestnut, soy isoflavone extract, vitamin E, vitamin C, and niacin.

Pathway CoQ-10 PLUS provides Coenzyme Q-10, an important nutrient involved in manufacturing energy in the body. Studies have shown that supplementing with CoQ-10 can help support healthy blood pressure levels, healthy cholesterol levels, and vascular health. Since CoQ-10 is a fat-soluble nutrient, absorption can be enhanced by combining it with healthy fats like rice bran oil, as we have done in our Pathway CoQ-10 PLUS formula.

Pathway GARLIC TABS are made from naturally grown, hand peeled, premium Chinese garlic, processed to preserve allicin, the key component responsible for garlic's cardiovascular benefits. Garlic has a long history of use as both a food and medicine throughout the world, and has been the subject of much scientific research. Studies support garlic as an effective agent in lowering blood pressure and improving circulation.
