Cardiosterol fish oils in a sugar free honey base

By Mark Causon

Going back down memory lane, some of you may recall being forced to take a gulp of “what’s good for you”. In the past, the fish oil was pretty crude; nothing similar to what is being offered today in terms of quality and especially taste. Not to mention also, that back then, the benefits of the product were unfounded information. However nowadays science has shown that what was once a folk remedy, is very much a reality now. The introduction of the in-depth research on fish and other omega-3 oils, has brought a lot of excitement regarding the health benefits they have to offer.
Studies have shown that Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA+DHA) help fight and prevent cardiovascular disease and many other chronic diseases. In addition, it increases one’s energy level and ability to concentrate, whilst providing a greater resistance to common illnesses such as cold and flu. Moreover, it is said to help pregnant women avoid premature births, low birth weight and other complications.
These essential fatty acids are therefore vital to one’s health. However, the body does not produce omega-3 fatty acids, thus they must be provided in our daily diet. Fish oil has to be an essential element in everyone’s nutritional regime. Unfortunately, most people start taking health precautions when it is already too late. Ideally, prevention for future ailments should commence at an early stage in life and continue throughout.
When deciding on which product to take remember that there is a distinction between cod liver oil and other beneficial cold water fish oil. Cod liver oil is the most commonly renowned; however Salmon oil and Shark liver oil have been proven to contain superior benefits. Salmon and Shark liver oil is a natural food supplement that helps cardiovascular well being and lowers levels of bad cholesterol. This is due to the omega 3 fatty acids, which are an excellent source to boost up HDL (the Good cholesterol) in your blood. Omega-3 fatty acids in salmon and clupeidae oil, is a type of polyunsaturated fatty acids which can only be supplied by food sources.
If your difficulty is in digesting the fish oil or you just cannot tolerate the taste, there’s no need to worry because now there is the perfect solution. Alta Care Laboratoires – Paris, have launched the Cardiosterol Syrup, which is easily digested, having a very pleasant taste of blueberry. Yes, you read well, blueberry! The nasty taste of fish oil is masked by sugar free blueberry juice and sugar free honey.
Cardiosterol Syrup is a concentrate of Lecithin Soya and Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA + DHA), derived from shark liver oil, which is obtained for molecular characterization. The acids EPA and DHA contribute to regulating lipid metabolism, whereas the Omega-3 is indicated in cases of reduced intake from alimentation, of such fatty acids. Conversely, Soya lecithin contains several essential phospholipids required by every living cell in the human body. Soya lecithin breaks down cholesterol and fats in the blood, allowing them to be effectively utilized by the cells of the body. Soya lecithin found in the Cardiosterol Syrup by Alta Care Laboratoires – Paris, helps in the absorption of the fat soluble Vitamins A, D, E and K, and improves the health of the nervous system.
In addition to these vital contents, Cardiosterol is rich in Vitamin E, which is an antioxidant. This protects the cellular membrane and other body liposoluble parts such as cholesterol LDL from being damaged. Many studies have shown that a daily dose of Vitamin E helps in reducing the risk of heart attack.
Another product on the market offering the above mentioned benefits, is Liposterol by Laboratoires TEV (France). Liposterol are gelules which promote a natural cholesterol treatment.
The active ingredients of Alta Care’s Cardiosterol Syrup are in their fresh form. They are therefore more effective than capsules, since the chemical constituents are not altered during processing, compression, storage and distribution. Capsules lose most of their efficacy due to drying and compressing of the ingredients.
Every time you eat a tasty meal full of fat and cholesterol don’t forget your dose of Cardiosterol syrup.
Cardiosterol Capsules and Syrup are made in France and is available in all pharmacies. Phone on 21 31 21 51 for more information or ask the pharmacist of your choice.
