- Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality among women globally and in the US
- Using this knowledge as the motivation, Healthy Extracts, through its wholly owned subsidiary BergaMet NA, developed HERHEART(TM)
- HERHEART is derived from the bergamot fruit, richly packed with polyphenols, and is formulated specifically for women to improve heart health and perimenopausal symptoms
- Polyphenols have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and are associated with improved heart health, as well as the prevention of some heart-related conditions
- Through HERHEART product, Healthy Extracts is playing a vital preventative role in the fight against cardiovascular disease among women
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in women globally – it was the cause of 39% of all deaths in 2019 (https://ibn.fm/Rrnq8). In the US, this situation is still the same, with the Center for Disease Control noting that it accounted for 21.8% of the mortality in women of all ages, races, and origins in 2017; higher than cancer (20.7%).
More dishearteningly, pregnancy predisposes women to cardiovascular disease even decades after delivery, mainly because of risk factors such as eclampsia, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, and preterm delivery (https://ibn.fm/wcUUF).
These reasons motivated BergaMet NA, a wholly owned subsidiary of Healthy Extracts (OTCQB: HYEX), to develop HERHEART(TM), an exclusive natural supplement scientifically formulated specifically for women to improve perimenopausal symptoms and cardiovascular health. It is derived from the Citrus Bergamot Superfruit(TM) (“bergamot”), which contains five unique antioxidant polyphenols in unusually concentrated amounts. It has a unique blend of flavonoids, a class of polyphenols, and glycosides.
Polyphenols have been the subject of many scientific studies that have established their antioxidant, anti-platelet, and anti-inflammatory properties. Polyphenols are known for inhibiting the oxidation of low-density lipoproteins (“LDL”), which are sometimes referred to as bad cholesterol, in effect lowering the risk of developing atherosclerosis, a cardiovascular disease.
They improve the function of endothelial cells – cells controlling the flow of fluid and substances into and out of cells from blood vessels – and increase high-density lipoproteins (“HDL”) or good cholesterol. Generally, polyphenols offer protection from hypertension, cancer, diabetes, aging, asthma, cardiovascular disease, and more (https://ibn.fm/25C57).
Being a rich source of these vital compounds, BergaMet NA has used bergamot to develop a broad range of dietary supplement products geared towards heart and cholesterol health, including SPORTSHEART, HEART & CHOLESTEROL PRO+, HERHEART, CHOLESTEROL COMMAND, and CLINICAL IMMUNE (https://ibn.fm/ofRER). Notably, HERHEART stands out because of its significance in the fight against the leading cause of death among women.
“HERHEART was specifically formulated to fill the void in heart health products specifically designed for women,” said Healthy Extracts President Duke Pitts in a press release announcing the results from a clinical study of HERHEART late last year. “Not only does HERHEART assist in metabolic syndrome challenges, but it also provides continued support for women as they mature. There is no other product that focuses directly on women, combines natural ingredients, and has the clinical studies to confirm its effectiveness.”
The 2020 clinical study revealed that HERHEART reduced mood swings and hot flashes by 40% and 60%, respectively, increased energy by 45%, and improved arousal, comfort, and desire by between 40% and 70%. It also reduced cholesterol levels, acted as an anti-inflammatory agent, and metabolized fat. These findings are consistent with many other independent studies, particularly regarding the role of polyphenols in reducing bad cholesterol, as well as their anti-inflammatory property (https://ibn.fm/3SBPY).
Dr. Nesochi Okeke-Igbokwe MD., M.S., a trusted and respected international health expert who recently joined HYEX’s Medical Advisory Board, recommends HERHEART to women as it addresses a host of health issues. “This is a supplement that is terrific for women of all ages and has a whole host of health benefits,” she stated. “What are these benefits? Studies have shown an improvement in heart health, cholesterol levels, mood, energy, and overall metabolism.”
While the fight against cardiovascular disease among women also requires the input of medical practitioners who need to be more proactive in providing timely evidence-based treatment (https://ibn.fm/AE744), Healthy Extracts, through its subsidiary’s HERHEART supplement, is playing a key preventative role.
