The number one killer in the US -- heart attacks -- is no longer best predicted by cholesterol or triglycerides, but by chronic inflammation measured by C-reactive protein (CRP).
Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) January 08, 2013
Cardia 7, a purified Omega 7 supplement that has been clinically shown to combat inflammation and heart disease, has launched ‘The Campaign for Heart Health’ to (1) increase awareness about the dangers of chronic inflammation and heart disease, and (2) build a community of thought leaders in the field of nutrition and heart health who’ll offer tips that average Americans can use to get and stay healthy.
According to many of the country’s top cardiologists, the number one killer in the US -- heart attacks -- is no longer best predicted by cholesterol or triglycerides, but by chronic inflammation measured by C-reactive protein (CRP). It’s estimated that 2,200 people die every day from cardiovascular disease, and half of all heart attack victims who have low cholesterol levels never knew they were at risk.
Cardia 7 is a nutritional supplement that contains high concentrations of ultra purified Omega 7, which has been clinically shown to reduce chronic inflammation measured by C-reactive protein levels. Drs. Oz & Roizen have called it a medical breakthrough, and Dr. Mike is taking 210 mg per day.
According to the American Heart Association, people with high CRP are twice as likely to suffer cardiac arrest as those with low levels. “This makes C-reactive protein the most important cardiovascular risk factor we have for men and women over age 50—a more important factor than age, family history, blood pressure, cholesterol, and/or whether you smoke,” says Roizen.
The Campaign for Heart Health is very timely, because as Dr. Michael Roizen, YOU Doc and best-selling author has affirmed: ”$1.5 trillion per year of healthcare spending is waste. This could have a huge benefit for our populations as a whole because metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, and diabetes are big things we need to tackle for us to be more competitive for jobs, and the United States to be more competitive as a society."

Cardia 7 contains Provinal™, which is manufactured by Tersus Pharmaceuticals. Founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 2010, Tersus was recipient of Therapeutic Discovery Grant for Ground Breaking Medical Research in 2010. Contains Provinal™ Purified Omega 7 fatty acids are purified to express high levels (50% and upwards) of palmitoleic acid (C16:1n7). Future concentrations are projected to be 90% or more. Provinal™ has been especially formulated to remove palmitic acid, a saturated fatty acid that has been shown to have toxic effects on pancreatic beta cells (the cells responsible for secreting insulin), leading to a greater chance for insulin resistance and subsequent development of diabetes.
