Iv And Supportive Treatments For Cardiovascular Disease (CVD)
Treatment and improvement of cardio vascular disease (CVD) signs, symptoms and blood parameters include, among other factors, diet, pharmaceuticals, IV and oral nutrient therapy, exercise and lifestyle.
IV Nutrient Therapy consists of IV magnesium to assist in preventing atrial fibrillation during coronary bypass graft procedures.
IV Potassium is administered to provide solution balance and mineral replacement.
Taurine is a sulfur containing organic acid and plays a major role in the normal functioning of electrically excitable tissues Taurine is effective for arrhythmia, cardiomyopathy, congestive heart failure, mitral valve prolapse, and cholesterol reduction. Magnesium and taurine are highly complementary.
Arginine centers on its role as a precursor to the neurotransmitter nitric oxide (NO). Arginine is the sole nitrogen source for nitric oxide (NO) synthesis. NO is the lightest and smallest molecule and it helps to regulate the dilation and constriction of small blood vessels. NO synthase is inhibited by many of the toxic metals.
Carnitine and Taurine are both essential for cardiovascular health, and especially for vegetarians, as meat is the main food source for both nutrients. Carnitine is concentrated in the heart more than in any other organ. Carnitine has the ability to increase fat oxidation; the heart utilizes fat oxidation extensively for energy production. Carnitine is also useful to lower triglycerides Carnitine is an important conditionally essential nutrient for the heart. Both carnitine and taurine are synthesized, not derived from animal sources, so are suitable for vegans.
