Basic Cardio Support provides a powerful formula for those seeking to optimize the multiple mechanisms of cardiovascular and metabolic health. The powerful combination of berberine and alpha lipoic acid (ALA) helps maintain heart function, metabolism, antioxidant status, and lipid and glucose levels. Among their numerous benefits, berberine and ALA activate the master metabolic switch, adenosine mono-phosphate kinase (AMPK). Activation of these powerful metabolic enzymes triggers a variety of genes that help improve metabolism, stabilize mitochondria, and enhance insulin sensitivity. Clinical trials demonstrate that berberine administration supports cardiometabolic health by maintaining healthy glucose level, supporting normal LDL levels and optimizing metabolism. ALA is a well known, potent antioxidant that scavenges free radicals and helps regenerate vitamin C, vitamin E and glutathione. Several studies have demonstrated that ALA supports normal glucose levels as well as maintaining healthy blood vessel and circulatory health.
