You know the ION Profile is one of the best values in nutritional medicine. The Cardio/ION Profile makes it an even better value by adding cutting-edge risk markers for cardiovascular disease (CVD)!
Why should you order the Cardio/ION Profile?
Because 1 in 3 adults has some form of cardiovascular disease (2). The Cardio/ION identifies key nutritionally modifiable risk factors for CVD, including:
Fatty acid imbalances that lead to chronic inflammation, shown by current research to be one of the most probable causes of CVD
High fibrinogen that can make the blood more sticky or viscous, increasing the risk of clots
Homocysteine, increasingly recognized as an important risk factor for not only CVD, but stroke and dementia as well
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), a fat-soluble, vitamin-like substance in every human cell that is involved in key biochemical reactions that produce energy in cells, and it also acts as an antioxidant
Fasting insulin, an indicator of insulin resistance which often leads to metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and CVD
Sufficiency of antioxidant protection, shown in studies to help reduce fatty deposits on artery walls and limit cell damage that can lead to both CVD and cancer
Turnaround time: 12-18 days, 14 days average
