Ortho Heart - green coffee bean, theanine, garlic, hibiscus and vitamin C | AOR
AOR Ortho•Heart combines garlic, used in herbal medicine, with other ingredients that help reduce elevated blood lipid levels and maintain cardiovascular health. Ortho Heart also helps to temporarily promote relaxation.
• provides nutrients and plant extracts that promote vascular health
• maintains healthy blood pressure
• helps to reduce blood lipid levels
• a unique heart support formula exclusively from AOR
Cardiovascular health is the sum of the health of many different body functions: blood lipids, blood pressure, vascular health, heart muscle health, and electrical function, to name a few. Ortho Heart is designed to promote cardiovascular health through multiple mechanisms.
Garlic extract helps to balance blood lipids and cholesterol, while L-theanine promotes relaxation, stress relief and quality sleep – all of which can have a beneficial influence on blood pressure. Chlorogenic acid from green coffee bean extract supports weight management and has been shown to help lower blood pressure. Nitric oxide improves blood vessel function and blood flow by dilating blood vessels and improving their flexibility – potassium nitrate and vitamin C support the production of this important nutrient. Lastly, studies support the ability of hibiscus to promote healthy blood pressure. This is key since high blood pressure, also known as the silent killer, tends not to produce symptoms until it is severe.
Those with a family history of blood pressure or cholesterol problems, or those looking to support their heart health and blood pressure naturally can benefit from taking Ortho Heart.
Before green coffee bean extract was known for weight loss, AOR’s heart and blood pressure health formula contained this now famous extract.
Potassium nitrate, mixed vegetable concentrate and Vitamin C work together to yield a high production of nitric oxide in the body, higher than any nitrate or nitric oxide supplement on the market.
L-Theanine helps produce GABA in the body, reduces anxiety and may improve sleep, which are important factors in heart health.
Ortho Heart features Hibiscus, whose heart health benefits are not yet well known, as well as the age-old remedy of garlic to maintain good heart health.
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

Heart disease: what are the differences between men and women?
Past week there was attention for new documentary called "De slag om het vrouwenhart", made by Hella de Jong, in which she relates about her quest for heart health. She suspected health problems, but wasn't sure why. After having been told her problems were psychosomatic, caused by her parents' traumatic WWII experiences, she wasn't satisfied and kept pushing for more research. Finally she got a massive heart attack while perfoming a stress test in the hospital.
This interview sent me on an immediate flashback to 1985, when my mom felt ill enough to visit the hopital after what was probably a minor heart attack. Her complaints weren't taken very seriously, yet they admitted her to hospital, though without being tied to a heart monitor. It was here she died that same day in the presence of my brother. When listening to Hella's story it seems there hasn't changed much in 35 years.
For a very long time, women were not taken into consideration when research was conducted on heart diseasae. Nor were they taken seriously when they went to their doctors with health complaints. Yet, among women, heart disease has also become the leading cause of death.
Determining heart disease risk in women
Women and men share many heart disease risk factors, but recent studies are showing what previous male-focused studies have not shown: Women also have their own unique heart disease risk factors.
Traditional risk factors common to both women and men:
- high blood pressure
- family history
- metabolic syndrome – the co-existence of high blood pressure, obesity, and high glucose and triglyceride levels
- high levels of C-reactive protein – a sign of inflammatory disease that can occur along with other cardiovascular risk factors
Some risk factors that relate specifically to women or that can affect women disproportionately include:
- relatively high testosterone levels prior to menopause
- increasing hypertension during menopause
- autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis – more common in women than in men
- stress and depression are more common among women
- low risk factor awareness: lack of recognition of many of the above conditions as risk factors for heart disease is a risk factor in itself
Pets and your health
The strength of the human animal bond has been known for a long time, but scientific studies were only conducted fairly recently.
The very first study was published only about 40 years ago when 2 American psychology researchers measured what happens physically when a person pets a friendly and familiar dog. They found that the person's blood pressure lowered, heart rate slowed, breathing became more regular and muscle tension relaxed-all of which are signs of reduced stress.
Protect your body against the dangers of agingAntioxidants, everyone has heard of them, but only a few know what they really are and what they do.
Antioxidants are present in fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as whole grains, where they protect the plant against insects. Fruits and vegetables that have bright, distinctive (dark) colors, have the highest amount of antioxidants, such as the very well known red tomatoes, blueberries, purple grapes, green (and purple!) kale, yellow corn and orange carrots.
