There's no doubt about it-people with heart disease lack energy. The heart needs a large amount of oxygenated blood flow to continuously meet it huge energy demands. That's where the new triad of cardiac health comes in-CoQ10, carnitine, and ribose. The synergistic combination of these energy-supplying nutrients maximizes the amount of oxygen that the heart and skeletal muscle can extract from the blood by accelerating the rate at which cells convert nutrients into energy. In "The Sinatra Solution", board-certified cardiologist Stephen T. Sinatra discusses the importance of energy metabolism on cardiovascular health and the positive impact these three energy-supplying nutrients have on the cardiovascular system. Dr.Sinatra knows that undestanding energy metabolism in the heart is critical to devising effective therapies for treating heart disease. He guides readers through he basics of energy metabolism and cardiac bioenergetics, and clearly explains the role of ribose, carintine, and CoQ10 in the body and specifically how they affect heart health. He presents concise and informative case histories and scientific studies that demonstrate the important contribution the supplemental use of these energy-supplying nutrients makes in the lives of people with heart disease every day. While the main focus of "The Sinatra Solution" is on improving heart health, this book also touches upon the positive effect the triad has on other diseases and disorders. Readers will learn how these miraculous nutrients work throughout the body, essentially charging up evry body cell to function at optimal capacity.
