Posted by Michael T. Murray, N.D on 11/20/2014 to Heart Health
Each day the human heart beats about 100,000 times and pumps up to 5,000 gallons of fluid. In an average lifetime, the heart will beat 2.5 billion times and pump 146 million gallons of blood. That’s a lot of work! And, in order for your heart to do this work it needs sufficient levels of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10).

Getting to the Heart of Cardio

Posted by Vitamin Discount Center on 2/1/2014 to Exercise
Exercise can be broken down into two categories: aerobic (with oxygen) and anaerobic (without oxygen). Anaerobic exercise uses a large amount of oxygen in a short amount of time and leaves you out of breath quickly. It is referred to as “without oxygen” because the exercise you are performing uses the oxygen your body already has stored. This form of exercise includes activities such as lifting weights or sprinting, and is predominately used to build speed and strength. Aerobic exercise, also known as cardiovascular exercise, lasts an extended period of time and stimulates the heart and lungs in order to continuously pump oxygenated blood through the body, which is then used to fuel the ongoing activity.
