Years ago my chiropractor tested me with several things to help relieve problems that we thought may have to do with a heart problem that came up with medical doctor testing. Cardio Plus tested out to be the best! Now, when I feel a problem coming on I take a Cardio Plus, chewing and swallowing. Then I follow with sucking one. Before the second is gone, my pain or discomfort is gone! I don't like to be without Cardio Plus!!!!

This is a very good whole food supplement for heart re-building, and care. My husband takes it very often. Whole food supplements are far superior than the synthetic-type vitamins, however, the cost is greater. I would say the cost difference is the difference for optimal health goals, between organic food, and non-organic food. This should be self-explanatory for folks who are striving to regain, or maintain a healthy life-style.

I got Cardio-Plus on the recommendation of a friend who's been taking it for years. I'd had a heart attack and since these have helped his heart stay healthier than any drug all this while, I added it to my daily routine, Been 3 years . . . so far so good.
