1.3g of plant sterols included in Cardioace® Plus
The Cardioace® Plus formulation includes 1.3g of Plant Sterols. The latest scientific research indicates that these Plant Sterols contribute to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels¹.
The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of at least 0.8 g of Plant Sterols.
Resveratrol included in Cardioace® Plus formulation
Cardioace® Plus contains a natural compound called Resveratrol, a phytochemical found in red grape skins which may be partly responsible for the health benefit attributed to red wine. Resveratrol may contribute to cardiovascular health.
Omega-3 fish oils included in Cardioace® Plus
The Cardioace® Plus formulation includes omega-3 fish oil, a rich source of EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid). DHA & EPA contribute to the normal function of the heart².
The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg of EPA and DHA.
Cardioace® Plus formulation includes powerful antioxidants.
Antioxidants like zinc, selenium, vitamins E and C contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

As well as thiamin (vit. B1) which contributes to the normal function of the heart, vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid contribute to normal homocysteine metabolism. Analysis has revealed that high levels of homocysteine are a strong independent factor in heart health , accounting for as much as 10% of the combined influence of all known factors in heart health³. Vitamin B12 and folic acid also contribute to normal red blood cell formation.

Cardioace® Plus FAQ
Cardioace® Plus has been scientifically developed on the basis of extensive worldwide research to safeguard your diet and with specific nutrients such as thiamin (vit. B1), Garlic Extract and Plant Sterols, which contribute to the normal function of the heart, normal circulation and normal blood cholesterol levels respectively. Whilst most people know that stopping smoking and regular exercise are essential to health, other simple measures can also help you maintain normal heart function. Numerous scientific studies have implicated dietary factors in the body's maintenance of normal heart function, normal circulation and normal blood cholesterol levels.
Cardioace® Plus combines the special ingredients of Cardioace® original, plus new advanced ingredients such as 1.3g plant sterols (per 3 capsules), resveratrol, Co Q10 and Lycopene.[Top]
Cardioace® Plus is recommended for both men and women as a nutritional safeguard to help maintain all round health as well as providing specific nutrients such as thiamine (vit.

We do not make such a claim. Cholesterol levels are affected by many factors, both genetic and dietary. Cardioace® Plus contains a combination of synergistic nutrients such as 1.3g of Plant Sterols that contribute to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels . Alongside Cardioace®, eating a healthy, low fat balanced diet, can help to maintain normal cholesterol levels.

Generally, Cardioace® Plus may be used alongside medications because it contains only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals, and is free from any drugs and hormones, however for specific advice on taking Cardioace® with prescribed medication, we recommend you should contact your doctor or pharmacist first.
Always read the product directions before use. Do not exceed the recommended intake. As with other food supplements seek professional advice before using if you suffer from food allergies, and consult your doctor or pharmacist if you have an underlying medical condition (e.g. diabetes, epilepsy, hyperthyroidism), or if on medication. Vitamin supplements are not intended to treat or prevent any disease. Food supplements must not replace a balanced and varied diet, and a healthy lifestyle. [Top]
Cardioace® Plus contains 60 special premium Licaps capsules per pack. [Top]
Two to three capsules per day are recommended with or immediately after your main meal, with water or a cold drink. Cardioace® Plus capsules should not be chewed. Three capsules per day are ideally recommended, especially during the first months of use. Do not exceed the recommended intake. Taking the capsule with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients, and can reduce the chance of mild nausea, which is sometimes experienced if multivitamins are taken on an empty stomach. Always ensure that Cardioace® Plus is taken with plenty of liquid to wash the capsule down, and not hot drinks like tea or coffee as this may cause the capsule to disintegrate too early. [Top]
Cardioace® Plus has no known side effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended capsule intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately. Cardioace® incorporates a natural orange oil OdourMask™ and is made with the advanced Licaps technology to help prevent any garlic, fish oil odour, or after taste. [Top]
We would expect the beneficial effects of the nutrients in Cardioace® Plus to build over several months. There is no maximum length of time over which Cardioace® Plus may be used. A regular intake is recommended.[Top]
Calcium and magnesium are essential minerals, which also play a role in normal muscle function including the heart muscle. However they are not included in the Cardioace® Plus formula, since it is not possible to include the right amount within the capsules. Rather than including just a token amount of calcium and magnesium, Cardioace® Plus has therefore been designed so that it can be used with Vitabiotics' Osteocare® tablets or liquid. [Top]
Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively, trying different methods, and hope that our tips will help you swallow tablets with ease.
The usual advice for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets, is to break the tablets into 2-3 pieces, before swallowing with plenty of liquid. For capsules (which contain liquid), and in cases where people have more difficulty in swallowing tablets we recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. We hope these tips are of help.[Top]
Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the NRV, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the NRV. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.
The Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the NRV, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% NRV.
All Vitabiotics products has been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.
Vitabiotics avoids 'mega dose’ levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect; an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.[Top]
