Cardioace Original FAQ
Why has Cardioace been developed?
Cardioace has been scientifically developed on the basis of extensive worldwide research with specific nutrients such as thiamin (vit. B1), which contribute to the normal function of the heart. Whilst most people know that stopping smoking and regular exercise are essential to health, other simple measures can also help ensure you maintain normal heart health. Numerous scientific studies have implicated dietary factors in the body's maintenance of the cardiovascular system and a healthy circulation.
Cardioace combines the ingredients from many popular products all in a single supplement.
When is Cardioace recommended?
Cardioace is recommended for both men and women as a nutritional safeguard. Cardioace helps maintain all round health as well as providing specific nutrients such as thiamin (vit. B1) which contributes to the normal function of the heart plus Garlic Extract which contributes to normal circulation. Cardioace may also be suitable for use by those who have a special interest in looking after their heart.
Will Cardioace help to reduce cholesterol levels?
We do not make such a claim. Cholesterol levels are affected by many factors, both genetic and dietary. Cardioace contains a combination of nutrients to help maintain all round heart health including thiamin (vit. B1), which contribute to the normal function of the heart. Alongside Cardioace, eating a healthy, low fat balanced diet, can assist with heart health. Also available in the Cardioace range is Cardioace Plus with all the benefits of Cardioace plus 1.3g of Plant Sterols which contribute to normal blood cholesterol levels .
Can Cardioace be used simultaneously with medications?
Generally, Cardioace 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 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. Do not take if you are allergic to soya.
How many tablets does one pack of Cardioace Original contain?
Cardioace contains 30 tablets per pack (1 month's supply).
How and when should Cardioace be used?
One tablet per day is recommended with or immediately after your main meal, with water or a cold drink. Cardioace tablets should not be chewed. Do not exceed the recommended intake. Taking the tablet 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 is taken with plenty of liquid to wash the tablet down.
Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Cardioace?
Cardioace has no known side effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended tablet intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately.
Is Cardioace suitable for Vegetarians?
Cardioace Original now comes in a new advanced formula that is suitable for Vegetarians. Cardioace uses vegetarian flaxseed oil which contains omega-3 essential fatty acids, instead of fish oil.

Need help swallowing a tablet or capsule?
Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively and 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 to swallow the chewed food and so the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively, the tablets may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies.
How long does it take to experience any benefit?
Results vary amongst individuals, but in most cases we would expect the beneficial effects of the vitamins and minerals in Cardioace to build over several weeks. There is no maximum length of time over which Cardioace may be used. A regular intake is recommended.
Is Cardioace recommended with any other Vitabiotics product(s)?
Calcium is an essential mineral, which contributes to normal muscle function. However it is not included in the Cardioace formula, since it is not possible to include the right amount within the tablets. Rather than including just a token amount of calcium, Cardioace has therefore been designed so that it can be used with Vitabiotics' Osteocare tablets or liquid. For those who wish to consume higher levels of Omega-3 fatty acids it is possible to also take Ultra Omega -3 capsules or liquid or try Cardioace Plus.
Difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules is fairly common - do you have any advice?
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.
Some Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) levels are above 100%, is this safe?
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 be 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 have 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.
