A new and innovative formula has hit the market, this time it is targeted towards “healthy” cholesterol-HDL. HDL is responsible for transporting cholesterol from the blood to the liver for reuse or removal. Over time, HDL loses its function. This happens because of high inflammation, oxidative stress, and blood sugar. Preserving the functionality of HDL is important for maintaining healthy blood vessels and immunity.
CardioLux HDL contains a blend of pomegranate, lycopene, and quercetin. These are all colored molecules called flavonoids that showed to increase paraoxonase. This enzyme helps maintain ideal HDL activity and lower inflammation. It also acts as an antioxidant which helps clear out harmful molecules.
