Cardio-C by Pauling Therapy is a drink mix that contains vitamin C, l-lysine, and l-proline. L-lysine is beneficial for reducing cold sores, reducing anxiety, and stimulating cells that are responsible for creating new bone tissue. (Annigan, N.d.) L-proline is useful for breaking down proteins for utilization in cells that are healthy. Collagen is about fifteen percent proline so having a good amount of proline is helpful in treating conditions such as osteoarthritis, tissue sprains, and chronic back pain. (Wickham, 2017)
The main ingredient in this product is vitamin C. Vitamin C aids in reducing the body’s blood pressure which is beneficial because people with hypertension are at an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Another health benefit of vitamin C is ramping up immunity by the stimulation of white blood vessels in the body. (Organic Facts, 2017) Overall, vitamin C is beneficial for preventing heart disease as well as other heart related issues. Cardio-C is available in gram form; the drink mix is beneficial for those who find it hard to swallow tablets or pills. It supports normal cardiovascular function. The formula may be added and mixed into water or juice; 1-3 scoops daily is the recommended dosage for Cardio-C.
