TORONTO, May 27, 2013 /CNW/ - Canadian-led research into the human microbiome—otherwise known as the 'gut'—has led to the discovery of a new, natural approach for cholesterol management. Cardioviva is a probiotic supplement that is clinically proven to reduce LDL ("bad") cholesterol and help maintain healthy cholesterol levels in adults. It comes at a time when 40% of Canadians have high blood cholesterol, a risk factor for heart disease. Currently, scientific and public health leaders around the world are putting significant effort into better understanding the microbiome, and Cardioviva represents a Canadian breakthrough in this field while illustrating an important new role for probiotics. Cardioviva is the first probiotic supplement that's been shown to move a recognized marker for disease (cholesterol), and it brings to light the fact that gut health can contribute to heart health.
