A number of animal health products, including coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), vitamin E, L-carnitine, taurine, potassium, and magnesium have generated positive research results in helping to maintain a healthy heart. In addition, various botanical substances can provide cardiac support.

Certain amino acids support good cardiac function. For example, supplementation with taurine to support healthy cardiac function in cats is well established, because unlike humans and dogs, cats are unable to synthesize taurine. L-carnitine promotes cellular energy production in the mitochondria and supports muscle metabolism, including the heart muscle. Supplementation with L-carnitine has been shown to improve appetite and exercise tolerance in dogs.

Maintaining a healthy level of antioxidants to balance oxidative stress is essential for all tissues of the body, including the heart. Vitamin E provides essential antioxidant activity in fat-soluble tissues.

Magnesium and potassium are necessary for healthy cardiac contractility and for maintaining a healthy heart rhythm; magnesium supports vascular smooth muscle tone. Deficiencies of these two minerals often occur concurrently; therefore, it is essential to replete both of them.

Botanicals in Bio-Cardio include Crataegus laevigata (hawthorn extract) and Terminalia arjuna (arjuna extract), both of which contribute to healthy heart muscle functioning. Eleutherococcus senticosus (eleuthero root extract), an adaptogen, is added to support physical stamina.
