Healthy Heart

Omega-3 & Choline | Citrus & Strawberry Flavor

We formulated ConCordix Omega-3 & Choline Healthy Heart with 5 key nutrients to support a healthy cardiovascular system. Choline is an essential nutrient that plays in a role in cholesterol transportation in the liver. People with low choline diets may develop a fatty liver. Vitamins K2 and E support healthy blood vessels. Our sugar-free Smart Chews have a delicious flavor. There is no fishy taste or unpleasant fish reflux due to our patented technology. Our manufacturing significantly minimizes exposure to heat, maintaining nutrient integrity in omega-3 oils which are highly sensitive to oxidation. Furthermore, our packaging protects each dose from humidity, light and air oxidation until ready to be consumed.

Our ConCordix technology allows for high payloads, particularly oil-soluble nutrients. For example, one ConCordix Smart Chew can hold up to 750mg of marine oil. One can only imagine a sea of possibilities with ConCordix.

Enhanced absorption

Our patented dosage system packages lipid nutrients in billions of microscopic oil droplets that are stabilized in an emulsion. This technology increases lipid nutrient absorption by 44%. Our unique design is specific to ConCordix Smart Chews which allows the option of combining both lipid with water-soluble nutrients in one convenient dose.

Nutrient absorption

Our GI tract has multiple folds that contain pits which hold finger like projections called villi. These pits, folds, and villi increase the gut’s surface and are what allows for optimal nutrient absorption.

Likewise, mother nature strategically packages nutrients in foods to optimize their surface area. For instance, a piece of salmon contains evenly distributed microscopic oil droplets that significantly increases the surface area of the nutrients that are exposed to the gut.

We took a cue from nature and created a patented technology that packages lipid nutrients in microscopic oil droplets that are stabilized in an emulsion. This unique design is specific to our Smart Chews. You won’t find our patented emulsification system in any other delivery system in the market today.

Sugar-free & natural flavors

ConCordix Smart Chews utilize plant-based sweeteners which provide multiple health benefits. Our sugar-free flavor system addresses health concerns such as dental care, weight loss, and diabetes.

Nutrient stability & earth-friendly packaging

Our thoughtful packaging is made from sustainable material which is designed to effectively protect nutrients from oxidation. Cartons that house the aluminum blister packs are made from recycled material. The blister packs individually seal each Smart Chew, protecting each dose from humidity, light, and air oxidation with no exposure to the elements until ready to be consumed. Light-weight and convenient, our packaging is conducive to an active lifestyle.

Omega-3

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). These PUFAs can not be synthesized by the human body but has many health benefits. The health effects have been extensively documented and probably the most known effect of omega-3 PUFAs is to reduce the risk for cardiovascular diseases. There are also indications that omega-3 PUFAs may lower the risk for dementia and mitigate depression.

The most important omega-3 PUFAs in the human diet are:
1. Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)
2. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
3. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)

ALA is found in plants, including chia, flaxseed, hemp, and nuts. Plants contain of fibers that are difficult to digest for humans and can reduce absorption of essential bioactives. Some studies indicate that ALA has neuroprotective, anti-inflammatory, and antidepressant properties. The human body contains enzymes that convert ALA into DHA and EPA, however, the conversion rates are often very low with ranges between 1% to 20%.

High concentrations of EPA and DHA are found in fish and shellfish. EPA and DHA in fish oil are easily absorbed by the human body. It is known that these PUFAs have different effects.
For instance, EPA is metabolized to eicosanoids that regulate fundamental physiological processes such as cell division and growth, blood clotting, muscle activity, and the secretion of digestive juices and hormones. Eicosanoids derived from EPA may reduce certain inflammatory processes that can lead to heart attacks and strokes.
DHA is not involved in eicosanoid formation but is highly concentrated in the brain and involved in normal neurological development and functioning. Next to that, DHA is an important part of the retina and plays a role in visual development and normal eye function.

Choline

Choline is an essential vitamin-like nutrient involved in many physiological processes, including (liver) metabolism, lipid transport, cell reactions, and brain function. Choline was officially recognized as an essential nutrient by the Institute of Medicine in 1998.

Foods with the highest choline concentration are: chicken meat, salmon, eggs, wheat germ, and milk. Although the human body can synthesize choline itself, the amount that is produced is not sufficient to meet its essential requirements. The liver is dependent on choline to function properly by transporting liver fats, maintaining liver cell health, and normal blood concentrations of toxic compounds such as homocysteine by contributing to normal homocysteine metabolism.

Choline is needed to produce acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter for memory, mood, muscle control, and other brain and nervous system functions. Choline also plays important roles in modulating gene expression, cell membrane signalling, lipid transport and metabolism, and early brain development.

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has acknowledged the following beneficial effects as a basis for health claims:

• Choline contributes to the maintenance of normal liver function
• Choline contributes to normal homocysteine metabolism
• Choline contributes to normal lipid metabolism

Vitux AS has provided a white paper about the beneficial effects of choline and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

Vitamin K

Vitamin K is a group of structurally similar fat-soluble vitamins that are required for the complete synthesis of proteins involved in blood coagulation, and for controlling binding of calcium in the bones and other tissues. Without vitamin K, blood coagulation is seriously impaired, and uncontrolled bleeding occurs. Preliminary clinical research indicates that deficiency of vitamin K may weaken bones, potentially leading to osteoporosis, and may promote calcification of arteries and other soft tissues.

Vitamin K includes two natural vitamers: vitamin K1 and vitamin K2:

Vitamin K1

Vitamin K1, also known as phylloquinone, is made by plants, and is found in highest amounts in green leafy vegetables. It performs the classic functions of vitamin K, including its activity in the production of blood coagulation proteins.
Bacteria in the gut flora can convert K1 into vitamin K2.

Vitamin K2

Vitamin K2 or menaquinone, has a similar mechanism of action as vitamin K1. It is suggested that it plays a key role in bone strength and arterial health.
EFSA has acknowledged the following beneficial effects as a basis for health claim:
• Vitamin K contributes to normal blood clotting
• Vitamin K contributes to the maintenance of normal bones

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a generic term covering all tocopherols and tocotrienols which qualitatively exhibit the same biological activity as α−tocopherol. Therefore, vitamin E refers to α-, β-, γ- and δ-tocopherols, plus α-, β-, γ- and δ-tocotrienols.

Antioxidant

Vitamin E is long recognised as the body´s major lipid soluble antioxidant, and thus is fundamental in maintaining the integrity and functionality of the cellular membranes of all cells of the human body. As an antioxidant, vitamin E acts within cell membranes, constructed from unsaturated fatty acids and protects the cell membranes from oxidation. In doing so, the vitamin is oxidised itself and must be ‘recycled’ back to its active form, typically by vitamin C.

Due to its role as an antioxidant, vitamin E may play a key role in the protection against conditions associated with increased oxidative stress, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, disorders involving chronic inflammation, cancer, and neurologic disorders.

Other effects

In addition to its antioxidant function, research demonstrated specific roles of vitamin E in signal transduction, gene expression, and regulation of cellular functions, including immune response. There is substantial evidence that vitamin E has a role in the prevention of atherosclerosis by inhibiting low density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation and anti-inflammatory actions.
EFSA has acknowledged the following beneficial effects as a basis for health claim:
• Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cell constituents from oxidative damage
