Ortho C+ is designed to preserve the health of blood vessels by preventing the build-up of arterial plaques. High-dose vitamin C helps to produce collagen, which in turn heals, strengthens and protects the arteries, particularly against the potential danger posed by a circulating lipoprotein known as Lp(a). Lp(a) binds to injured blood vessels, rapidly delivering the cholesterol needed to regenerate the cell wall. Of course, this is how atherosclerotic plaque is formed. Lysine and proline provide alternate binding sites for Lp(a), reducing its ability to attach to the blood vessels and allowing vitamin C to do its healing work. Taurine, magnesium, potassium and calcium are also essential for maintaining a regular heartbeat, and for good muscle and nerve function in the heart.
