Why specifically Orthomol® Cardio?

In the Western industrialized countries cardiovascular diseases are still the number 1 cause of death, far ahead of cancer diseases. Ischemic heart diseases are responsible for the majority of deaths – together with acute myocardial infarction they also represent the most frequent single cause of death. The figures show that cardiovascular diseases should be paid far more attention than has been in the case so far.


As coronary heart disease patients have an increased micronutrient need, supplementation is recommended to ensure an adequate supply of vitamins and phytonutrients, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids contained in fruit, vegetables and fish. In particular, individuals with coronary heart disease and an elevated cardiovascular risk need more of these micronutrients.


A daily dose of Orthomol® Cardio can provide for such persons the micronutrient combination that is recommended – according the orthomolecular principle –that contains nutrients that keep the heart and blood vessels healthy.

Direction to use

Directions to use Orthomol® Cardio


How should Orthomol® Cardio be taken?

Dissolve the contents of one packet (= daily serving) in approximately 100-150 ml of non-carbonated water or fruit juice every day and take it with or after a meal together with the tablet and capsules.

How long should Orthomol® Cardio plus be taken?

In order to satisfy the specifically increased need for micronutrients, we recommend that Orthomol® Cardio is taken regularly and on a long-term basis. Please discuss the duration of use with your doctor.

What must be observed?

  • Orthomol® Cardio is not a complete food. It is a food for special medical purposes.
  • Orthomol® Cardio contains iodine. If you suffer from a hyperfunction of the thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism) please consult your health care provider prior to taking Orthomol® Cardio.
  • Orthomol® Cardio contains easily available carbohydrates; use this dietary food with careful metabolism control in case of disturbances of glucose tolerance.


Is there any other useful information?

  • Orthomol® Cardio is lactose- and gluten-free.
  • When you take Orthomol® Cardio, occasional slight belching (with a slight natural aftertaste) due to the fish oil content (omega-3 fatty acids) in the capsules may occur. In order to avoid this, it is recommended to take the capsules before going to bed.
  • The vitamin B2 content in Orthomol® Cardio may cause a yellow discoloration of the urine.


How should Orthomol® Cardio plus be stored?

Orthomol® Cardio should be kept in a cool, dry place and out of the reach of children.

Good to know

A healthy diet contributes significantly to a functioning cardiovascular system. This may sound obvious, but it is not always easy to achieve in practice. In modern everyday life we often do not pay sufficient attention to a well-balanced, varied diet that is rich in fruit, vegetables, sea fish and whole-grain products and therefore do not intake adequate amounts of valuable micronutrients that are important for the heart.

In daily clinical work the dietary use of micronutrients in both the prevention and nutritional treatment of cardiovascular diseases has been known to be of benefit for a long time. Well-documented epidemiological data support this positive experience. However, the results of major interventional trials, i.e. those focusing on single antioxidants, often contradict clinical experience. Such studies are not able to properly cope with the complexity and multifactorial origin of cardiovascular diseases. Therefore we tend to gradually realize that large endpoint trials with single substances are not able to adequately deal with the cardiovascular effectiveness of micronutrients.

This is why in the past few years the scientific community has started to change its approach. In more recent studies many micronutrients are not used as single substances any more but rather as combinations because the combined ranges of action of various micronutrients with an effect on the cardiovascular system can complement one another in a beneficial way. The combination of vitamins C and E is a good example. Thus, vitamin E which is oxidized itself with the inactivation of oxygen radicals and therefore loses its effect, can be reduced again by vitamin C and coenzyme Q10 and recycled to its active form. Vitamin C in turn is reduced by selenium-containing glutathione peroxidase (GSH). The enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) that needs zinc as a cofactor is the last link in this chain.


A number of studies confirm the benefits of a micronutrient combination such as Orthomol® Cardio for a strong heart and healthy vessels.


Important micronutrients in Orthomol® Cardio and their nutritional features and characteristics:

  • Resveratrol and OPC from red grapes – Protect against free radicals and counteract atherosclerosis
  • High valuable polyphenols from the cocoa bean – Antioxidants with an antiatherogenic effect and with favorable effects on vascular function.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids – Inhibiting platelet aggregation.
  • L-carnitine and coenzyme Q10 – Improving energy generation.
