Metagenics UltraMeal Cardio 360 Pea & Rice - Pear - 19.25 oz
UltraMeal Cardio 360 Pea and Rice Pear Flavor by Metagenics is a medical food formulated to provide specialized nutritional support within a nutritional management program for dyslipidemia.Dyslipidemiasimply means there is elevated total cholesterol or low-density lipoprotein (LDL) which is the bad type of cholesterol. High density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels (this is the good kind) can be low, and the concentrations of other lipids and apolipoproteins can also be abnormal. Dyslipidemia contributes to the development of atherosclerosis which is a hardening of the arteries and is an important risk factor for coronary heart disease (CHD) and stroke. It can also cause peripheral artery disease which reduces blood flow usually in the legs causing damage and potentially stroke.

UltraMeal Cardio 360 works by supplying a combination of phytosterols, bioavailable xanthohumol from hops (XNT ProMatrix™), beneficial micronutrient ratio, soluble fiber (including prebiotic isomalto-oligosaccharides), antioxidant nutrients (vitamins C and E), and a proprietary pea/rice protein base with added amino acids. As part of a heart healthy eating plan the addition of 1.8 g/day of plant sterols/stanols has been shown to lead to beneficial changes in LDL cholesterol in individuals with hypercholesterolemia.
