DW Heart Power cares for the heart through cellular nutrition. DW Heart Power is carefully formulated with the highest and richest quality of concentrated herbal extracts, such as Monascus Purpureus Went (known to promote blood circulation and remove blood stasis) and other ingredients that care for the heart at a cellular level. Other ingredients include L-Carnitine (providing energy to cell and organs), Alpha-Lipoic Acid (which acts as a shield to the cells and their mitochondria), Gingsing Root Saponins, Coenzyme Q10, Tanshinone, and many others. †
The Science Behind DW Heart Power
DW Heart Power works at a molecular level combining ingredients that promote heart health while also rejuvenating cells within the body. DW Heart power works by reducing bad cholesterol levels, decreasing free radical content, protecting cells, and promoting energy for cells to nourish.†

Monascus Purpureus Went
According to Mayo Clinic there is strong scientific evidence indicating that monascus purpureus went for high cholesterol. Monacolins, compounds found in red yeast rice extract (RYRE), have been found to have health benefits since the early 1980s. In particular, monacolin K has been marketed as lovastatin and mevinolin. However, due to the large number of compounds that may lower cholesterol other than monacolin K, the cholesterol-lowering mechanism is still unclear. It has been suggested that RYR may block absorption of cholesterol, promote the clearance of cholesterol, or exert antioxidant effects. Overall, results suggest that red yeast rice (RYR) products may lower levels of total and LDL cholesterol in people with high cholesterol. Some studies also suggest increases in HDL cholesterol. However, more information on long-term safety and effectiveness is needed.
The lipid-lowering effects of Monascus purpureus rice have been shown in several animal models of hyperlipidemia to inhibit and prevent increases in total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and triglycerides (6).

Early evidence suggest that monascus purpureus went may be beneficial for liver health in people with diabetes, but more studies are still needed to clarify this.
Ginseng berry extract reduced hyperglycemia and body weight in C57BL/6J ob/ob mice and C57BL/Ks db/db mice. Ginseng leaf-stem extracts also had this anti-diabetic effect. Ginseng leaf and root extracts increased the basal content and glucose-dependent secretion of insulin in blood.
Active ingredients and hypoglycemic properties of American ginseng leaf were examined with high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) in diabetic ob/ob mice. The results indicated that American ginseng leaf extract significantly reduced blood glucose levels. Intraperitoneal glucose tolerance test showed that the leaf extract significantly improved glucose disposal. Thus, American ginseng leaf extract, with its high ginsenoside yield, may be an inexpensive alternative to the root for diabetic treatment. Similar anti-hyperglycemic activity was observed in a study on total ginsenosides of Chinese ginseng leaf-stem.
Several human studies found that ginseng lowered blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes.
Gingseng Root Saponin can effectively inhibit the formation of lipid oxide in organs, decrease brown pigments levels in cerebral cortex and liver, and at the same time increase the hepatocuprein catalase content in our blood. Gingseng Root Saponins simplified stops oxidation in our body, decreasing free radicals within our body.†

High Blood Pressure
Early evidence shows that Panax ginseng might slightly decrease blood pressure in people with high blood pressure.
Low levels of CoQ10 have been associated with heart failure according to some studies. Early evidence suggest that CoQ10 may be effective for chronic heart failure.
High Blood Pressure
There is good evidence to support that CoQ10 is useful for treating high blood pressure.
Q10 Coenzymes is found within the body, it is used to produce energy your body needs for cell growth and maintenance. It is also an antioxidant that protects cells at a molecular level.†

In one study large doses of CoQ10 appeared to slow the progression of early Parkinson's.
Studies show that Tanshinone has many positive effects on the cardiovascular system such as enlarging coronary arteries, increasing blood flow of coronary arteries, reduce hear rate, increase heart contractility, reducing blood lipids, protecting red blood cells, and stopping bacteria production.†
Tanshinone exhibits a variety of cardiovascular activities including vasorelaxation and cardio-protective effects. However, the pretreatment effects and mechanisms of tanshinone on cardio-protection are not well understood. Tanshione is also known to act as an antioxidant, reacting with free radicals to prevent oxidative cell damage in several types of preparations

In a study done with zebra fish with damaged tails researchers found that tanshinone IA had impact on reducing inflamation.
Some good evidence shows that carnitine can be used along with conventional treatment for stable angina. A few small studies have also shown that carnitine may also help when used with medicine for heart attack and some small studies suggest that carnitine can reduce symptoms of heart failure, these studies are still insufficient however.

Alpha Linolinic Acid & Y Linolinic Acid
High Blood Pressure
A study done on a population found that alpha-linolinic acid reduces the risk in high blood pressure by 30%.
ALA may help lower high blood pressure.
There's some evidence that people who have a high ALA diet are less likely to have a fatal heart attack.
In some cases carthamidin from safflower has been shown to improve blood flow.
