Just say “no” to miracles.

At Lycored, we know that real cardiovascular wellness isn’t the result of quick fixes and magic pills. So we decided to shine a light on our version of mindful living as well as the power and necessity of scientific research. When combined, these two things work to make a positive impact on the wellbeing of your heart now and in the long run.

It starts with the heart.

Brush up on heart-friendly activities and foods (dessert included).

  • Facts & Figures

    It’s easy to find frightening statistics when it comes to heart conditions—but here are some important, and uplifting, bits of intel that we find pretty inspiring.

  • Laughing not only makes you feel good, it’s good for you! Some studies have even linked it to a reduction in stress hormones.

  • It’s not bad to have a sweet tooth—polyphenol-rich dark chocolate (in moderation, of course) can be a positive addition to any heart-friendly diet.

  • Meditation not only reduces general stress, it helps calm the heart which is important for overall cardiovascular health.

  • Good-For-You Foods

    Let’s get cooking—some of the best foods for cardiovascular wellness are things that many people love and include in their regular diet. The secret? Go easy on the salt and added seasonings and stick to reasonable portions.

  • Wild Salmon

  • Walnuts

  • Avocados

  • Oranges

  • Oatmeal

  • Broccoli

  • Tomatoes

  • Movement Matters

    The American Heart Association recommends 150 minutes per week of moderate exercise. Don’t break a sweat—that’s only about 30 minutes spread across five days (and brisk walking counts). Below you’ll find some other easy things to add to your to-move list.

  • Swimming

  • Yoga

  • Pilates

  • Bicycling

  • Dancing

  • Hiking

  • Interval Training


We’re committed to going above and beyond.

When it comes to supplementation, we believe that rigorous testing is every bit as important as excellent, earth-derived ingredients. Cardiomato™ has already been the subject of six well-controlled clinical trials, and we’re excited to continue studying our proprietary blend and the phytonutrients inside in the years ahead.

  • Cardiomato™

    Cardio-grade tomato extract and phytosterol complex

  • Supports heart health

  • Helps maintain blood pressure already within the normal range

  • Helps support a healthy circulatory system

  • Reduces oxidized LDL levels

  • Cardiomato™

    Cardio-grade tomato extract and phytosterol complex

  • Comprised of our proprietary phytosterol complex and our patented standardized tomato extract (which contains six key phytonutrients for optimized heart health), Cardiomato is formulated to foster improved cardiovascular wellness over time. Our own studies indicate that this particular combination of nutrients may even be able to decrease the negative effects of oxidized LDL after a meal.1 Proven safe and effective in six well-controlled clinical trials, Cardiomato is formulated to nourish the endothelial lining, maintain normal blood pressure, and support a healthy circulatory system.

  • Cardio-Grade Tomato Extract

    Clinical trials have shown that a combination of carotenoids in food sources and supplements is a better approach to health maintenance than lycopene by itself which is why we created our standardized tomato extract. Our proprietary blend contains potent nutrients such as phytosterols that have been shown to positively impact heart health.

  • This placebo-controlled randomized study on 126 male subjects measured endothelial function by reactive hyperemia peripheral arterial tonometry (RH-PAT), immune function by serum hs-CRP levels (among other markers), and oxidative stress by plasma superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity.

    The study results showed statistically significant decreases in systolic blood pressure and hs-CRP serum concentrations. They also showed a statistically significant increase in endothelial function. Additionally, supplementation had beneficial effects on oxidative stress markers including increased plasma SOD activity.
