AIC Therapy, is based on active calcium ion's to support the body. Their is good and bad calcium in the body. Harmful calcium causes blood vessels in the arteries and heart to calcify, or to put it another way this calcium hardens the arteries.
The good calcium, the active calcium ion's do the opposite, they decalcify the arteries, the blood vessels, and even decalcify the cells at a cellular level. Plus CA2+ ( The Active Calcium Ions) plays and important role in regulating the contraction and relaxation phases of the cardiac cycle. In simply language CA2+ helps the heart pump normally and old worn out dead calcium causes problems to the heart.
“I developed a Mitral valve prolapse heart condition that in which the two valve flaps of the mitral valve do not close smoothly or evenly, but instead bulge upward into the left atrium. I was a sprinter in my high school years but then I could not climb the stairs or run. My heart pain continued and the Richmond Cardiologist, Dr. Broumand, told me that my life stopwatch started and I was dying.
I was then introduced to Pronuvia’s scientific discoveries and innovation during the winter of 2010. On or about Spring of 2011, I tried some of the SAC Calcium products and I immediately felt the increase of my energy. Three months after taking SAC Calcium I began walking on my treadmill. Initially I walked for 15 minutes but after 2 months I began jogging.” (E. Baragoosh, 59, Male)

Coconut oil contains natural saturated fats that increase HDL the good cholesterol levels in your body. They may also help turn LDL the bad cholesterol into a less harmful form. By increasing HDL, many experts believe that coconut oil may boost heart health compared with many other fats. Plus if you cook with oil to fry foods, cooking with coconut oil is a more healthy choice as coconut oil is more stable over high temperatures , where as other oils are not so stable at higher temperatures. E.g Olive oil has a lower smoke point-the point at which an oil literally begins to smoke (olive oil's is between 365° and 420°F). When you heat olive oil to its smoke point, the beneficial compounds in oil start to degrade, and potentially health-harming compounds form.
