General Product Questions: AltoViva™ for Heart Health*
How is AltoViva’s cardio blend different from others?
AltoViva™ for Heart Health is based on over 30 years of formulation research and respects the need to combine certain nutrients with others to optimize their effects. For instance, niacin should never be taken alone for vascular health. It should always be combined with other nutrients that support the healthy strength and function of heart muscle tissue. Such formulation intricacy is rare on the market today.* AltoViva™ for Heart Health contains a total of 13 ingredients including key B-vitamins, CoQ10, magnesium, antioxidant extracts, and fibrinolytic enzymes. All together, these ingredients provide holistic, positively interacting effects:
- Supports healthy heart muscle function*
- Promotes arterial health*
- Promotes balanced metabolism of dietary fats*
- Helps maintain healthy blood pressure already in the normal range*
AltoViva™ also utilizes the highest quality ingredient sources to ensure consistent results for our customers.*

Use Directions: AltoViva™ for Heart Health*
How should I take AltoViva™ for Heart Health?
As a dietary supplement, take 4 tablets daily with water on an empty stomach. May be divided into 2 tablets a.m., 2 tablets p.m. Take on an empty stomach (at least 2 hours after or 1 hour before a meal).
Start with a minimal dosage of 1 capsule twice daily on empty stomach, and work up to 4 capsules per day. You may take up to 9 tablets per day for optimal effects, but should speak with a primary health care provider to determine the best protocol for their goals. AltoViva™ for Heart Health should be taken at least three hours apart from any prescription heart medications. Read cautions, and use only as directed.
Can I take AltoViva™ for Heart Health if I take other heart medications?
Yes, when used as directed, AltoViva™ for Heart Health is safe for use alongside most prescription medications. Because it contains Coenzyme Q10, it is especially recommended to take our Heart Health blend if you are taking statins. However, it should be taken at least 3 hours apart from any heart health medications. AltoViva™ for Heart Health is NOT recommended if you take nitrates for heart health or for erectile function.
I’m concerned about the niacin flush? Is there any way to avoid it?
AltoViva™ for Heart Health does contain niacin, which can cause a “niacin flush”—a tingly warm feeling and darkening or reddening of the skin, especially on the face, neck and chest. The flush starts 15 to 30 minutes after consuming niacin and then fades gradually, usually within minutes. It is fully gone after an hour. For some people, the niacin flush can feel funny, but it is actually a good thing. It occurs because niacin causes blood vessels, including micro-capillaries, to dilate (expand) quickly. This promotes a natural “flushing” of the vascular system.* If you wish, you may take a lower dose of the product (for instance 1 tablet on empty stomach, once per day) and slowly work up to 1 tablet twice daily, then 2 tablets twice daily. Over time and consistent use, the body grows accustomed to the flushing effect, and the visible and sensory effects may drastically decline or disappear entirely.
May I take AltoViva™ for Heart Health with food?
Preferably, AltoViva™ for Heart Health should be taken on an empty stomach only. Taking it with food will negate the effects of the niacin flush. That’s not actually desirable. The niacin will not get to convey its vascular health effects. Taking this product with food will also compromise the effects of the enzymes in the blend. They are meant to convey their fibrinolytic support in the vascular system. If you take AltoViva™ for Heart Health with food, the enzymes will work on the food in your digestive tract instead and will never reach your vascular system.*
