April 26, 2007 — Cardiologist Lee A. Surkin, M.D., FAAC, is set to launch a new line of cardiac nutritional supplements this July. He says the new Cardiac Wellness Supplements are designed to complement, not replace, standard cardiovascular disease prevention and treatment therapies.
"Simply put, I developed Cardiac Wellness Supplements out of necessity," said Dr. Surkin. "I believe in an integrative approach to the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. That means traditional medical care, exercise, and basic nutrition. As my patients became more educated, they asked me for recommendations for supplements to help improve their nutrition. I wasn't able to find the right supplements to meet their needs, so I developed my own proprietary line of products that I am now bringing to a broader market."
"Supplements are a worrisome area for many physicians because in most cases there is a real lack of solid scientific data to support safety or outcome," said Dr. Surkin. "As I looked at products available in the marketplace, I found few suitable options. And of the products I was comfortable recommending, expense was almost always an obstacle. Now, with my Wellcor Products, I can comfortably recommend products that have data to support them and are cost-effective."
Dr. Surkin utilized his training in human nutrition and cardiology to develop Cardiac Wellness Supplements, focusing on ingredients that have substantial scientific data on safety, efficacy and dosage. The product line will include five products: Wellcor Defense -- Omega 3, Wellcor Energize -- Supreme Green Tea, Wellcor Guard -- Resveratrol / Quercitin, Wellcor Strength -- CoEnzyme Q10 / Hawthorn and Wellcor Control -- Alpha-Lipoic Acid / L- Carnitine.
