New Hope for People with Heart Disease
There's no doubt about it-people with heart disease lack energy. The heart needs a large amount of oxygenated blood flow to continuously meet its huge energy demands. That's where the new triad of cardiac health comes in-CoQ10, carnitine, and ribose. The synergistic combination of these energy-supplying nutrients maximizes the amount of oxygen that the heart and skeletal muscle can extract from the blood by accelerating the rate at which cells convert nutrients to energy.
In The Sinatra Solution , board-certified cardiologist Dr. Stephen T. Sinatra discusses the importance of energy metabolism on cardiovascular health and the positive impact these three energy-supplying nutrients have on the cardiovascular system. Dr. Sinatra knows that understanding energy metabolism in the heart is critical to devising effective therapies for treating heart disease. He guides readers through the basics of energy metabolism and cardiac bioenergetics, and clearly explains the roles of ribose, carnitine, and CoQ10in the body and specifically how they affect heart health. He provides concise and informative examples of case histories and scientific studies that are testament to the important contribution the supplemental use of these energy-supplying nutrients makes in the lives of people with heart disease every day.
While the main focus of The Sinatra Solution is on improving heart health, this book also touches upon the positive effect the triad has on other disease and disorders. Readers will learn that the supplemental use of these miraculous nutrients isn't limited to healing a sick heart and preventing heart disease. Their energy-enhancing abilities work throughout the body, essentially charging up every body cell to function at optimal capacity.

In the New York Times bestseller The Plant Paradox, Dr. Steven Gundry introduced readers to the hidden toxins lurking in seemingly healthy foods like tomatoes, zucchini, quinoa, and brown rice: a class of plant-based proteins called lectins. Many people are familiar with one of the most predominant lectins—a substance called gluten, which is found in wheat and other grains. But while cutting out the bread and going gluten-free is relatively straightforward, going lectin-free is no small task.
Now, in The Plant Paradox Cookbook, Dr. Gundry breaks down lectin-free eating step by step and shares one hundred of his favorite healthy recipes. Dr. Gundry will offer an overview of his Plant Paradox program and show readers how to overhaul their pantries and shopping lists to make delicious, simple, seasonal, lectin-free meals. He’ll also share his hacks for making high-lectin foods safe to eat, including methods like pressure-cooking grains and peeling and deseeding tomatoes.
With a quick-start program designed to boost weight loss and recipes for smoothies, breakfasts, main meals, snacks, and desserts, The Plant Paradox Cookbook will show readers of The Plant Paradox—and more—how delicious it can be to eat lectin-free.
