Heart Health

Be well. Feel well. Live well.

According to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, 8 in 10 cases of premature heart disease and stroke are preventable through healthy lifestyle behaviours. In addition to a healthy diet and an active lifestyle, incorporating functional heart-protective ingredients can help lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Univar Solutions can provide an array of ingredients to support a healthy heart and a healthier life.  These ingredients may have a beneficial effect on major leading risk factors for heart diseases, such as blood lipid levels and blood pressure. Our dedicated nutraceutical specialists can be your ally, guiding the development of the next generation of formulations with heart-protective potential.
