agel_hrtFor quite some time now, since joining up with Agel a little over 4 years ago, I’ve become a product of the product. One of the products that I feel has benefited me very much has been Agel HRT.

I take it of course for what it’s meant for…for heart health and cholesterol control.

Recently however I’ve been hearing that people are seeing success with Agel HRT for their psoriasis.

Why the Heck Would Agel HRT – a Heart Health Supplement – have Any Effect on Someone’s Psoriasis?

Well there’s actually much more of a connection than you might think. I was actually quite surprised myself to find out that there was a huge link in psoriasis and heart disease. You wouldn’t think that something that affects the skin could even be linked to heart troubles but it certainly does.

Let’s tackle and get an understanding of what Psoriasis actually is first.

Though it’s not life threatening on its own, Psoriasis can be very painful and physically and emotionally stressful to a person. It affects the skin by creating thick red patches that are covered with silvery sort of scales. It primarily affects the elbows, knees, lower back, scalp, and legs.

Some people’s ability to function is terribly compromised from psoriasis. It gets worse. About 25% of those that suffer will end up with joint problems known as psoriatic arthritis.

So it’s a serious thing, but even more serious when you find out that it increases the chances of having a heart attack by twice for those in their 40’s or older. Not to mention that people with psoriasis are 1.42 times more likely to have heart failure according to Mayo researchers.

From an article that I recently read: “Researchers who studied medical records for more than 680,000 British patients found that people in their 40s with severe psoriasis were more than twice as likely to suffer a heart attack than people without the skin disease.”

(You can read more about the original study here: Psoriasis may raise heart attack risk – Skin condition elevates blood inflammation levels, study finds. )

So now we begin to see the connection between heart disease and Psoriasis so we can begin to understand the correlation of how Agel HRT can be an effective supplement for Psoriasis sufferers.

A lot of it seems to do with the some of the 7 active ingredients that Agel HRT contains. The seven ingredients are Oyster Mushroom, Taurine, Carnitine, Coenzyme Q10, Policosanol, Selenium, and Folic Acid.

The ingredients that seem to be the most probable in helping with psoriasis for some people are:

• Coenzyme Q10 – an antioxidant that has been thought after studies to be effective for psoriasis. Other antioxidants noted in the same study were vitamin E, and Selenium.
• Taurine – apparently people who suffer with psoriasis seem to have a decrease in their Taurine levels.
• Folic Acid – according to Doctors from the Department of Dermatology, New York University School of Medicine, New York, New York, after examining the available data from the literature and drawing from clinical experience, agree that Folic acid supplementation appears as a reasonable therapeutic option in patients affected by chronic inflammatory skin diseases, such as moderate to severe psoriasis.

So after all of this it becomes very logical and sensible to assume that a supplement for that is supposed to strengthen and keep the heart healthy would also have a positive effect on psoriasis.

Whether or not this was just a happy accident matters none, because the fact that people are having a positive experience using Agel HRT for their very disturbing and discomforting psoriasis is a very welcome thing to all of us in the Agel family!
