Normally, this preparation is used for people who are suffering of heart insufficiency, of heart failure or recovering after myocardial infarction. But athletes are using this product to protect themselves during the training process, because they are working very hardly, on the boarder of the human body physical capacity, and therefor it is very important to protect the heart of the sportsman in case if the demand of the oxygen will be substantially higher than the supply, lack of oxygen in heart celles. If this is the case, the heart cells are dieing and a man is suffering from myocardial infarction and is lost for sport.
