One of the few memories I have of my maternal grandfather is the emergency workers carrying his body down a flight of stairs and out the front door to the sound of my family weeping. He died of a heart attack at the age of 62. My grandmother lasted a few more years, but she also died of heart disease. My mother had a heart attack at the age of 55. And both of my uncles have had bypass operations; one a triple, the other a quadruple. So, as I approached the age of 50 I started worrying about my own heart health. I was having dinner with my uncle when the subject came up and I commented that I hoped I hadn’t inherited the family’s propensity for heart disease. My uncle said, “Perhaps you will take better care of your heart that we did.”

That got me to thinking. What could I possibly do to prevent myself from going down this same road? I dove into the peer-reviewed medical and scientific literature reported by the National Institutes of Health, US Dept. of Health and Human Services, and the National Medical Library; as well as the peer-reviewed alternative medical and scientific literature that, for some reason, is not archived by the National Medical Library. (You can read a summary of my research, which includes 122 papers and 2 patents, by clinking on Research Report. But the most succinct summary of this research was made by Dr. Linus Pauling himself when he said, “The beauty of our research is that, once the cause of atherosclerosis is clearly understood as a chronic nutritional deficiency, the prevention and cure of atherosclerosis becomes obvious.”*) I discovered that there are 19 critical nutrients the human cardiovascular system needs, to get and stay in optimum health, that are hard to get enough of in the typical western diet.

So, in 2008 I consulted with 3 PhDs in nutrition and partnered with Douglas Labs to produce the world’s most comprehensive cardiovascular support nutritional supplement on the market: The Pauling Therapy Essentials Formula. We have sold thousands of jars to customers all over the world (every continent except Antarctica). And we have collected many testimonials; some of which you can read by clicking on our Testimonials link. We keep the PTEF formula current by monitoring the medical and scientific literature (we have tweaked the formula 3 times since 2008).

FDA Disclosure Statement:

There are thousands of studies published in peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals that support the conclusion that the human body needs to ingest particular nutrients, in certain amounts on a daily basis to support and maintain the normal, healthy functioning of its cardiovascular system.

The ideal way to provide these daily nutrients is to eat enough highly nutritious food every day. However, with the advent of industrial factory farming, the use (or overuse) of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, hybridization, genetic engineering, food processing techniques, and the transport of food over long distances – today’s grocery store food just doesn’t have the nutrition it had a hundred years ago. This makes it very difficult to get enough nutrition to support and maintain the normal, healthy functioning of the cardiovascular system by eating a normal amount of food every day. In fact, many of us in the developed nations are both overweight AND undernourished. Indeed, we may be overweight BECAUSE we are undernourished!

One way to provide the body with the nutrients it needs to support and maintain the normal, healthy functioning of its cardiovascular system is to take nutritional supplements. The Pauling Therapy Essentials Formula (PTEF) provides many of these required nutrients. There is nothing exotic about these nutrients: they are vitamins, minerals and amino acids; nutrients the whole body needs anyway to stay healthy. God/Nature gave the human body the ability to maintain healthy functioning. But your body can NOT support and maintain the normal, healthy function of your cardiovascular system unless you supply it with the proper, daily nutrition!

There are hundreds of studies published in peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals that support the conclusion that the nutrients in the Pauling Therapy Essentials Formula (PTEF) support and maintain the normal, healthy functioning of the human cardiovascular system.

We would like to emphasize that the PTEF is NOT a drug that magically “cleans out” your arteries. The PTEF is a nutritional supplement, NOT a drug. Nutritional supplements contain substances typically found in food (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and botanicals) and are intended to help the human body support and maintain normal, healthy functioning. Drugs contain one or more chemical substances typically manufactured in a laboratory (and distinctly different from natural substances or they couldn’t be patented) and are intended to treatment, cure, prevent, or diagnosis a disease.

Since the PTEF contains only vitamins, minerals and amino acids and is sold to help our customers support and maintain the normal, healthy functioning of their cardiovascular systems, it is a nutritional supplement – NOT a drug. If fact, you can think of the PTEF as a multi-vitamin for the cardiovascular system (multi-vitamins are also NOT drugs).

These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. The various versions of the Pauling Therapy are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult your physician before using any of the various versions of the Pauling Therapy.

Our USP is an outgrowth of the Dr. Pauling quote: Once you have determined the cause, the solution becomes obvious. If the cause of atherosclerosis is multiple nutritional deficiencies, then the obvious solution is to resupplement with the missing nutrients. The Pauling Therapy Essentials Formula (PTEF) is the only heart healthy formula on the market with 19 potent, active ingredients AND in the required doses. Our competitors either don’t address the cause (the medical approach of drugs, surgery, chelation or other medical procedures) or they try to supplement with only a few ingredients in ineffective (sub-therapeutic) doses. So, in reality the PTEF has no competitors!

Ray Ellis, the Founder and President of Save Your Heart, has been on both ends of the customer service spectrum. He has worked for multiple companies in a customer service capacity and has interacted with many brick and mortar and online companies as a customer. He knows what good and bad customer service looks like. Ray has built Save Your Heart solely by word of mouth; customers referring new customers. About 90% of the business is through repeat customers who order regularly. We are so friendly with some of our long term customers that we consider them as part of our extended family. Ray reads every email sent to He may not respond personally (he has people for that). But, if there is a problem, he knows about it and will make sure it is taken care of appropriately. Ray, and everyone who works for Save Your Heart, knows that their continued success is dependent upon providing customer service that is beyond our customer’s expectations.

Every year in the United States 600,000 people die from heart disease and $450 billion is spent on treating heart disease. Worldwide over 17 million die every year and the treatment cost is estimated to be well over a trillion dollars. Most of these people don’t know that there is an alternative to statin drugs, baby aspirins, bypass operations, stents, angioplasty, etc. The yearly cost of treating 18 million people with the Pauling Therapy Essentials Formula would be about $108 billion. That’s one tenth of one percent of the current cost of treatment! And we would be treating THE CAUSE and not just treating THE SYMPTOMS!

Our mission is to inform every person on planet Earth that there is an alternative to the medical industry’s “Standard of Care” for heart disease and to grant them the opportunity to purchase, at an affordable price, the very best nutritional supplement formula specifically designed to provide the support needed to maintain the normal, healthy functioning of their cardiovascular systems.

When Ray isn’t working, he and his wife’s favorite activities are: spoiling their first grandchild (there’s another one on the way!), kayaking, walking on the beach, and traveling. Recent great adventure: kayaking with the manatees on the Orange River in Florida. We saw dozens of them; many only an arm’s length away! It was really cool!
