Cardio Core Essentials Panel

Item # LC100086

The Cardio Core Essentials Panel Blood Test is essential to evaluate cardiovascular disease risk. This test includes a CBC/chemistry profile, lipid panel, apolipoprotein B test and a C-reactive protein (CRP) test.

Life Extension® scientists have assembled a multi-component blood test panel to help you better assess your cardiovascular risk factors. Together, these tests provide a low-cost analysis of your heart and vascular health status.

This specialized panel includes:


The CBC/Chemistry profile includes a complete blood count (CBC) to indicate heart and metabolic health as well as immune health, and platelets for clotting status as well as hemoglobin for oxygen-carrying capacity. The chemistry panel measures glucose levels, electrolytes, important liver enzymes, kidney markers, calcium, and uric acid levels.


The lipid panel measures total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, VLDL, and triglycerides. To determine your total non-HDL, simply subtract your HDL from your total cholesterol.


Apolipoprotein B (ApoB) is the main protein constituent of all non-HDL cholesterol in your blood. This test measures potential plaque-forming particles in your blood. The higher your ApoB the higher your risk of future cardiovascular events.


The C-reactive protein (CRP) blood test measures the level of systemic inflammation, that can indicate the status of your heart health. Elevated CRP over longer periods is associated with increased risk of several diseases and cancer.

Together, these tests are the core essentials to provide information about your potential cardiovascular risk.


This test may be done fasting or 2-6 hours after eating. Both ways provide valuable information, though 2-6 hours after a meal provides a more realistic assessment of the state of your blood in everyday life. Stay hydrated and take your medications as prescribed.

I love that this test includes LDH and uric acid. These are both very helpful to know.


This test was fast and easy. Lab Corp was right on time, even called me in early. Results were fast and this tested things that I my doctor had never ordered. Results gave me extra assurance that I wasn't deficient in my vitamin regiment!


Quick easy and I don't have to wait on an MD to review and finally, weeks later, get back to me.
