Supplements for Heart Disease

supplements for heart diseaseAs a continuation of last month’s newsletter, Secrets of Cholesterol Lowering Drugs, we know it is important to make many lifestyle changes in hope to stop Statin Drugs. Appropriate dietary supplementation will help to amplify the cardiovascular benefit. In this newsletter, you will find information on six supplements that I believe are the most beneficial for our hearts.

CV Support Multi Formula is a synergistic and comprehensive combination of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, herbs and other nutrients, carefully formulated and specifically designed to support the structure and functions of the cardiovascular system. CV Support Multi Formula has positive effects on the cardiovascular system and function, including increased contractile force, heart beat, and nerve conductibility and potent antioxidant protection against free radicals. It contains higher doses of Beta-Carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and B-Complex Vitamins because of their roles in antioxidant protection, energy production, and maintenance of healthy blood cells. Herbs, such as Hawthorn and Ginkgo, have vasodilatory effects on the cardiovascular system.

Cal/Mag/Zinc w/ Vitamin D contains a 2:1 combination of Calcium and Magnesium to help support bone and cardiovascular health. Magnesium supports cardiovascular health by helping to maintain healthy levels of cellular and plasma electrolytes, including calcium and potassium. Additionally, calcium and magnesium may help to promote healthy lipid metabolism.

Niacin is an essential cofactor in many metabolic pathways in the body. Plain Niacin has been used extensively for years to reduce cholesterol and tryglycerides, but many side effects were reported. Niacin Supreme has no adverse reactions with dosages up to four grams. Niacin Supreme is a combined no-flush niacin with key B vitamins and chromium. Chromium helps to potentiate many of niacin’s beneficial effects.

UltraTrienols Plus is a powerful cholesterol support product that contains tocopherol – free Annatto Tocotrienols, polyphenol, resveratrol, and Neptune Krill Oil. The combination of these ingredients have been researched and found that they help lower Total Cholesterol, LDL, Tryglycerides, and help increase HDL. While the structure of tocotrienols differs only slightly from vitamin E, their function is quite different. Studies have reported that tocotrienols support lipid metabolism by maintaining healthy enzyme activity.

Omega 3’s Softgels is a ultra-pure fish oil concentrate which offers nutritional support to the cardiovascular system and the joints. EPA and DHA from fish oil promote cardiovascular health by supporting healthy triglyceride and lipid metabolism, maintaining healthy blood flow, and supporting healthy platelet function.

Co Q10 , is a necessary component of cellular energy production and respiration. Co Q10 enhances energy levels in every cell in the body, providing increased energy and exercise tolerance, and optimal nutritional support for the cardiovascular system. It provides support to all cells of the body, and is especially supportive of tissues that require a lot of energy, such as the heart muscle, periodontal tissue, and the cells of the body’s natural defense system. Statin drugs (most cholesterol lowering drugs) deplete Co Q10 levels, therefore Co Q10 supplementation is essential for anyone on Statin drugs.
