Heart Health

Keeping the heart healthy is crucial, no matter how old we are or the kind of life we lead. Maintaining already-healthy cholesterol levels and promoting blood pressure already within normal range are key because they directly affect your heart. An efficient heart and circulatory system can improve health and well-being, so we can get the most out of life. A healthy lifestyle and regular exercise combined with the right supplements can help provide nutrients we do not get enough of from even the most thoughtful diets to support cholesterol and blood pressure levels within the healthy range.

Heart Health Information & Research

  1. Which supplements support a healthy heart?

    Vitamins B3, C, D, E and K, the flavonoid resveratrol, magnesium, coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ), omega-3 fatty acids, the amino acids L-carnitine and taurine, extracts of the herbs hawthorn and arjuna, and D-ribose all support a healthy heart through several mechanisms.

  2. What are good ways to promote a healthy heart?

    Taking care of your heart means being proactive. Schedule annual checkups with your doctor to track all of your levels. Be sure to get enough exercise; the current recommendation is at least 150 minutes weekly, or about 20 minutes daily of moderate-intensity exercise. Cut down on salt intake, and if you smoke, consider quitting. Eating healthy and exercising can help you maintain a healthy weight as well, which is also good for your heart.

  3. How does CoQ10 support heart health?

    Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is vitally important for supporting cardiovascular health, as it is involved in the production of ATP, the energy molecule. CoQ10 levels in heart tissue decline during normal aging. CoQ10 supplementation has been shown to promote heart health.
