Top 4 Natural Supplements for Your Heart’s Health
Heart disease is the leading killer of both adult men and women in the United States. Our sedentary modern lifestyles contribute much to this trend.
There’s many natural supplements that can improve your heart’s health. But remember, supplements work best when used in conjunction with other healthy lifestyle habits. For example, you can’t eat junk food at every meal and avoid exercise like the plague, and then rely on the supplement to keep your heart healthy.
Sure, it’ll still help. But you’re just not setting your heart up for long-term success.
So with that in mind, here’s several natural supplements that can improve your heart’s, and cardiovascular system’s, health:
Yes, your mother may have tried to ram it down your throat when you were a child. And, rightly so. As an adult, you should continue to take Vitamin C to reduce your risk of heart disease.
Commonly found in fish oil, EPA and DHA are omega-3 fatty acids that have a number of health benefits. While studies sometimes conflict on the true benefits of certain health supplements, the cardiovascular benefits of EPA and DHA are not one of them. There’s absolutely no doubt about their ability to improve the health of your heart.
Fish oil improves your heart’s rhythm, prevents clotting, and stops plaque build-up in your arteries. Researchers aren’t entirely sure yet, but it’s believed that fish oil also lowers blood pressure while improving your HDL (good) cholesterol.
Omega-3 fatty acids are also particularly helpful in reducing inflammation from diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.
CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10)
CoQ10 prevents damage to your heart during times of stress. It functions inside the mitochondria of your cells, which create the power for your cells to work healthily. CoQ10 prevents the “bad” LDL cholesterol that results from atherosclerosis from oxidizing. Normally, that process causes more damage to your heart.
Garlic is the closest thing to a “superfood” you’ll find naturally. It does wonders. In relation to your heart’s health, it lowers blood cholesterol and triglycerides, and may slightly elevate HDL (good) cholesterol. It may also reduce the oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol.
So, those are just four of many supplements that can improve your cardiovascular health. They offer a nice boost to the way you currently take care of yourself.
