What supplements should you be taking to keep your heart healthy? A report published in the Methodist DeBakey Cardiovascular Journal claims omega-3 fatty acids, coenzyme Q10 and red rice yeast could help.
Researchers found O3AEE led to a 28 percent reduced risk of heart attacks, a 50 percent reduced risk of dying from a heart attack, and a 17 percent reduced risk of total coronary heart disease.
In the second trial, cardiovascular disease death was reduced by 19 percent.
And in the third trial, there was a 24 percent decrease in major cardiovascular events.
There is strong evidence in favour of coenzyme Q10 in the treatment of congestive heart failure, particularly in the Q-SYMBIO trial.
During the two-year trial, participants were given 100mg of coenzyme Q10 three times a day.
After two year, results were reported to be “impressive”
There were 43 percent fewer major adverse cardiac events in the treated group compared to the placebo group.
And there was a significant improvement in the severity of symptoms.
It’s important to note supplements aren’t the only way to keep your heart healthy.
Smoking is one of the major causes of cardiovascular disease, so stopping smoking is the single most important thing you can do to improve your heart health, advises the British Heart Foundation (BHF).
Keeping your high blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels in check is also important.
Regular physical activity and health eating are the best way to keep your levels healthy.
