Health supplements can help keep a heart healthy

Go and view or buy health supplements designed to help your heart keep healthy

Health supplements for the heart are intended to control the development of heart disease and a few are thought actually be beneficial.

Obesity, stress, unhealthy cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and physical inactivity are generally the issues here.

Increased energy, leading to a greater moitivation to excercise is one area and Green Tea, folic acid, magnesium, vitamin C and B vitamins are amongst them. 

Another issue stress. Gingko Biloba has been shown to relieve the symptoms of depression and used for patients with heart disease. Gingko Biloba, when combined with ginger, can reduce anxiety.

people under consistent stress need extra vitamin C, which cannot be produced by the body, so must be obtained from food or supplements. Hence health heart supplements often contain vitamin C. It's a good idea to take this in regular lower does than one large dose per day as otherwise your body will take what it needs and get rid of the rest.

Cholesterol and Blood Pressure

Prescription medications (statins) inhibit the production of cholesterol but can also inhibit the production of Coenzyme Q-10. Q-10 is created by the body when nutritional levels are good, but when inhibited, muscle death including the heart muscle can occur.

Originally, formulaters intended to add CO Q-10 to the mixture, but the manufacturers just added the warning that muscle pain should be reported to your doctor. Many health care professionals feel that once deep muscle pain is felt, there may well already be a problem.

If statin drugs are being taken it is a good idea to take CO Q-10. Good heart health supplements contain ingredients that will lower levels of bad cholesterol naturally and often include rutin, policosanol, inositol and vitamin C.
