Three supplements are scientifically proven to reduce heart disease, researchers have concluded.
The three that boost heart health are omega-3 fatty acid, which reduces the risk of fatal heart disease, folic acid, which lowers stroke risk, and coenzyme Q10, which protects against all-cause death.
The researchers say that their study demonstrates that supplements do impact on heart health, and people cannot rely solely on a healthy diet, such as the Mediterranean, to maintain the cardiovascular system.
They also think that taking all three supplements together has a positive symbiotic effect that can’t be achieved by taking just one of them in isolation.
Interestingly, the research study found there was no evidence that vitamins C, D and E and selenium kept the heart healthy or prevented type 2 diabetes—a surprising conclusion as C and E are antioxidants, which have been traditionally linked to heart health.
We have all three supplements available at Healing River Chiropractic and during the month of February we are offering them at a 20% discount.
The three supplements are (prices listed after AFTER 20% discount):
Biomega-1000 from Metabolic Management - $48.40
Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids
Biomega-1000™ provides a potent dose of omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs), which reduces the risk of heart disease. The supplement is sourced from a strategically-placed facility in the far South Pacific Ocean off the coast of Chile, guaranteeing the freshest raw material available, full traceability of the product, and unparalleled purity. Each capsule delivers an impressive 1,000 mg of EPA and DHA, making it the ideal choice for therapeutic dosing.
CoQ10 100mg from NutriDyn - $23.40
CoQ10 100mg is a unique formula that contains a highly-absorbable, trademarked form of coenzyme Q10 (CoQsol®), vitamin E, and trademarked vitamin A (Betatene®). Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an essential molecule in the body that helps manufacture energy in mitochondria of cells. This supplement protects against all-cause death.
Given the importance of the nutrients found in CoQ10 100mg for supporting overall health and well-being, supplementation can help users in a variety of ways, including:
B-12 Intrinsic Factor from Progressive Laboratories
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin needed for normal nerve cell activity, DNA replication, and production of the mood-affecting substance SAMe (S-adenosyl-Lmethionine). Vitamin B12 acts with folic acid and vitamin B6 to control homocysteine levels. This supplement lowers stroke risk.
Absorption of vitamin B12 is reduced with increasing age. Some research suggests that elderly people may benefit from 10 to 25 mcg per day of vitamin B12. One study of elderly people with vitamin B12 deficiency suggested that as much as 500 to 1,000 mcg of vitamin B12 per day might be necessary to achieve optimal vitamin B12 status. Vitamin B12 status was measured in this study using a sensitive laboratory test (the plasma methylmalonic acid concentration).
