Why are heart health supplements important?

Did you know that an average human heart beats 60 times per minute? If an average person lives to the age of 75 years old, then that heart would take 2,365,200,00 beats in a lifetime!

Heart disease is more common as you age so it’s important to have regular check-ups and to know your specific heart disease risk factors. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both women and men. To help prevent heart disease, you can eat healthy, stay physically active, maintain a healthy weight for your height, give up smoking and other recreational drugs, control your cholesterol and blood pressure, manage stress and drink alcohol only in moderation.

Heart Health Supplements can complement your diet by helping to fill any gaps in nutrient intake. Heart healthy vitamins and minerals to consider taking include:

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an antioxidant used by the body’s cells for growth and maintenance. As a person gets older, the levels of CoQ10 in their body starts decreasing. The body uses Coenzyme Q10 to produce ATP – the energy currency of cells. Coenzyme Q10 is concentrated in the heart (cardiac) tissue because the heart needs a continuous supply of cellular energy.

Magnesium is crucial in assisting over 300 enzymes to carry out various chemical reactions in the body such as building proteins and strong bones, and regulating blood sugar, blood pressure, and muscle and nerve functions.

Vitamin D may assist in preventing cardiovascular disease (CVD) and type 2 diabetes mellitus. People with low blood levels of Vitamin D have increased risks of heart disease, stroke, hypertension, and diabetes.

Vitamin K2 plays a pivotal role in heart health because of its carrier and transport function. It activates the protein Osteocalcin, which helps take Calcium from the blood circulation and bind it to the bone matrix. Vitamin K2 also keeps Calcium from accumulating in the walls of blood vessels by activating matrix GLA protein (MGP) to prevent arterial calcification.
