A Heart to Heart with Health.
September 28, 2021
We all know we need to live a healthy lifestyle – reducing stress, choosing healthy eating habits, and being more physically active. But, in the US in 2020, heart disease was one of the leading causes of death, even amidst a global pandemic which claimed millions of lives. We need to take heart health seriously
Thankfully, supplements have huge health benefits.
Here are 7 great additions to help you along your journey to experience the better side of wellness:
1 Omega-3 fatty acids
These acids are polyunsaturated fats. You can find these fats in fish like salmon, mackerel, and sardines. They help lower triglycerides, inflammation, blood pressure, also helping to lower the risk of stroke and heart disease.
High blood pressure, high cholesterol, and plaque buildup are all linked to low magnesium, and still, up to 50% of Americans are magnesium-deficient
Not only can a magnesium supplement help lower blood pressure and decrease the risk of heart attacks, it lowers cortisol which is important for reducing inflammation and control blood sugar levels. Cortisol is also your body’s primary stress hormone.
This carbohydrate found in our bodies helps control cholesterol levels and blood pressure. It can also help control blood sugar by improving insulin sensitivity.
4 Vitamin D
Vitamin D is great for your heart health! It increases energy, protects your bones, and helps regulate insulin levels. Some studies have shown that increasing Vitamin D can lower high blood pressure and reduce the risk of diabetes, and even help prevent strokes.
5 Folate/Folic Acid
This has been shown to be effective in lowering the risk of a heart attack in those with high blood pressure. It’s found in citrus fruit, beans, and vegetables. Those who suffer from inflammatory bowel disease or celiac disease may need to take a folate supplement.
There are also some medications that can affect how your body absorbs folate. So, consult a Naturopathic Doctor to determine the best dosage and whether it is best for you.
6 Coenzyme CoQ10
CoQ10 is naturally produced in your body, and you can get it from certain foods (salmon, tuna, broccoli, and cauliflower).It’s been found that in people with high cholesterol and high triglycerides that there was an improvement in both LDL and HDL cholesterols and blood pressure after taking CoQ10.
7 Grape Seed Extract
Grape seed oil is highly supportive with cholesterol levels and poor circulation (chronic venous insufficiency). It is also high in antioxidants and may help with eye disease related diabetes.
