Information

A list of supplements that benefit the heart. This list specifically refers to the cardiac tissue and its functions per se, and does not necessarily contain supplements that act on the periphery.

The supplements on this page are going to be quite intertwined with those in our Blood Pressure and Circulation stack pages as well as any antiinflammatory compounds that help with artherosclerotic (plaque) buildup. All the above can be referred to as 'heart healthy' since they are all involved with blood circulation.



Suggested Supplements

Dosage: 500mg

500mg of the water extract from Arjuna bark, either once a day if in a healthy state or thrice a day if recovering from cardiac insult (Myocardial Infarction as an example) appears to benefit left ventricle function and the ejection fraction.

Bioactives are currently unknown and the studies conducted seem to have less than optimal sample size, but all evidence currently points to seemingly broad benefits to cardiac tissue function which may extend to healthy persons as well as those with impaired cardiac function.



Dosage: 90

90-300mg is the range (with 300mg likely being better, but 90mg the lowest recommended dose). CoQ10 is associated with improved quality of life, daily functioning, and cardiovascular health post-myocardial infarction (after a heart attack). In this instance, CoQ10 supplementation becomes much more effective than placebo or control and is somewhat synergistic with exercise.

For other heart conditions, the benefits may not be as noticeable or have such a large magnitude. There is definitely a protective effect, but if not post-myocardial infarction then a cost-benefit analysis (in regard to purchasing the CoQ10, safety with CoQ10 is high) might not so unilaterally favor CoQ10.
