Heart Healthy Supplements

  in Blog

Common sense would tell us it's better to get your nutrients from foods, not pills. When you eat a diet rich in organic vegetables, fruits, fermented foods, grass-fed meats, wild-caught fish, healthy fats, and whole grains, you don't get individual nutrients in isolation — you get them as nature intended, in a blend of vitamins, carbohydrates, fiber, and healthy fat, all of which are beneficial for heart health. Although there is no substitute for a sound diet and active lifestyle, a few supplements may nevertheless be helpful in maintaining a healthy heart. According to articles from mayoclinic.org, the following supplements may be beneficial for heart health:

  • Coenzyme Q10
  • L-carnetine
  • L-arginine
  • Fish Oil
  • Green Tea Extract
  • Niacin
  • Pysllium
  • Artichoke Extract
  • Calcium

Recommended by Dr. Thomas Cowan:

  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin K2

Eating a perfect diet at all times can be challenging for many people. Supplements might be able to fill in the gaps but cannot replicate all the health benefits of whole foods. For these and many other products, Oryana carries a wide variety of the highest quality supplements in Northern Michigan.

Note: As always, be sure to consult your physician before relying on these or other supplements to maintain heart health as supplements might interact with other medications.
