Heart health is so very important, so taking care of it should be a priority. Your heart is a hard working organ, must pump blood continuously, never taking a break, never having a rest. The following are a few things you can do to help the health of our heart.
Eating lots of fruits, vegetables, fish, as well as a low sugar and low caffeine intake, is a good place to start. Foods containing Vitamin C such as: peppers, kiwis, berries and citrus fruits are good for heart health too.
Essential Fatty Acids are also great for heart health; fish, flax, extra virgin olive oil, raw nuts and seeds are the best choices.
There are some great supplements to take for heart health: Vitamin C, Vitamin E, CoQ10, Calcium-Magnesium, B6, B12, Folic Acid and Hawthorne Berries are the best picks. If you are on blood thinners, talk to your doctor before taking Vitamin E and always talk to him about any supplements you are taking.
The three B Vitamins, B6, B12 and Folic Acid, are needed to reduce the Homocysteine levels in the blood. High Homocysteine has been linked with heart problems. CoQ10 is needed in the heart muscle and can get depleted with some prescription medication.
If you want to practice good heart health you must look at the whole picture and talk to your doctor.
