Cardiovascular disease is the #1 killer of both men and women in the United States today, but that doesn’t have to be the case, says HealthyAnswers.com. In one of their recent health alerts, HealthyAnswers.com explained the key to keeping a healthy heart is to include the best heart nutrients in the diet several times a week.
HealthyAnswers.com resident medical expert, Mark Rosenberg, M.D., explains, “A variety of specific nutrients have different jobs that keep the heart healthy. These nutrients can come from whole foods or from extracts in supplement form. These nutrients include powerhouses like: Omega-3 and ALA essential fatty acids which perform the vital function of cooling inflammation throughout the body. Heart researchers have recently found that inflammation is one of the biggest factors that create the risky arterial plaques of cardiovascular disease.
Another supernutrient group are the B vitamins, particularly folic acid, B12 and niacin. B12 and folic acid – help decrease dangerous homocysteine that can form blood clots; niacin helps reduce “bad” LDL cholesterol.
Antioxidants – particularly vitamins C, E – help fight free radicals that can damage cellular DNA. Co-Q10 is another that helps energize the mitochondria “power centers” of your cells to keep them functioning at a healthy level.”
