MagazineJune 2007 (Vol. 18 Issue 3)Supplements for heart problems

As well as lifestyle changes you can make, you canalso reduce your risk of heart failure and illness by taking dailysupplements

As well as lifestyle changes you can make, you can also reduce your risk of heart failure and illness by taking daily supplements. The following could be part of your daily regime:

  • Vitamin E (400 IU/day) to neutralise 'bad' LDL cholesterol
  • Vitamin C (at least 1 g/day) to maintain healthy blood vessels
  • A multivitamin rich in the other antioxidants (such as vitamin A and selenium, which may help with any statin-induced damage) plus an evening supplement of zinc
  • L-Carnitine, a non-essential amino acid (1-4 g/day), which increases 'good' HDL cholesterol, and helps improve tolerance to exercise
  • Magnesium, the heart mineral, which may reduce cardiovascular spasm
  • Chondroitin (1500 mg/day), which can 'dramatically' reduce the risk of heart attack
  • Brewer's yeast (2 tsp/day) contains chromium and lowers cholesterol
  • Psyllium (5-10 g/day) lowers LDL by almost 10 per cent
  • Fenugreek seed powder (25-50 g/day) can increase HDL
