What Nutrients Do I Need To Support Heart Health?

wp_featuredimage_hearthealth02

Understanding the role of nutrition in heart health and cardiovascular function is one of the most important issues facing the health sciences today.

Cardiovascular health issues are on rise both in the United States and worldwide, and there is broad agreement within nutrition science that vitamins and minerals play significant roles in heart health.

What Vitamins and Minerals Are Important?

  • Multivitamins

A 2010 study of more than 30,000 women aged 49-83 years old found that women who took a multivitamin were significantly less likely to experience cardiovascular health issues. Taking multivitamins long-term, for over 5 years, was linked even more strongly to reduced cardiovascular health issues.

  • Vitamin C

An analysis of prospective studies including more than 290,000 adults who were followed for an average of ten years found that those who took more than 700 mg/day of supplemental vitamin C were 25% less likely to have cardiovascular health issues than those who did not.

  • Vitamin D

A new 2012 study, the largest such study to date, found that low levels of vitamin D were linked to 40% higher risk of serious heart health issues, and 81% higher risk of death from heart health issues. Data also suggest that the current recommended intakes of vitamin D are too low.

  • B vitamins

Although further research is needed, several large observational studies have shown an association between low vitamin B6, B12, and/or folic acid with an increased likelihood of cardiovascular health issues.

  • Magnesium

Recent research suggests that large doses of magnesium may improve blood vessel function in individuals with cardiovascular issues; supplementation has been shown to improve the dilation response of arteries, reduce measures of the propensity of blood to clot, and support healthy heart rhythm.

  • The Amino Acid  L-Arginine

Most experimental and clinical studies show a beneficial effect of L-arginine on blood vessel and cardiovascular function.

  • CoQ10

CoQ10 is highly concentrated in heart cells because of the high energy requirements of the heart muscle, and people with heart issues are often found to have a CoQ10 deficiency.

Can Medications for Heart Health Deplete Nutrients?

Yes, many drugs commonly prescribed for cardiovascular health issues can increase requirements of important nutrients.

Diuretics can remove water-soluble vitamins like vitamin C and B vitamins, as well as minerals like magnesium and potassium. Beta-blockers and statin can deplete the body of CoQ10.
