Heart disease is called a silent killer because you don’t feel if your blood pressure is high or if your vessels are starting to build up with plaque and narrow. But you can decrease your risk of getting heart disease.

Check with your doctor before starting any programs. Know your base line on your target numbers. A simple blood test will give the details you need.

“I am approaching 65 and my recent blood work indicates the critical components have increased. Many factors can cause this rise; age, genetics, diet and lifestyle.

I admit, I haven’t been exercising as well as I should and I need to take a closer look at my diet. Before I jump into taking prescription medications, I really first want to look at what supplements might benefit me and help lower my numbers safely.”

Live a Heart Healthy Life Starting Today! J’s Top 3 Picks

Here are 3 supplements our about-to-turn-65 specialist, “J” is taking to stay on track and help improve her target numbers.

1. Fish Oil

Fish Oil promotes cardiovascular health and provides the all important Omega-3s.

Fish body oil is the only major source of the polyunsaturated Omega 3’s EPA and DHA for healthy cardiovascular function

The American Heart Association recommends eating at least two servings of fish (particularly fatty fish) a week. Each serving is 3.5 ounce cooked, or about ¾ cup of flaked fish. Fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, herring, lake trout, sardines and albacore tuna are high in omega-3 fatty acids.

Increasing omega-3 fatty acid consumption through foods is preferable. However, those with coronary artery disease, may not get enough omega-3 by diet alone.

“J” chose Carlson Labs Super Omega-3 Fish Oil Bonus Pack.  It’s a great value, as it comes with a bonus bottle of 30 Softgels.  It is fresh, fully potent and free of detrimental levels of mercury, cadmium, lead, PCB’s and 28 other contaminants

2. Co Q-10

Coenzyme Q-10 performs several important health supporting roles in the body and provides antioxidant support.

“J” opted for Bluebonnet Nutrition Cellular Active CoQ10 Ubiquinol 100 mg.  She chose this product with Ubiquinol for quicker absorption. Ubiquinol and accounts for the largest percentage of CoQ10 found in the heart.

 
3. Lower your cholesterol
