A recent survey conducted by Cleveland Clinic, Abu Dhabi reported that 55% of the respondents of the survey have been directly affected by health diseases. When a figure reaches such a number, it is concerning. Most heart diseases result due to high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes, and all these factors are in turn affected by an unhealthy lifestyle. Therefore, being physically active, eating healthy foods, maintaining a healthy weight, and also reducing stress are a few important lifestyle changes that can greatly help.
The role of supplements to a healthy heart is still debatable, however, according to some experts supplements when used as part of an overall heart health plan that includes a healthy diet, regular exercise, and good sleep habits, can truly extend healthy living.
To add to a healthy heart lifestyle, the following 5 supplements may contribute very well
Research shows that Omega 3 has heart-protective benefits, it doesn’t only reduce the risk of heart diseases but also is used to treat hyperlipidemia (High Cholesterol) and hypertension (High Blood Pressure). The Bioglan Red Krill Capsule 1000 mg contains Omega 3, DHA, and EPA which may be used to lower hyperlipidemia, and Bioglan Calamari Gold 500 mg also with Omega 3, DHA, and EPA for keeping the heart happy.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
According to research published in JACC Journals, Patients who took CoQ10 supplements three times a day for two years had fewer hospital stays and it lowered the cardiovascular mortality rate. CoQ10 helps protect against inflammations and may reduce muscular pains in patients on statins (Cholesterol-Lowering Medicines). Levels of CoQ10 tend to drop in older adults and hence need to be supplemented. The Bioglan Stat-Guard is a food supplement combining the 3 essential nutrients (CoQ10, Vitamin E & Zinc) which are often depleted by Statins. Its unique formulation contains Magnesium & Vitamin B1 as well, which help contribute to normal energy production.
Vitamin D has been in the limelight for its potential role in preventing cardiovascular diseases and health issues that lead to cardiovascular diseases. Several studies also indicate that low levels of Vitamin D may also result in increased risks of heart disease, stroke, hypertension, and diabetes. Bioglan Vitamin D provides 1000 IU of Vitamin D which is excellent for daily maintenance of Vitamin D levels, however, in case of deficiency it’s better to take higher doses of Vitamin D like the Vitabalans DMax which provides 4000 IU.
For decades Niacin has been used to improve cholesterol levels. Maintaining cholesterol levels is important for a healthy heart and also prevents the development of any serious heart condition. Studies have shown that Niacin (nicotinic acid, vitamin B3) was considered a promising candidate to prevent cardiovascular disease because it is known to lower cholesterol in the blood. Vitabalanas BMax contains 35 mg of Niacin, whereas Jarrow Formulas B-right contains around 25mg of Niacin. Both the formulas are present in B-Complex combinations with other B-Vitamins which are great for the heart and overall health.
Research shows that there is an association between low levels of magnesium or magnesium intake and an increase in cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, magnesium independently contributes to lowering blood pressure and reduces the risk of heart attacks. Bioglan Active Magnesium is high strength magnesium with 375 mg of Magnesium (Elemental) excellent to maintain muscle function and provides optimum quantity to meet a heart health regime.
