As you know, maintaining healthy blood pressure is essential to heart health. A normal reading is a systolic pressure of less than 120 mmHg over a diastolic pressure of less than 80 mmHg. Keeping your blood pressure in the healthy range requires a heart-healthy diet and exercise—which your doctor no doubt has told you about.
What he or she may not have told you, however, is that there’s a “dynamic duo” of nutrients that also can help support those efforts—including Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10 supplements) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) omega-3.
How CoQ10 Supplements Promote Healthy Blood Pressure
CoQ10 supports healthy blood pressure by enhancing energy at the cellular level. This boost in energy enables the heart muscle to pump blood more efficiently, which is critical for healthy blood pressure.
The research I’ve seen on CoQ10 and blood pressure is extremely impressive. In a 12-week study of men and women, 60 mg of CoQ10 supplement taken twice daily helped to promote normal blood pressure by reducing systolic blood pressure. In another similar study, 50 mg of CoQ10 taken twice a day reduced both systolic and diastolic blood pressure in 10 weeks.
For Even Greater Blood Pressure Support, Add DHA Supplements
DHA omega-3 essential fatty acids are scientifically shown to support healthy blood pressure. To get your DHA, I recommend taking an omega-3 supplement that gives you 350 mg per day of DHA and 150 mg of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). Plus, you want to combine it with a good CoQ10 supplement, which is the combination I included in myOmega Q Plus® formula.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I can’t imagine practicing medicine, let alone cardiology, without CoQ10 supplements for blood pressure and omega-3s. Both are absolutely critical for a healthy heart, including healthy blood pressure.
Now it’s your turn: Have you found that CoQ10 and DHA supplements help your blood pressure?
