We have received several comments expressing a concern on proper supplementation—which nutrients are important, the right dosage, getting the biggest bang for your buck, etc. When we developed a nutrient line with Dr. Sinatra, we asked ourselves the very same questions.

We (and Dr. Sinatra!) believe that the foundation for healthy heart nutrition lies first and foremost in a solid multinutrient. A good multivitamin and mineral formula should contain, among other nutrients, significant levels of antioxidants, calcium, vitamin D, magnesium, and folic acid.

And no cardiovascular nutrition advice would be complete without discussing fish oil. The omega-3s found in a high-quality fish oil are crucial for cardiovascular nutrition, promoting healthy blood pressure levels, good triglycerides, HDL/LDL cholesterol ratios, and more.

Lastly, given the time of year, you may also want to take nutrients that provide solid immune protection. A good immune product should contain a blend a nutrients, including quercetin, alpha lipoic acid, resveratrol, astaxanthin, and bromelain. Not only do many of these nutrients have heart benefits, but they also help to strengthen your immune system, as well as promote healthy aging.
