Heart nutrients and vitamins can fill in nutritional gaps in a heart healthy diet.
Antioxidant vitamins, supplements and nutrients have great value for our heart health. Everyone should take at least a high-quality multivitamin.
Supplements or heart vitamins are not a substitute for the whole foods that contain them. They don’t excuse you from eating a healthy diet.
Eat Real Food
There is so much information in the marketplace about vitamins and minerals that it’s hard to know what to take that might help our hearts and overall health.
One thing to keep in mind is that heart nutrients or supplements are only a partial representation of the natural vitamins, minerals, and protective compounds found in plants. In other words, eat the best foods that you can and include lots of vegetables and fruits, ie. plant-based foods. Then take a few supplemnents to further help protect your heart and your health.
Dr. Andrew Weil
It’s easy to be confused by the vast array of products on the market that are marketed to us for our hearts and our health. That’s why I recommend Dr. Andrew Weil as our best guide in this area.
Dr. Weil is one of the most knowledgeable and well-respected Doctors in the world. He founded the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine and almost single-handedly brought the term integrative medicine into our common language.
I’ve been reading his books for many years and have found them to be full of common sense and a wonderful understanding and explanations of the mechanismns of healing.
One of his key ideas is that the body can heal itself. It can do so because it has a healing system. We can help our own healing systems by eating well, excercising, taking care of our minds, nurturing our emotional health and and taking some good supplements.
Heart Nutrients and Supplements
Heart vitamins can play an important role in heart health according to Dr. Weil. Dr Weil has marketed his own line of vitamins and minerals for many years.
Now he has created the Vitamin Advisor to customize your vitamin and heart nutrient needs.
There’s a 4-step questionnaire that gives you a personalized, complete list of nutrients and supplements based on your lifestyle, diet, medications, and health concerns.
All their supplements are of the highest quality and that’s very important because the vitamin and supplement markets are not consistent in the quality produced for consumers.
The Vitamin advisor is free and with no-obligation. Fill out the simple questionnaire and get your own personalized recommendation for your nutritional needs.
