Heart Health & Function Supplements

Heart Health Vitamins

Being proactive with your heart health can certainly help when you’re striving to support your overall health. Let Nature Made’s broad line of nutritional supplements help you with your heart health effort. Here’s a list of the key supplements to help support heart health and function.


CoQ10

What is it?
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a vitamin-like compound found in nearly every cell in your body. As a coenzyme, it helps facilitate important reactions.

What are the benefits?
Helps support heart function and cellular energy production.

How does it work?
CoQ10 works in the body in a variety of ways. CoQ10 is necessary for cellular energy production. CoQ10 exists inside the energy-producing part of the cell called the mitochondria where it facilitates the production of cellular energy from the food you eat. That cellular energy supports the basic functioning of cells of the body including the hardest working cells such as those found in the heart.


Fish Oil

What is it?
Fish oil provides the key omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA).

What are the benefits?
Fish oil helps support a healthy heart. The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are primarily found in fatty fish, such as salmon, halibut, and sardines. Omega-3s also help support cell membrane flexibility.

How does it work?
Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Omega-3 fatty acids also help support the structural integrity for cells by being incorporated into cell membranes.


CholestOff

What is it?
CholestOff is a proprietary combination of plant-based compounds called sterols and stanols, which are structurally similar to cholesterol.

What are the benefits?
CholestOff helps lower dietary cholesterol with plant sterols and stanols.††

How does it work?
Plant sterols and stanols help block the absorption of dietary cholesterol in the small intestine, inhibiting absorption of dietary cholesterol and reducing total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol. As part of the Therapeutic Lifestyle Change Guideline recommendations from the National Institute of Health, those with elevated cholesterol levels should consume two grams of plant sterols and stanols per day. Many Americans consume as little as 200 mg of plant sterols and stanols a day. Products containing at least 400 mg per serving of plant sterols and stanols, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily intake of at least 800 mg as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. One serving of CholestOff supplies 900 mg of plant sterols and stanols per serving for a daily intake of 1800 mg.
