Heart Disease Symptoms, Prevention and Nutritional Supplements including Resveratrol

Symptoms

Researchers believe that chronic inflammation may be a contributing factor to heart disease. Inflammation can cause blood clotting, which can block the blood flow to your heart leading to heart disease and potentially a heart attack. There are many causes of hidden inflammation in our bodies:

  • Stress
  • Lack of sleep
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Poor diet

Heart Disease Prevention 

You can protect your body from the harmful effects of inflammation by taking specific supplements. The supplements listed below are believed to be highly beneficial for helping with chronic inflammation and heart disease and are recommended to be taken on a daily basis:

Nutritional Supplements

Resveratrol is a compound found in plants such as Japanese knotweed, blueberries, peanuts and red grape skins. Resveratrol Supplements has long been used for fighting the physical effects of aging. A new study shows it reduced inflammation of the heart in the study’s participants by 26%. Taking one 500 mg capsule of resveratrol daily with food is believed to help you maintain a strong healthy heart.

Fish Oil Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of unsaturated fatty acid that may reduce inflammation throughout the body. Multiple studies reveal that supplementing with omega-3-rich fish oil boosts production of pro-resolution molecules and quickly brings your body back to a non-inflamed state. Omega-3 fatty acids may decrease triglycerides, lower blood pressure, reduce blood clotting, decrease stroke and heart failure risk and reduce irregular heartbeats.

Many components of nutritional supplements and diet can have a potent effect on many of the risk factors for heart disease. Basic and applied research on a variety of dietary supplements has shown great promise for safe and effective management of cardiovascular risk factors.

There is a tremendous amount of variables in the way people respond to supplements. It’s recommended that you regularly check your cholesterol and blood pressure in order to determine what’s working and to help choose the optimal therapeutic dose for you.
