Nutrition and 9 important nutrients the Heart need.
It is horrendous to see the many people who are suffering from a heart condition during their young to middle-age life. Although many babies are born with heart conditions, because it is not a tradition, it causes one to wonder whether the lifestyle or the nutrition is responsible for all of this problem.
I am one who is concerned about my health. In addition to that, when I move around and visit health institutions my concern grows even stronger. Mind you, I am not a healthcare- personnel. The impact that the sight of suffering people has on me prevented me greatly from becoming active in health care.

However, I am a writer, who is now involved in affiliate marketing. I have given myself to Nutrition as a Niche where I will write content in relation to health so that people with some of these health issues can re-think about their nutrition and the impact it can have on their health.
I use the opportunity to specify the organs and glands of the body as to which nutrients will prove beneficial to each organ and gland if consumed regularly enough. Starting with the heart, which I called the engine of the body. This post is a follow-up to the previous one. Here we go!
The heart needs coenzyme (Q10)
Due to the fact that the heart is an all-year-twenty-four-seven worker that never takes a vacation, and beats approximately eighty-six thousand four hundred times a day, every day of the week, every week of the month and every month of the year. The heart needs energy to carry on its functions. Coenzyme (Q10) (Coe Q10) is the machinery that literally ‘recharges’ the energy production batteries of the heart, known as the mitochondria in the cells. Which is needed to generate cellular energy.
The cells use ATP to power everything you need to do. ATP is needed to pump blood throughout the body, burn fat in the body, digest the foods you eat, cause your eyes to blink. As a matter of fact; every normal operation in your body is triggered by ATP; which is made possible by Co Q 10
Pantethine is the active form of Pantothenic acid, which is the most important component of Co Q 10. Some research recommends its use for lowering high cholesterol levels. Pantheism is a proprietary form of Pantethine that has been clinically studied and shows to help promote healthy cholesterol levels.
Omega 3 fatty acids may decrease triglycerides, lower blood pressure and slightly reduce blood clotting, as well as decrease the risk of stroke and heart failure. Thus reducing irregular heartbeat.
Omega 3 fatty acids are found in plant food such as flax seed oil as well as in animal food such as cold water fish. There are many research on Flax Seed Oil for some other disease of the body, but in this article we are concentrating on the heart. Many researchers focus on the benefit of fish oil for the heart, Fish has been proven to reduce the risk of getting a heart attack or a stroke.
It has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity and help to reduce sudden cardiac death. If you are like me, you will notice that omega 3 is highly anti-inflammatory, everyone knows that inflammation causes promote and amplifies every degenerative disease in the body.
Including heart disease. Low levels of omega 3s are connected to everything from heart disease to ADHD that gives reason to recommend omega 3s supplements for every member of the family including the children.
Magnesium is an ‘anti-stress’ nutrient. It functions like a relaxer. It dilates the arteries, which interns lowers the blood pressure that relaxes the heart from being over-worked. As it becomes easier for the heart to manage its workload of pumping blood stress becomes slower thus improves sleep.
Magnesium helps to lower blood sugar, which is which has been a major concern of metabolic syndrome, and diabetics both of which increase the risk of heart disease. Some surveys show that no one gets enough magnesium.
However, one fun and easy way to get more magnesium is to include more magnesium in your bath, using magnesium as a bath salt or as a powder or flakes. You should ensure the bath water is warm.
Niacin is known to have lower cholesterol as also LP (a) which is a risk factor for heart disease and heart attacks, it raises HDL cholesterol to be more specific HDL-2 which is most beneficial of the HDL subclasses. Niacin Flush is a side effect of taking an overdose of niacin supplements cc is uncomfortable but harmless. It appears as a flush of red on the skin, which may be accompanied by an itching or burning sensation. As a supplement, Niacin is used to treat high cholesterol levels.
D-Ribbed is another component of ATP that is the cellular energy molecular you might have read about earlier. Without D- Ribose, you have got no ATP neither have you got any energy for body function including metabolic functions. If the heart becomes stressed it will not make enough D-Ribose to replace lost energy, why? Because the D-Ribose stored in the body are tissue specifics; the D-Ribose stored in the cells are ready to energize the heart, thus allowing the heart to continue its function.
L-Carnitine is an amino acid that is needed to transport fats into the Mitochondria, a place in the body cells where fats is turned into energy. If L-Carnitine is missing or non-functional then there will be no fats transported to the mitochondria for energy production thus resulting in an abnormal heart function.
There are many studies that have shown that normal heart function depends solely on the active L-Carnitine amino acid taking fats to the mitochondria for energy production, which will improve heart function as also cause reduction in symptoms of congestive heart failures
Vitamin K may help keep blood pressure normal and prevent mineral built up in the arteries. Clean arteries allow the heart to pump blood freely through the body. The built up of mineral in the arteries occurs naturally with ageing, it is a major risk factor for heart disease.
Which is an extract from the bitter citrus fruit, otherwise called Bitter and Sweet Orange was shown to reduce cholesterol levels in some recent human studies. Bergamot raised the good cholesterol by removing fatty deposits from the liver and lowering blood sugar levels.
