February is about all things having to do with the heart, this includes heart health. Every year 1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease in the United States. Additionally 1 in 3 adults in the U.S. has high blood cholesterol according to the CDC.
The best ways to support good heart health is with healthy day to day habits.
- Eat healthy
- Get enough sleep
- Care for your teeth
- Moderate alcohol
- Don’t smoke
In addition to these heart healthy habits there are also supplements that can help support heart health. There are many nutrients that research has shown are good for heart health but many people don’t get enough of these crucial nutrients. That’s why it’s important to supplement the daily diet with them.
These supplements also have many other benefits in addition to supporting heart health making them some of the most popular on the market.
So in honor of Heart Health month, here are the top private label supplements for heart health.
Coenzyme Q10 is commonly just called CoQ10 and is expected to reach $849.5 million in sales globally by 2020. It’s found in almost every cell of the body and it’s used to help convert food into energy. It can also act as a potent antioxidant helping to fight free-radicals. There are two forms of CoQ10, ubiquinone and ubiquinol. The body can actually make ubiquinol from ubiquinone and ubiquinone is the form typically found in supplements.
Ok, but what does any of this have to do with heart health? Well there have been a few studies that indicate promising results for CoQ10 supporting healthy cholesterol levels. It also shows promising results with reducing inflammatory biomarkers. CoQ10 might even be able to help support healthy blood pressure. All three of these factors can contribute to heart disease.
Benefits of CoQ10
- Fights inflammation
- Supports heart health
- Potent antioxidant
While many doctors assure us that thanks to fortified foods nutrient deficiencies are rare magnesium deficiency is relatively common. Even those that eat a balanced, healthy diet can find themselves with low levels of magnesium. Over farming often depletes soil of magnesium meaning that our food is also low in magnesium.
Despite our lack of magnesium, this mineral remains extremely important for our overall health. Magnesium is used in many, many areas of the body and in a variety of crucial ways, including for heart health among others. Researchers have found that low levels of magnesium can be a precursor of heart disease.
Other benefits of magnesium include…
- Calming and relaxing effect
- Supports healthy bones
- Natural sleep aid
- Joint support
Omega-3s are also one of the most popular supplements on the market by far. Nearly 20 percent of supplement users take an omega 3 supplement. It’s found in nuts, seeds, some oils and vegetables but it’s found in the highest quantities in fish. This is why omega-3 supplements are often just called fish oil supplements.
This heart healthy fatty acid is essential, meaning that the body needs omega-3 fats but it can’t make it. You have to get omega-3s from the foods you eat. Unfortunately the typical American diet is very low in omega-3s which makes supplementing with extra omega-3s very important.
In addition to being one of the most popular supplements omega-3 fatty acids are also one of the most researched. There are many studies about omega-3s that demonstrate the many benefits it can have concerning all different areas of health and heart health specifically.
Studies have been done that show omega-3s can help with…
- Blood pressure
- Good cholesterol
- Blood clots
