The World Health Organization (WHO) states that 17.9 million people die each year of cardiovascular diseases and this figure is set to rise to 26 million by 2030. WHO also estimates more than 80% of premature heart attacks and strokes are preventable by adopting a healthy diet and addressing other lifestyle factors.

Phytonutrients such as resveratrol, lycopene and astaxanthin are often used for their therapeutic benefits for the cardiovascular system, along with coenzyme Q10, omega-3 fatty acids and D-Ribose.

Nutrients essential for heart health

Omega-3

Within the omega-3 family, EPA and DHA are important for heart health by helping to maintain normal blood triglycerides and blood pressure and contributing to the normal function of the heart.

Coenzyme Q10

CoQ10 functions as a coenzyme in the energy producing mitochondrial pathways and the heart muscle uses significant quantities.

Coenzyme Q10

Magnesium

Low blood levels of magnesium are associated with an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. Magnesium contributes to electrolyte balance and normal muscle function.

D-Ribose

D-Ribose is the main building block of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is the body’s primary source of energy for cellular processes. Vital organs such as the heart need to replenish ATP quickly to perform optimally.
