Top Picks for a Healthy Heart
Beth M. Ley, Ph.D.
Top Picks for a Healthy Heart

Heart disease is still one of our top killers in the U.S. affecting both men and women. Risk factors include cigarette smoking, high blood pressure and elevated LDL (bad) cholesterol. There can "injure" the heart, resulting in atheroscsclerosis, the buildup of fatty deposits in the inner walls of arteries, can develop. This narrows the arteries and increases the risk they'll become blocked.

Here are my top picks to prevent and reverse these risk factors:

Elevated Lipid Levels (Cholesterol/Triglycerides, etc.)
  1. Panethine - 2 to 3 capsules daily
  2. CoQ10 - 300 to 400 mg daily
  3. Omega-3 fatty acids - 3,000 mg daily or more. (Max DHA or Coromega)
  4. Red Yeast Rice Extract



High Blood Pressure
  1. Magnesium - 400 to 600 mg daily
  2. Coleous Forskohlii - 32 to 4 capsules daily
  3. Omega-3 fatty acids - 3,000 mg daily or more. (Max DHA or Coromega)
  4. Red Yeast Rice Extract



Stroke Prevention/Recovery
  1. Magnesium - 400 to 600 mg daily
  2. Coleous Forskohli - 32 to 4 capsules daily
  3. Omega-3 fatty acids - 3,000 mg daily or more. (Max DHA or Coromega)
  4. Red Yeast Rice Extract




The real culprit behind heart disease is silent inflammation occurring within the arteries in response to oxidative, or free radical, stress and other factors. Silent imflammation, primarily due to unhealthy lifestyle habits and environmental pollutants, including GM foods, is the primary cause of heart disease and many other degenerative conditions.

When the amount of free radicals in the body exceeds the body's resources to neatralize them, the immune system calls it forces into action, and inflammation results. Habitual (or those that seem "normal") behaviors or environmental exposures contributing to inflammation cause inflammation which becomes chronic. Lifestyle, then, plays a huge role in disease prevention.


Chronic Inflammation Reducers
  1. MSM - 4,000 to 12,000 mg daily
  2. Tumeric Phytosomes
  3. Omega-3 fatty acids
  4. Alpha Lipoic Acid - 600 to 1,200 mg daily
  5. Astaxanthin - 6 to 8 mg daily
  6. Resveratrol Synergy
