Our heart health is at much greater risk as we age, with congenital and inherited diseases, angina, heart attacks, failures, and abnormal rhythms all more common into and beyond our 50s and 60s. Often problems can strike unexpectedly and in fact, over half of all deaths attributed to serious heart disease occur without any history of related symptoms. Nevertheless, there is much we can do to promote heart health long before encountering any problems, and even to support the healthy functioning of our hearts after negative symptoms have occurred.
Alongside sensible eating, regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle, there are many suitable dietary supplements. Of these, essential fatty acids in Omega-3 and 6, including docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and gamma linolenic acid (GLA) are considered particularly beneficial for helping to prevent heart disease. Certain plant extracts have also been found to be effective at lowering LDL (“bad”) cholesterol by up to 20%. Green tea has long been considered beneficial for a range of ailments including heart disease due to its high polyphenol content, and is available as a concentrated extracted, while vitamins, such as vitamin E, are also thought beneficial for the support of heart health.
