Vitamins Keep Your Heart Fighting Fit
by Perry Stamide
heart. When cholesterol oxidizes, it's more able to stick to the sides of the arteries
and cause buildup and possible blockage that can lead to heart attacks and other
infarctions.

Doctors often recommend additional supplements of vitamin E. Or, they suggest you
include more foods rich in vitamin E in your diet. Nuts, like almonds, for example, are
a terrific way to get your daily dose of vitamin E.

Vitamin E also seems to be showing a lot of promise for those patients that have
already suffered a heart attack. The vitamin seems to prevent additional heart
attacks by encouraging the arteries to be more 'open' and less conducive to blockage.

Doctors are of the opinion that supplements of Vitamin C can help boost the effect of
Vitamin E and make it work even better. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps to
prevent the damaging effects of cholesterol, and at the same time it assists Vitamin E
in its beneficial effects.

If you take vitamins E and C together, you are on your way to creating a healthier
heart and better artery function. This is the easiest way to ensure the health of your
heart, especially if you have a history of heart disease or you are concerned about
the risk to your heart.

So how much should you take? Well, ideal doses may vary from patient to patient,
but 400IU (international units) of vitamin E seems to work well for most people.
Vitamin C is tolerable in higher doses without harmful effects. You can safely take
500miligram of vitamin C twice a day, mornings and evenings, to help keep your
heart fighting fit.

And studies are backing up this additional step in your day. Talk with your doctor in
case you are on any medications for there are some that will interact or need to be
taken at different times to be more effective.

A good, nutritious eating plan is the ideal way to get your daily doses of vitamins. But
taking additional supplements is sensible, and recommended and if you're trying to
boost your heart health.
