  3. if you use fish oil, check that you have 3g EPA/DHA to get the maximum benefits.
    most capsules have about 180mg EPA/120mg DHA or something in it, so it would be 10 capsules for example.

    next point is that there should be a very balanced ration of EPA/DHA. some companies produce bull**** in the 1:5 ratio or so - thatís nonsense.

    also check, if you can find a product without vitamin e; it doesnt help with oxidation (companies claim that it helps but in real they are just adding it to have a later best before date to produce more at once!). it also may has some negative effects on the body and it has for sure not only one positive effect. its extremely senseless and maybe even harmful!

    fish oil should be stored in the fridge or freezer chest to make sure that it doesnít oxidate.

    imho fish oil is the best supp and the one with ****loads of research behind it, proving its effectiveness.

    i would recommend to search for some other products on google and check if its legit, backed up with science, on examine.com

    Yeah....for sure. I would hope everyone does this, I think it says to do so right on the bottles.

  7. ACEi or ARB
    let him go to a doc..

    do you think flaxseed oil is good for its omega 3 fatty acids?

    if so - sadly its not. its contains ALA which converts in the human body only to 4-6% into EPA/DHA. (these are the two fatty acids that are needed) and to get a good dose of them - the best dose is about 3g EPA/DHA - you will need way too much flaxseed oil.

    vegetable oils or vegetables in general are not sufficient to match a really healthy dose of EPA/DHA. if you dont eat ~200g of fatty salmon per day, i would highly recommend to supplement with a good and lab tested fish oil.

    it wouldn't hurt....I usually don't stockpile large amounts!!!

    another supp that I use regularly is SAMe.

    This is almost true, the exception being Algale oil which is very high in EPA/DHA. Its what I use.

  13. From my experience COQ10 is the best for cardiac aid. I know Iforce has a heart help sold @ mindandmuscle and MR supps sells premium powders COQ10 @ MRsupps.com. Personally I am currently using both.

    This guy gets it. Unsaturated fats are highly unstable, and are prone to oxidation. Fish oil is one of the worst because the length of time fish takes to be processed after caught. Always pop open a cap or two and do a sniff test. If it smells bad, take it back.

    Oxidized fish oil is no longer beneficial for your health, and instead is actually harmful.

    As for other supps, COQ10, Hawthorne Berry, etc

  15. Try Coenzyme Q10

  16. Vitamin c.
    Good digestion is always a good idea.

    Possibly vitamin K2 mk4, it may need to be balanced with other fat soluble vitamins.

    mk4 is actually not the right form, this gets hardly digested/the body cant use ist.

    you must buy mk7, and not the cis form but the all-trans form! if you have access, buy a microencapsulated version because vitamin k2 isnt that stable; generally this vitamin is moat of the time extremely underdosed or not even really in the product!

    so make sure to buy a reliable source!

    and the best is to take it together with your fish oil, vitamin d3

    I don't think this is true at all, vitamin k2 mk4 is a drug in Japan, and a successful one (glakay). The vitamin k that may be less absorbed is vitamin k1 (plants) which may be converted by bacteria to the effective vitamin k2 somewhere in the digestive tract. Vitamin k2 mk4 has no toxicity, I think mk7 has.

    I'm not sure why on earth people supplement fish oil, if one really wants PUFAs then he could eat fatty fish.

  19. With solidified cardiac issues, he shouldn't be mixing and matching pharmaceuticals and OTC supplements. Fish oil can thin the blood, I'd imagine he may already be on warfarin or something of similar nature. If he is taking alpha/beta blocker for its positive inotropic action, you don't want to be having him take supplements that may be metabolizes by the same enzymes the prescriptive drugs are metabolizes by like cyp2d6, or cyp2c6.. as you may lessen the effect of his medically perscribed medication. If he suffered a heart attack, his EF must be reduced to some extent, so with that being said.. I'd HIGHLY suggest Arjuna Extract.. as the number one addition to his mix..

    BUT.. you would have to check contraindications with any pharma meds he is taking

    Btw I don't recommend anything, just throwing in some ideas that the OP may find value looking into.

    What is Arjuna extract?

  22. You really need to be careful about any interactions, coq10 is safe and regarded as the best.
    Fresh pomegranate juice is great, but that can and will interact with come blood thinners.
    Statins can interact as well, anything with bromelain is a big nono.

    Garlic/d-ribose, alcar, lycopene, reservatrol there's plenty to choose from.

    I personally love krill oil, pricey but worth it.
    Ashwaghanda is a good adaptogenic, reduces stress, improves cholesterol levels.

  23. Vitamin K
    Citrus Bergamot
    Fish oil
    Co-Q 10 (ubquinol)

    Took my cholesterol down like 30pts and moved my HDL and LDL about the same in positive directions after 3 weeks

    Not all vitamin E is created equal. A synthetic single form of vitamin E is far different than a full spectrum natural source product like toco 8/palm fruit extract which is exteremely heart healthy and has loads of research supporting it

  25. L arginine does wonders..5g a day with 10k iu of liquid d3 is what I do to clean up the pipes of plaque
