Heart Healthy Supplements

Over the 21 years that I've been researching heart palpitations, I've covered a lot of ground.  Once I realized that over 90% of palpitations are related to digestive issues, I had some focus and direction. To that end, I experimented with a wide range of supplements in search for the perfect combination of nutrients that would return my body to its normal state of health. While the list below is fairly long, I do not take all of the supplements all of the time.  Like food substances, they are in my pantry and I take them on an ad-hoc basis depending upon my needs. 

I hope to write an article about each one of these supplements. But since this is not a full time job, but more of a passion, I'll get to that as I find time.

Chlorella and Spirulina

Think of Chlorella and Spirulina as the “janitors” in your blood stream.  There is a reason that nuclear power stations use spirulina filters in their effluent stacks!  Spirulina will digest a ton of waste products that might be found in your blood stream. I think of this products as my disinfectant for the blood.  I don't take it every single day. I treat it like a food and will take some for a few days, then maybe nothing for a day or two.  I consume it randomly.  It's cheap enough here on Amazon. Try it for a month. If you feel nothing, then don't buy more.

When most people think of magnesium, the run to their pharmacy or health store and buy magnesium. However, there is a huge difference in what kind of magnesium you should use.  Re-Mag isa nano-sized magnesium that is more fully absorbed into your body. Other brands of magnesium will often just cause diarrhea.  Re-mag make all the difference for me.

Bacopa monnieri, a plant commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine, has an age-old reputation for being an effective and powerful herb helpful for memory and combating stress. Bacopa monnieri, known to most as Brahmi, acts as an adaptogen; which means it helps the body adapt to new or stressful situations. I use it several times a week and find it to be highly relaxing.  This can be important if anxiety is associated with heart palpitations.

Scientists have known about the important role of NAD since 1906. Since then, they’ve learned NAD is found in every living cell, and that it fuels the mitochondria, which keeps almost every tissue in the body healthy. In 2004, a landmark study by Dr. Charles Brenner discovered that a unique form of vitamin B3 called nicotinamide riboside (NR) could increase NAD levels to support cellular health. Now with Dr. Brenner as our Chief Scientific Advisor, we’re bringing this patented and quality reviewed NR to everyone as NIAGEN™.

I continue to test this one, so the jury is still out on its effectiveness.  Also, It is a premium product that costs a fair bit.  I'm looking at other supplements to increase Glutathione and Nitrous Oxide as a means of achieving the same results.

Blue-green algae refers to several species of bacteria that produce blue-green colored pigments. They grow in salt water and some large fresh water lakes. They have been used for food for several centuries in Mexico and some African countries. They have been sold as a supplement in the US since the late 1970s. This Brand is a unique algae found only in the very cold Klamath Lake, Oregon.

Blue-green algae products are sometimes used by mouth as a protein supplement and for treating high blood pressure. Blue-green algae products are also used by mouth for many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

The POWER of Ubiquinol: Introducing an extraordinary advancement in dietary science- Ubiquinol (also known as Kaneka Ubiquinol) is the active antioxidant form of CoQ10 that is more efficient, more potent and better suited for those with advanced need or advanced age.

Ubiquinol vs CoQ10: Conventional CoQ10 supplements provide a compound commonly called Ubiquinone, which must be reduced to its active metabolite Ubiquinol in order to be used by the body. Experts have always believed that the best way to supplement this coenzyme would be in its active form Ubiquinol, but until recently, manufacturers had been unable to produce a stable ingredient. That's where the scientists at Kaneka come in. After 10 years of painstaking research, Kaneka developed a patented process to stabilize Ubiquinol so it is properly assimilated by the body.
