Heart Health Protocol

Cardiovascular health is not just a matter of lowering cholesterol. Over the years I’ve helped you sort out the latest legitimate breakthroughs from the pervasive BS, but the basic Intelligent Medicine philosophy remains – promoting heart health is a combination of diet and lifestyle, along with a reasonable regimen of supplementation.

While the Intelligent Medicine Starter Kit provides a good foundation for health, those looking to improve their heart health in particular will benefit from additional focused supplementation. I’m confident that if you take these faithfully you’re sure to minimize your heart risk!

Heart Health Protocol CORE supplements:

Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract (take one, twice daily) is well-studied for its ability to optimize blood pressure and stave off arterial calcification.

Since insulin resistance plays such an important role in the progression of heart disease, I couldn’t resist adding my favorite blood sugar regulator CM Core (take one, twice daily), which contains berberine, a proven insulin sensitizer.

MK 7 vitamin K2 (take one, twice daily) has demonstrable heart-protective effects.

Olive leaf (take one, twice daily) delivers beneficial polyphenols that protect the arterial lining. 

Berkeley Life nitric oxide support supplements (take two capsules daily)  provide the dietary nitrate equivalent of seven ounces of beets, and can support cardiovascular health, maintain healthy blood pressure levels, and improve overall circulation.

Heart Health Protocol BOOSTER supplements:

I included Bergamot BPF (take two, twice daily) which, in addition to its anti-inflammatory properties, has been shown to improve lipid profiles.  

Since B vitamins lower homocysteine, a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, I added Homocysteine Factors (take one, twice daily) to the list. 

Magnesium taurate (take one, twice daily),  and the Omega 3s in Vital Nutrients Ultra Pure® fish oil (one capsule with each meal) also have heart-protective effects. 

Like CORE supplement olive leaf, resveratrol (take one, twice daily) also delivers beneficial polyphenols. 

Ubiquinol (take one, twice daily) is essential for heart function, and may be depleted in patients taking statins.
