What’s at the heart of our health? Our heart, of course. That big, red, beating organ that brings life to every part of our body, pumping blood through our veins as it beats, sending oxygen and nutrients to all the right places and carrying away carbon dioxide and other nasties. There’s not much in our body that can function properly if our heart is not in top shape, but it can be hard to know whether our heart is healthy until something serious happens, so it’s important to keep looking after it to prevent problems rearing their unwanted and dangerous heads. The right balance of vitamins can help with heart health and circulation, which is key to a healthy lifestyle.
Health from the heart
When our heart is not functioning at its best, it can lead to high blood pressure and raised cholesterol levels, which can mean heart disease or even heart failure. We can feel breathless walking around the park, or even climbing the stairs at home. How can we work to keep our heart healthy? Healthy eating is important for optimising nutrition that keeps the heart healthy, but taking carefully tailored supplements can add an extra layer of protection to help keep everything ticking along nicely and to give us peace of mind.
Eat well for a happy heart
A healthy, balanced diet including citrus fruits, berries, nuts, seeds is crucial for heart health. Grab a banana or an orange or make a salad with tomatoes and spinach for extra potassium. Magnesium-rich foods include leafy green vegetables, nuts and seeds, and oily fish is great for vitamin D. For extra niacin, incorporate poultry, fish, lean meats and peanuts into your meals. But sometimes it’s hard to get the right quantities and balance of vitamins through food sources. This is where supplements can play a key role in our wellbeing.
How can supplements help?
Supplements can promote heart health by improving blood flow, lowering cholesterol and reducing inflammation, also reducing the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Although vitamin supplements alone cannot offer a cure for heart and circulation problems, they can support cardiovascular health, combatting potentially debilitating and dangerous issues from high blood pressure, or hypertension to high cholesterol and atherosclerosis.

Vitamins at the heart of the matter
For general heart health, vitamins B6, B12, and folic acid may help reduce levels of homocysteine, an amino acid associated with increased cardiovascular risk, and vitamin D deficiency may be associated with an increased risk of hypertension. Your heart may also need a little extra potassium to help lower blood pressure. Magnesium supplementation has also been associated with modest reductions in blood pressure.
For good cholesterol management we need niacin, and omega-3 can help reduce triglyceride levels and lower the risk of heart disease. Antioxidants (vitamin C and E) can help reduce oxidative stress and inflammation associated with atherosclerosis.
