Ideally, a healthy heart should be maintained through healthy eating & exercise—but the typical diet does not always supply all the vitamins and minerals a body needs. So even in healthy people, multivitamins and other supplements may help prevent vitamin and mineral deficiencies and they can also help to protect against or manage certain heart diseases. The following list offers you a help in hand in choosing the right supplment for you, while pointing out the benefits in helping maintain a healthy heart.
Garlic: Lower Cholesterol & Blood Pressure
Garlic helps maintain a healthy heart, and a healthy immune system. It is important for cardiovascular health because it helps to regulate blood pressure and balance cholesterol levels in the blood. It also helps preserve an easy flow of blood through our bodies by helping to maintain a normal degree of ‘stickiness’ in blood platelets.

Omega 3: For A Healthy Heart & Circulation
Fish is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids benefit the heart of healthy people, and those at high risk of — or who have — cardiovascular disease. Research has shown that omega-3 fatty acids decrease risk of arrhythmias (abnormal heartbeats), which can lead to sudden death. Omega-3 fatty acids also decrease triglyceride levels, slow growth rate of atherosclerotic plaque, and lowers blood pressure (slightly).

Ginkgo Biloba: For Circulation
Ginkgo biloba helps to maintain a healthy blood circulation and an easy flow of blood throughout our bodies by helping to maintain a normal degree of stickiness in blood platelets. It is also important for the elasticity of blood vessels, helping the muscles in the blood vessels to stay relaxed.

Hawthorn: For Cholesterol/Circulation
Hawthorn is an excellent heart tonic that also supports a healthy circulatory system and lowers cholesterol and blood pressure. The extract of hawthorn increases blood flow to the heart muscle itself, helping to reduce the risk of heart attack due to lack of blood flow to the heart. Hawthorn has also been shown to improve the circulation of the heart, increase cardiac performance and steady the heartbeat.
