Supplements You Can Take to Heart
Making some lifestyle adjustments can help support heart health, such as eating a healthy diet, engaging in regular
exercise, maintaining a healthy body weight and managing stress. Consider adding heart-healthy supplements to your
Omega- 3 fatty acids: Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) omega- 3 fatty acids help
support a healthy heart.† EPA and DHA are primarily found in fatty fish, such as salmon, halibut and sardines. The
American Heart Association (AHA) recommends at least two servings of fatty fish per week1, which equates to 500 mg
EPA and DHA daily.
2 However, the average American adult only consumes approximately 86 mg/day of EPA and DHA.
For individuals who do not consume the recommended intake of fatty fish, a fish-oil supplement can help fill that nutrient gap.
Phytosterols: Phytosterols, or plant sterols and stanols, can help support heart health by reducing the absorption of
dietary cholesterol into the bloodstream.† The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) notes in its phytosterols health
claim that “products containing at least 400 mg per serving of plant sterols and stanols, eaten twice a day with meals for a
daily intake of at least 800 mg as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.”
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10): A fat-soluble “vitamin-like” substance, CoQ10 is found in most of the cells in our bodies,
primarily in the energy-producing part of cells (mitochondria), and helps produce cellular energy from food we eat.† The
highest concentrations of CoQ10 are found in the hardest-working cells, including the heart, making it important for heart function.†

of fatty fish per week.
