I'm Gene Millen, your host on this website with my wife Bernie.
In 1990, a six way heart bypass operation got my attention. It also sent me on a journey to find out what caused this near heart attack.
I wanted to determine which heart supplements I could take that would improve my cholesterol and lower risks of having a heart attack kor stroke.
Our personal favorite for improving cholesterol is Vital Life Nutritionals policosanol derived from sugar cane.
Policosanol has been proven safe in clinical trials of more than 30,000 persons!
Side effects of policosanol are rare and minimal.
In clinical studies LDL cholesterol levels typically drop by 25-30% during the first 8-12 weeks of therapy.
HDL cholesterol levels typically increase by 15 to 25% after only two months of use.
In the clinical studies the dosage ranged from 10 mg to 40 mg. We recommend the 20mg capsules as the researchers found that a 40 mg dose did not cause any side effects but the cholesterol lowering effect was not significantly better than taking 20 mg.
In Clinical trials the following results were achieved with a 20 mg per day dose of policosanol:
Policosanol 20 mg Extra Strength
This a convenient one a day capsule that is easy to swallow. It is recommended that it be taken in the evening as more cholesterol is produced at night.
So what product should you choose? It depends on your goals but the Policosanol Extra Strength is the best sellers. I've used all of these supplements with good results and don't hesitate to recommend them.
We only recommend the best heart supplements that we can find...ones that we and/or our family and friends personally use. Since my 6 way heart by pass operation in 1990 my wife Bernie and I take heart health nutrition very seriously.

Statin Drugs Can Rob
You of Co Q10!
If you are taking any of the statin family of drugs such as Vytorin, Lipitor, Crestor to lower your cholesterol you should not be without CoQ10.
Other drugs, such as beta blockers and some antidepressants, also interfere with Coenzyme Q10.
Taking cholesterol-lowering drugs can literally "kill" CoQ10 synthesis.
Omega 3 Heart Supplements are a
Must for Vital Heart and Brain Health!
What is Krill Oil and how is it superior to fish oil?
It might be time for you to change your oil. For years, the medical establishment touted fish as the ultimate heart healthy food, citing its abundance of omega-3s.There's just one problem: most of the fish you find in the stores and restaurants has been raised on a farm.That means the fish are fed a diet of fish flakes made from corn, cereal grains and other additives. This unnatural diet of Omega 6 food causes the salmon's omega-3 levels to plummet.
And that's just one of the many biological transformations they go through. Salmon and other fish raised in captivity are dramatically changed by the experience; the fish farmers have to inject them with an orange-colored dye to make their flesh look like real salmon. Trust me, this is not a good thing.
Krill Oil Benefits
Krill are shrimp-like invertebrates or crustaceans that are harvested from the icy Antarctic waters of the Southern Ocean.Krill Oil is the best source of omega-3 fatty acids for the maintenance of a vital heart and brain.
Unlike fish oil, the Omega-3 fatty acids in Krill Oil are absorbed and carried to the body's cells in phospholipid form.Phospholipids form the structural basis of cell membranes, so Phospholipids with Omega-3 fatty acids are easily recognized, absorbed and utilized by the body.Best of all, there is no fishy after-taste and the
softgels are a lot smaller and easy-to-swallow.
- Supports healthy cholesterol levels
- Supports the body's inflammation response and overall joint health
- Supports cognitive health, specifically focus and attention
- Helps support the management of the physical and emotional symptoms associated with PMS
- Has antioxidant properties greater than Vitamins A and E, Omega-3 Fish Oil, and CoQ10*
Hawthorn is a Heart Supplement
with a 7,000 Year History!
The story begins with archeologist's discovery of remnants of this amazing nutrient in pottery jars dating about 7,000 years before Christ.
Legend holds that the "Crown of Thorns" placed on Jesus? head was taken from a berry tree or bush which we know today as hawthorn.
Fast forward several millenniums to October 1896, when the New York Medical Journal published a report describing a secret treatment by a physician in Ennis, Ireland named
Dr. Green reportedly had developed a reputation for "curing" heart disease, but in the spirit of greed and selfishness, refused to share his discovery with his medical colleagues, or the rest of the world.
After his death in 1894 his daughter revealed that his "famous cure" was in fact a tincture of the ripe hawthorn berries.
Mark Stengler, N.D., who is known as The Natural Physician, says this about hawthorn benefits:
"I love to prescribe this powerful nutrient to patients. Most people begin feeling much better almost from the first instant they take it.
