What Supplements Support Heart Health?
Supplements to support heart health may contain one or several of the following:
Healthy living, which includes eating right, regular physical activity, and practicing other healthy habits, are all recommended by the American Heart Association as ways to promote heart health. Dietary supplements containing any of the aforementioned nutrients may also help. There is no one method for heart disease prevention; high blood pressure, poor circulation, and some cardiovascular diseases may sometimes result from heredity as well as other lifestyle factors.
Some Isotonix products promote a healthy heart, normal blood pressure, and regulated circulation through a powerful blend of essential nutrients delivered via a highly advanced isotonic solution. An isotonic, or “same pressure”, solution has the same chemical properties as the body’s fluids. Blood, plasma, and tears all have a certain concentration, or osmotic pressure, that allows for the consistent maintenance of body tissues.
Isotonix dietary supplements are transported into the body in an isotonic state, which allows them to be easily absorbed into the body and used in metabolism. When nutrients are delivered in an isotonic solution, the body has less work to do, and the maximum amount of nutrients are absorbed into the bloodstream.
This revolutionary delivery system, coupled with the powerful dosage of key ingredients, allows Isotonix products like OPC-3®, Calcium Plus, and Isotonix Activated B-Complex to promote strength in the heart’s muscles and the normal function of the circulatory system. So, which ingredients do the world’s most advanced nutraceuticals use to promote heart health? What parts of the body do they impact?

Understanding the Cardiovascular System
The cardiovascular system is made up of your body’s heart and circulatory system – the arteries and veins that carry blood throughout the body. This process is a vital function of our bodies, as blood both delivers nutrients and oxygen to our cells, and removes removes waste products. Blood itself plays a fascinating and complex role in our bodies, and you can learn more about that subject by reading our guide on blood health. When it comes to the circulatory system, however, it is important to know that arteries carry oxygen rich-blood from your heart, and veins carry oxygen depleted blood back to your heart.
The heart is a powerful muscle that pumps blood through the body. Within this process, the heart pumps blood to the lungs, where the blood is oxygenated and then delivered back to the heart so it can be circulated throughout the body. This oxygen-rich blood is circulated through arteries to our organs and other body parts, and once the oxygen has been used, veins carry the blood back to the heart to be oxygenated again. The process of circulation continues in, well, a circular way.
The cardiovascular system is complex and nuanced, with even more intricate components that can be explored at length. But now that we understand the primary functions of the cardiovascular system, it is clear how heart disease, circulatory issues, and other conditions can impact our bodies. Maintaining a healthy heart is an important part of our overall wellbeing.
Isotonix’s Best Heart Supplements*
When it comes to promoting heart health, the best dietary supplements use a combination of powerful ingredients to support the normal function of your cardiovascular system. This may include the regulation of the body’s heart beat, the support of normal blood pressure, and the maintenance of vascular health (that is, the health of your veins). If you’re looking for ways to supplement a heart healthy diet and an overall healthy level, we’d recommend any of the following products.
Isotonix’s bestselling OPC-3® is one of the most powerful antioxidant supplements on the market today, but it also promotes cardiovascular health. OPC-3® helps maintain healthy circulation by strengthening capillaries, arteries, and veins, and it also promotes healthy blood vessel dilation. Some OPC-3® ingredients that may support cardiovascular health include:
Red Wine Extract Is red wine good for you? Red wine extract is found in grape vines, roots, and seeds, and has powerful antioxidant properties. Red wine is rich in OPCs, or oligomeric proanthocyanidins, which are antioxidant compounds that occur naturally in grapes and other fruits. The red wine extract found in OPC-3® may help maintain healthy circulation by strengthening arteries, capillaries, and veins, protecting both the heart and blood vessels.
Bilberry Extract Bilberry is a fruit that is closely related to the blueberry, and bilberry benefits are derived from its high content of anthocyanins, a flavonoid pigment (more on that in a moment) that is also a powerful antioxidant. Bilberry extract supports healthy circulation by strengthening the circulatory system.
Citrus Extract The extract of citrus fruits is known to promote cardiovascular health because it contains bioflavonoids. What are bioflavonoids? Like those found in bilberries, bioflavonoids are antioxidants that act light filters in certain fruits. The color of different plants and fruits is based on the specific bioflavonoids they contain. Bioflavonoids have been found to play a key role in cardiovascular health and maintaining vascular integrity by strengthening arteries and veins.
Isotoninx Calcium Plus
While calcium is primarily attributed to bone health, Isotonix Calcium Plus also supports cardiovascular health. Calcium supports normal heart rhythm, but Calcium Plus also contains magnesium, which is an essential component of an effective calcium supplement. Magnesium, when combined with calcium, supports the heart muscle, and helps maintain a regular heartbeat and normal blood pressure.
Calcium Plus also contains potassium, which is an electrolyte stored in the muscles. Remember, the heart is a muscle, and the benefits of potassium include supporting the normal contraction of the heart muscle, thus promoting a normal heartbeat.
Isotonix’ Magnesium supplement also contains a combination of magnesium and potassium, to aide in the normal regulation of the heart and blood pressure. The magnesium found in this dietary supplement also supports healthier blood.
Isotonix Activated B Complex
Isotonix Activated B Complex contains active forms of vitamins B6, B12, and folic acid. The active forms of these vitamins help ensure the body receives their maximum benefits, as the body has to do less work in activating them.
Vitamin B12 is important to helping metabolize the amino acid, homocysteine. Maintaining a healthy level of homocysteine in the blood helps promote vascular health. Folic acid and vitamin B6 aide in this process. Activated B vitamins are also found in our Peak Performance Blend.
Vitamin D with K2
Vitamins D3 and K2 both help enhance the benefits of calcium, but vitamin K2 is especially important to cardiovascular health as it supports proper calcium utilization. Calcium is essential to bone health and cardiovascular health, and vitamin K2 helps ensure calcium is properly “utilized”; that it benefits both systems in adequate measures. Vitamin D3 also promotes the elasticity of blood vessels.
Isotonix Coenzyme Q10
Coenzyme Q10 (or CoQ10) is a nutrient that plays a vital role in the maintenance of our bodies’ overall health. It provides antioxidant protection for the cardiovascular system, and also enhances traditional support of the cardiovascular system. CoQ10 benefits are shown to be especially helpful in maintaining a healthy heart. Isotonix CoQ10 supplement also includes vitamin E and potassium, both of which support a healthy heart.
Many of the nutrients in these products are shown to have a positive impact on promoting normal heart health. Certain other Isotonix products combine some of these key ingredients, along with other essential nutrients, to provide a wide range of benefits. The Isotonix Multivitamin, for instance contains vitamins B6, B12, and folic acid, as well as vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Our Multi-Mineral also contains calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
The Optimal Wellness Kit combines three separate products – our Activated B Complex, Isotonix Multivitamin, and Heart Health Essential Omega III Fish Oil with Vitamin E – to deliver an even more comprehensive suite of cardiovascular health supplements. In addition to the benefits of various benefits, fish oil supplements promote healthy blood pressure levels, normal blood flow, overall cardiovascular health, and normal cholesterol levels.
The Heart Health Essential supplement is extracted from some of the best fish to produce a clean and safe product that is rich in nutrients and of some of the highest quality.
