Vitamin D deficiency is a common cause of problems in Coronary Heart Disease.
Your body requires 1000iu/daily/vitamin D3 for each 25lbs you weigh.
Improving Vitamin D levels improves the ability of all muscles to function optimally.
You need a 25(OH)D around 60ng/ml or 150nmol/l.
2 of these 5000iu for the next 2~3 months then one daily but check 25(OH)D from time to time to ensure you are about right.

Magnesium works alongside vitamin D and also has an important role in heart function. however it's important to use a form that is highly absorbed like albion mineral chelate or Magnesium Malate the form to avoid is magnesium oxide only 4% of which is absorbed. You will often find it included in magnesium blends because it is cheap it forms the bulk of most. 10mg/daily magnesium for each 1kg you weigh.

There is also good evidence that omega 3 helps heart health. However those using high strength omega 3 have to understand that omega 6 from industrially processed vegetable and seed oils like corn, soy, sunflower, safflower actively displace omega 3 from it's position in cells. It follows if you want to benefit from omega 3 you must at the same time reduce omega 6 sources from your diet. Not just avoid omega 6 oils for frying you also need to check they aren't in your salad dressing or mayonnaise. around 2g omega 3 daily EPA+ DHA is probably required. one with each meal

Consider also a low carbohydrate diet. These are best for reducing weight and the less you weigh the less work the heart does. Being in ketosis helps improve mitochondrial function and this will improve energy metabolism. You may also find using Coconut oil or MCT oil is helpful in improving lean body mass, reducing appetite and improving heart, lung , brain function.

I use IHERB because their shipping charge to UK is cheapest. Depending on where you live Vitacost, Amazon, Swanson's may be as cheap. Code WAB666 saves you $5 at IHerb.

CoEnzyme Q10 is the best supplement you can take for your heart.

You will need very high dosage, like 100 to 200 mg 2 to 3 times a day depending on how severe your condition is. There is a ton of research out on how this supplement can increase ejection fraction, signficiantly.

I would also look into Dr Schultz herbal heart support formula. It is a powerful supplement to nourish the heart and I strongly support it.

I agree with this. Here's some research that shows it to be true.
Coenzyme Q10; an adjunctive therapy for congestive heart failure?
Quote:
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is essential for electron transport within the mitochondria and hence for ATP generation and cellular energy production. We recently demonstrated that plasma levels of CoQ10 are an independent predictor of survival in a cohort of 236 patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) followed for a median of 2.69 years ............ Several intervention studies have been undertaken with CoQ10 in CHF, including randomized controlled trials with mostly positive outcomes in relation to improvement in plasma levels of CoQ10. A meta-analysis showed that CoQ10 resulted in an improvement in ejection fraction of 3.7% and the mean increase in cardiac output was 0.28 L/minute. In a subgroup analysis, studies with patients not taking ACE inhibitors found a 6.7% increase in ejection fraction
I seem to remember that Swanson's do pretty good prices on Co Q 10

It is important to purchase a good quality coenzyme Q10. It should be in a liposmal oil base such as http://www.gotbody.com/public/b_SHOP...MG$JARQ30.aspx (read description at bottom of link page) and then there is another form called Idebenone that studies have been done on that is highly effective.

I have not seen any comparative studies on the two products. I have frequently found smartnutrition's recommendations to be sound, and there have been several studies done on the Qsorb form of CoQ10, so you might try one then the other when it is gone to see how you respond to the two different products. I would give at least a 2 month trial for each product and see how your energy levels go but if you take Schultz herbal heart tonic it may be hard to tell where your improvement is coming from. I would expect more rapid results from the herbal but I think they will all work together nicely for an improved state of health.


http://www.smartnutrition.info/JamesSouth-idebenone.htm

Why Idebenone is superior to Co Q10
Enter Idebenone to the rescue! Studies have shown that under the same cellular low oxygen conditions that cause Co Q10 to act as a pro-oxidant producer of damaging free radicals, Idebenone prevents the free radical dam-age and maintains relatively normal cell ATP levels. In short, while Idebenone can effectively substitute for Co Q10's positive and life essential functions, it doesn't have Co Q10's free radical producing and energy crashing "dark side" which occurs under hypoxic (low oxygen) conditions.
Idebenone's potential benefits fall into five categories; antiaging, energy enhancement, cognition enhancement, organ protector and protector against excitatory amino acid neurotoxicity.
