Many doctors subscribe to the belief that nutrition has no impact on health, but most people see that this is clearly false. Nutrition affects all aspects of health, particularly that of the heart. Here are some of the relationships between proper nutrition and heart health.
Nutrients, like coenzyme Q10, B vitamins, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and sodium are used to provide energy to the heart. With poor energy availability, the heart has to work harder, pumps blood less efficiently and results in poor tissue oxygenation. Over time, this can lead to heart disease.
