Study: Nutrient Combo Proven to Prevent Death by Heart Attack

  • Take these two pills every day to prevent death by heart disease
  • Even after 10 years, these incredible nutrients could still be working hard to protect your heart
  • Measurable results from supplementing have never been so clear. Find out more… 

Dear Living Well Daily,

“So you’re telling me all I have to do is take these two pills every day and I can cheat death? Turn up the Motown, it’s time to party!”

My friend Cynthia was recently warned by her cardiologist that she is at risk for heart attack and stroke due to her age and recent diagnosis of heart disease.

Cynthia, who’s one of the most active older people I know, truly has the spirit of a teenager. At 71 years old, she still teaches high school full time, maintains a giant garden, hosts social events and dances to her favorite Motown jams while doing the dishes every night.

So the news that her life might be hindered or cut short by heart attack or stroke devastated her.

And of course, her doctor gave her the same old spiel about what she should do to increase her heart health — stop eating red meat, take all these expensive pills, go on more walks, etc.… But what he didn’t tell her was there’s an easy way to cheat death from heart disease.

You see, groundbreaking research reveals that Cynthia, and anyone who suffers from heart disease, may be able to cheat death by taking two supplements.

But what’s even more incredible — these heart-protective supplements can also protect you for years after you stop taking them.

--A Simple Protocol

This research, a double-blinded controlled trial, was published in the journal PLOS ONE. It focused on the effect of two powerful antioxidants — selenium and CoQ10 — on the risk of death caused by heart disease.

The study participants included 433 elderly folks living in rural Sweden. The subjects were given a 200 mg dose of CoQ10 and a 200 mcg dose of selenium daily, or a placebo. These supplements were given, along with their regular medications, for four consecutive years.

At the end of four years, the participants were taken off the supplements, but were monitored for cardiac-related deaths for the next 10 years.

It’s in these 10 years that researchers found the most amazing results.

For the 10 years after ending the selenium and CoQ10 supplementation, folks (including those with diabetes and increased cardiovascular risk) saw a drastic decline in the risk of death from a heart disease when compared to those who took the placebo.

This means that just four years of taking the supplements protected them for the next 10 years!

The reason CoQ10 and selenium work so well to fight heart disease is because they’re strong opponents of oxidative stress and inflammation. It’s thought that increased inflammation and oxidative stress can add to the progression of heart disease.

--Keep Your Heart

These results are impressive. Many times, supplement studies only show improvements in certain markers of health, like cholesterol or inflammation levels. But they fail to show whether people actually live longer from taking the supplement. However, in this instance, there is a clear, positive result for those taking the selenium and CoQ10 protocol — reduced risk of death by heart disease.

This mean, by duplicating the supplementation regime, you too could be protected.

Since there is a decline in your ability to absorb nutrients from your diet with age, supplementing with selenium and CoQ10 may lead to stronger results for elderly people, as it did in this study. However, adults at any age can use this supplement combo to start protecting their hearts now.

Cynthia has started using these two supplements and is hoping to cheat death and keep on dancing to her Motown records.

Live well,
