Design of Wellness Company's Healthy Heart Supplement
Cardiomyocytes Have Specific Nutrient Demands
By Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH
The Wellness Company Healthy Heart product is recommended in my cardiology practice since heart patients have specific nutrient demands that can be optimized by oral supplementation. In the setting of strain and illness, the micronutrient environment can be the difference-maker in optimization of symptoms and full recovery of function.
As the Chief Scientific Officer of the Wellness Company, I had input into the design of the Healthy Heart Supplement. At the Wellness Company we always want you to do your own research before making your choice of nutraceuticals and supplements. If anything we have learned from the pandemic, we cannot trust government authorities to tell us the truth, we must learn for ourselves and develop trust in doctors who have had the courage to stand up to the false narrative.
-Vitamin B1 (thiamine) deficiency in the extreme state leads to dysfunction of cardiovascular system, commonly known as wet beriberi. This tends to present as acute decompensated heart failure and also with signs of hyperdynamic circulation. Patients on diuretics lose thiamine through the urine.
-Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) research shows that people with low blood levels of vitamin B6 have almost double the risk of getting heart disease compared to those with higher B6 levels. Conversely those with higher B6 concentrations have lesser rates of heart disease.
-Folate supplementation reduces homocysteine and enables a variety of important cellular functions including vascular endothelial function.
-Vitamin B7 (Biotin) production is decreased in the gut in obese patients and this can be a source of oxidative stress and increased senescence of cardiomyocytes.
-Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) is important for cardiac energy metabolism since it is the precursor for Coenzyme A (CoA) which is required in the catabolism of all types of substrates.
-Selenium is a necessary cofactor for cardiomyocyte function. In my practice I recommend a daily intake of 200 mcg per day. So Heart Support complements Spike Support, both contain Selenium.
-D-ribose supplementation could improve mitochondrial function by increasing ATP and enhancing cardiac performance for patients with heart failure. There is a recently completed clinical trial with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction patients that indicates D-ribose increases ATP production and improves cardiac ejection fraction.
-L-Taurine may protect both the heart and the major blood vessels from damage during ischemia where there is insufficient delivery of oxygen (eg heart attack).
-L-Carnitine may play a role in nutritional supplementation in heart failure. It also have favorable effects on lowering blood lipids modestly.
-Coenzyme Q10 (Ubiquinone) supplementation reduces mortality in heart failure and death to to cardiovascular causes.
As you can see Healthy Heart leverages the broad salutary effect of B-vitamins on the heart. It is complemented strategically by well-tolerated products that play potential and demonstrated roles in reducing the incidence of cardiovascular events particularly among those with myocardial dysfunction. That group may now be quite large given two thirds of the world has been given cardiotoxic COVID-19 vaccines.
