Health is created when all the pieces fit together.

In this interview, Jolie Root discusses the synergy of omega-3, vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 for cardiovascular support. These nutrients support cardiovascular health and more!

Omega-3s are found in fatty fish, such as salmon, mackerel, and sardines. Since many of us don’t eat a lot of fish in our diet, a supplement can be a great option. Omega-3s support heart, brain, vision, joint, mood, immune, and skin health.

Vitamin D3 is an important nutrient linked to many health benefits, including bone, teeth, muscle, and immune health. It’s a vitamin we can get through food and the sun, but many are still deficient due to changing seasons, sun protection, and skin tone.

Vitamin K2 as MK-7 plays an important role in binding calcium to the bone matrix. It also supports healthy blood clotting and cardiovascular system health. Many of us do not get enough MK-7 through diet alone, since the best food sources are organ meats and fermented soybean products.

As always, Jolie discusses the importance of healthy diet and lifestyle as the foundations of good health.

Additional heart healthy supplements – Vitamin E is an important antioxidant that promotes cardiovascular health. CoQ10 is another important antioxidant and fat-soluble vitamin that our bodies produce, and it is highly concentrated in our heart muscle. Magnesium is a mineral that promotes relaxation and heart health. (Note: for those who may be on heart medications, check with your practitioner before you introduce new nutritional supplements into your diet.)
