Here is a detailed list of natural home remedies to help you after suffering a heart attack (myocardial infarction or MI). Because a MI permanently damages some part of your heart muscle, the use of prescription medications may be unavoidable during the early stage of treatment.

Natural Remedies for Prevention and Treatment of Heart Attack

Natural Remedy What experts say about them
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10 or Q10) leaf logo plant natural remedies herb herbal (What's this?)

Coenzyme will improve the heart muscle function and lower high blood pressure at the same time.

Dose: Take a dose of 100 mg to 200 mg daily. Higher doses can be used with minimal side effects or danger.

L-carnitine leaf logo plant natural remedies herb herbal

The mitochondria, the cell's powerhouse found inside practically all cells, needs carnitine (an amino acid) to function properly.

Clinical studies show that it reduces symptoms of angina (chest pain) and helps with treating congestive heart failure. Studies also show that taking carnitine improves the chance of surviving a MI.

Dose: Take 4 to 6 grams (divided up into two or three doses) daily.

L-Arginine leaf logo plant natural remedies herb herbal

Arginine is shown to help with angina (chest pain) by dilating the coronary blood vessels (through releasing nitric oxide).

Research found that it works better when combined with vitamin C.

It also helps with treating congestive heart failure (CHF) and protects the heart muscle from further injuries.

Dose: Take 2 to 7 gram up to three times daily.

Policosanol leaf logo plant natural remedies herb herbal

Policosanol is shown to reduce angina (chest pain) and improve maximum oxygen uptake. It also reduces the risk of blood clots (by thinning the blood a bit) like what Aspirin does.

Dose: Take 5 to 40 mg daily.

Vitamins & Minerals for Prevention and Treatment of Heart Attack

Vitamins & Fruits What experts say about them
Magnesium leaf logo plant natural remedies herb herbal

Magnesium is shown to reduce the symptoms of angina. It is also lowered blood pressure significantly.

Dosage: Take 600 mg to 1,000 mg daily. This will ensure that you are no deficient.

Note: If you currently take a combined calcium/magnesium supplement, check the amount of magnesium in the pill. You may not need to take additional magnesium.
Vitamin C leaf logo plant natural remedies herb herbal

Clinical studies seem to show that taking vitamin C can offer protection against suffering a MI. This is especially true if you are low in vitamin C. It is a powerful antioxidant.

A clinical study showed that combining vitamin C with arginine helped to reduce the symptoms of angina (chest pain).

Dosage: Take 1 gram daily. Studies showed that this is more than enough.

Note: Higher doses do not show better heart protection (although there is no significant danger in taking more than 1 gram daily).

We assume that you have or are working on controlling your high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and making lifestyle changes. If you smoke, you must find a way to stop. Smoking will do damage that no supplements can ever counteract.
