Ideally, you should take at most 500mg of vitamin C, and 400 IU or around 268 mg of vitamin E daily.
Another of the vitamins to strengthen heart health is vitamin D. It has been found to help regulate blood pressure3, and a deficiency in vitamin D has been linked by certain studies to an increased risk of heart attacks.
Good sources of vitamin D are milk, yogurt, cheese, red meat, egg yolks, and liver.
Also known as folic acid, vitamin B9 has been found to help strengthen heart health4. However, this has only been found through population studies, and more research needs to be done regarding its effects on the heart.
Still, folic acid is an important vitamin which you can get from broccoli, brussels sprouts, as well as green leafy vegetables.
Vitamin B12, found in meat, fish, and dairy, can help reduce a person’s risk for heart disease. This is because some studies have found that a deficiency in vitamin B12 has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease. However, a more direct link has yet to be established.
