The right supplements can be beneficial to heart health. Dr. Feyrer-Melk relies on safe, evidence-based supplements to promote the natural care of her patients. These tested supplements are used either prior to starting prescription medication, or to enhance the use of prescription medication.
She has seen positive results in her patients through the use of many natural supplements, including red yeast rice, magnesium glycinate, ubiquinol, and sustained-release niacins, omega 3 fatty acids.

Omega-3 fatty acids have consistently been shown to improve heart health and are one of the most important supplements for the heart because of their anti-inflammatory agents. Inflammation is a common pathway for many diseases, including heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
Sustained-release niacins are a well-accepted treatment for high cholesterol and are effective in raising HDL and lowering triglycerides. Numerous studies have shown that niacin can significantly improve HDL cholesterol, and can also improve LDL levels, though less dramatically. Due to individual patient sensitivity, Dr. Feyrer-Melk compounds special, low-dose, sustained release Niacin in order to initiate the smallest tolerable doses of this important vitamin.
Red yeast rice has been shown to lower total and LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels, help prevent heart attack, and improve blood flow. Whether a red yeast rice supplement works or not depends on the formulation, and Dr. Feyrer-Melk’s regimen is specifically individualized to each patient’s needs.
Magnesium glycinate plays an important part in many body systems including heart health, cellular integrity, digestion, and the maintenance of bones and muscles. By helping to relax the smooth muscles inside blood vessels and arteries, magnesium can improve blood flow to the heart.
Ubiquinol is the nutrient essential for cellular energy function and is the key component in 95% of your body’s energy production. It delivers antioxidant protection, protects your heart and other organs from free radical damage, and is essential for heart health because it provides cellular energy to the heart – the organ in the body that requires the most energy to perform at its best.
Vitamin D3 works to support cardiovascular health, blood pressure, and reduce blood vessel inflammation.
