Will Supplements or Vitamins Help Fight Heart Disease?

Well, that's a very good question about the supplements and the homeopathic drugs. As you know that, over the last 20 years, actually we've seen many of the supplements come and go in terms of recommendations, if you recall, in the beginning it was vitamin E, then became homos, the folate, taking care of the homocysteine, then multi-vitamins.

And they all have gone through various phases, and coenzyme Q10, but it seems to me that they may not be beneficial, but definitely not harmful, but if anybody ask me, any patient that should I take the vitamins, I would say, yes. I would say that, vitamins and all these supplements actually are more important for patients who are vegetarian. If you are a non-vegetarian, and use dairy products I would say,

very probably get all these supplements in your nutrition, but if you are vegetarian, taking supplements, vitamin supplements 2-3 times a week will definitely be advisable.
