      Maria,
      Thanks for watching the show. As far as supplements go, the ones with the most-proven benefits are:
      1. fish oil, 2000mg per day
      2. vitamin D3, about 2000u per day, then adjust to get vitamin D blood level less than 50
      3. aspirin, 81mg, if you have at least one risk factor for heart disease like high cholesterol, or high blood pressure, smoking, obesity or tobacco use
      4. Co Q 10, 200mg day, if you take “statins” for cholesterol or if you have muscle cramps. or weak heart muscle

      As far as vitamin E, lecithin, foiic acid, multivitamins, beta carotene and biotin, there is little evidence to support their use.

      As far as the cholesterol is concerned, it is very high and it needs to be addressed by diet and exercise, you may want to get en EBCT heart scan to see if you have coronary plaque (coronary calcium); if you do have plaque, you should have your cholesterol treated with medications. You can view our show on EBCT heart scans which we discussed on another segment, “The importance of heart CT scans,” http://drsantora.com/2012/12/the-importance‚Ķheart-ct-scans/.

      Dr. Santora
