However, a recent study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology reviewed 900 clinical trails and 27 different micronutrients found that three specific supplements offer the biggest positive impact on the heart: omega-3 fatty acids, folic acid, and the antioxidant coenzyme Q10.
"Research on micronutrient supplementation has mainly focused on the health effects of a single or a few vitamins and minerals," said Simin Liu, MD, MS MPH, ScD, professor of epidemiology and medicine at Brown University. Dr. Liu was a lead researcher for the study. "We decided to take a comprehensive and systematic approach to evaluate all the publicly available and accessible studies reporting all micronutrients, including phytochemicals and antioxidant supplements, and their effects on cardiovascular risk factors as well as multiple cardiovascular diseases."

CoQ10 can be taken as a nutritional supplement and is also found in foods such as broccoli and cauliflower, lentils, peanuts and other nuts, sesame seeds, spinach, vegetable oils and cold water fish such as salmon and tuna.
