COVID-19 & The Importance of Heart Health

Did you know that the leading cause of death in the U.S. is heart disease? Over one-third of the U.S. population has some form of cardiovascular disease. In August, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reconfirmed that those with pre-existing heart conditions are at an increased risk for COVID-19. Because of this, there has been a surge in seeking out heart healthy foods. 

Recently found in a survey conducted in April 2020, fiber, probiotics, dark green vegetables, antioxidants, and omega-3s were the top five benefits people began searching for when purchasing foods (Source: Hartman Group, Functional Food & Beverages and Supplements, 2020). Some have also turned to supplements to obtain these health benefits. Although supplements do not legally claim to cure, treat or prevent coronavirus or any other disease, according to the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN, 2020), 83% of users believe that supplements play an important role in helping to support health/wellness during COVID-19. Over 4 in 10 supplement users have positively changed their supplement routine since the pandemic began, and approximately 23% take a dietary supplement to support heart health specifically.

Consuming a variety of nutrients is extremely important for heart health. Some of the top 10 used dietary supplements this fall have been vitamin D, B-vitamins, magnesium, vitamin E, and omega-3 fatty acids (CRN, 2020).
