Let’s talk about the most important vitamin for the heart. I believe vitamin E is the most important vitamin for the heart. The type of vitamin E I like is called tocotrienols.
Wheat germ is the food that contains the most vitamin E. Wheat germ comes from wheat. Of course, wheat flour can be used to make things like bread, pasta, and cereal. But, vitamin E is oxidized in these foods, and when you consume them, you won’t actually get any vitamin E.
Instead, wheat flour products like these can deplete you of vitamin E. A deficiency in vitamin E can potentially lead to problems with the heart. Emotional stress may be the second most damaging thing to the heart.
Risks associated with a vitamin E deficiency can include:
• High blood pressure
• High lipids
• Atrial fibrillation
• Problems with the coronary artery (inflammation, high cholesterol, calcium plaquing, fibrous tissues, and clots)
