Safe Supplement Use
Don't take a supplement just because it’s labeled "heart healthy." Not all of them are guaranteed to help you, and it can be dangerous to get too much of some of them.
Pay attention to what the supplement does, and make sure you really need it. Ask your doctor which product is most likely to help. If you have a heart condition or for a high risk for a heart attack, you must follow your doctor's advice. It’s way too risky to try to treat a serious health condition on your own with over-the-counter supplements.
