Nutraceuticals: vitamins and other nutrients in coronary heart disease.

Author information

  • 1Wesley and Greenslopes Private Hospitals, Brisbane, Australia.


Nutraceuticals and specifically vitamins, oils and herbs are increasingly being taken by patients. Some supplements may improve cardiovascular outcome, most are unproved, and some could potentially cause harm. Marine lipid supplementation needs to be considered in all patients who have manifest coronary heart disease. For most supplements more data are needed before confident recommendations can be made.
