Best tips on living HEART healthy

Twelve years ago when I was pregnant with my first daughter, I was told by my OB-GYN that my child would be born with a heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. Like any parent, I was scared! No one wants their child to hurt and the fear of the unknown can create a lot of stress and heartache. Thankfully after my daughter was born she had her heart repaired at 5 months old and her heart has been strong ever since. Even though her doctors have told us that she should be able to live a normal and healthy life, we still worry and always will. As parents, we want to do our best to be positive role models for our kids, so in an effort to help keep our daughter’s heart healthy we have chosen to change our lifestyle. I’d love to share with you how we choose to live heart healthy.

How we choose to live heart healthy

Changing your lifestyle is hard. It’s not something that can happen overnight and for my family, it is something that we struggle with every day. Making good choices is not always easy but we try our hardest. Here are some ways we choose to live heart healthy:

  • Get Up and Move: My husband and I have very busy days. When our work day is over we have kids and animals to take care of so we do not have a lot of time to fit in a daily workout. When we cannot workout, we try our best not to stay sedentary very long and set goals on getting things done around the house so that we are constantly active.  
  • Fresh Fruit and Vegetables: From carrot sticks to celery dipped in peanut butter, we have incorporated a lot of fresh vegetables and fruit into our diets. We make sure that the fruit and vegetables are washed, cut, and ready to eat on demand.
  • Portion Control: Controlling your portions can be hard for us, especially after a really good meal or when we choose to eat at a restaurant. Some ways that we try and control our portions is by putting away the leftovers before we sit down to eat our meal. In addition, when we eat at a restaurant, my husband and I will plate share or ask for a to-go box when our meal is served.
  • Regular Doctor Visits: Since we don’t always know what is going on inside of our body, we make and keep our annual doctor visits.
  • Supplements: For years, we have been taking Qunol Ultra CoQ10 because it is the #1 Cardiologist Recommended form** of CoQ10. It’s important for my husband and myself to take Qunol Ultra CoQ10 every day because it supports our heart and vascular health. It’s a great way for us to practice being heart healthy.


Every month my husband stops by Walgreens to pick up 2 bottles of Qunol Ultra CoQ10.


Qunol Ultra CoQ10 has 3 times better absorption than regular* CoQ10, 100% water and fat soluble and supports heart and vascular health, which is really important for heart health. In addition, CoQ10 is great for energy production and is a powerful antioxidant. It’s important to supplement your body’s natural production of CoQ10 because as we age the CoQ10 levels decline. Your CoQ10 levels also decline with stress.



Does your family choose to live heart healthy? What tips do you have for someone that is wanting to begin to live a healthier lifestyle? Have you incorporated CoQ10 into your daily regimen?


*Regular CoQ10 refers to unsolubilized Ubiquinone in oil suspensions in softgels and/or powder filled capsules/tablets.

**Form refers to Water and Fat soluble CoQ10. Source: AlphaImpactRx ProVoice Survey 2016
