    Zinc and Heart Disease

    http://knowledgeofhealth.com/why-you...sit/#more-1546

    The provision of minerals plays a stronger role in saving lives from mortal heart attacks than any array of cardiac drugs including calcium blockers, beta blockers and statin cholesterol-lowering drugs.  Dietary fortification with major mineral electrolytes that control heart rhythm such as potassium and magnesium would save far more lives than statin drugs.
    There is more evidence that zinc can reduce mortality rates for coronary artery disease than there is for statin cholesterol-lowering drugs.  A recent analysis shows statin drugs only prevent non-mortal heart attacks.
    Zinc inhibits the formation of plaque (atherosclerosis) in the inner lining of arteries by virtue of its displacement of iron and reduced oxidation (hardening) of LDL cholesterol.
    Cholesterol lowering drugs actually reduce protective zinc blood levels.
    There is confusing science when it comes to understanding zinc and its ability to prevent atherosclerosis.  Failure to sort out that confusion has cost millions of lives.
    Mineral supplement users are often advised to maintain a zinc/copper balance (10 to 1?) so as not to raise circulating cholesterol levels.  Yet up to 45 milligrams of zinc has been used without accompanying copper without adverse effects.

    I take 30mg of zinc in addition to whatever is in my multivitamin.
