Vitamins for Cardiac patient
Hello, I hope everyone is keeping well. My father has been diagnosed with clogged arteries, he's awaiting triple bypass surgery, with the Covid-19 virus pandemic I'm very afraid for him, can anyone tell me, is there any vitamins he can use to help build his immune system? He doesn't smoke or drink, he doesn't have any health issues aside from the clogged arteries.

@eightieschild Welcome to connect a caring bunch of people.I had a triple by pass 24 yrs ago.Immune support vitamins C D3,zinc how old is your Dad might I ask.Vit.E also exercise and healthy diet. Good luck to your Dad .
Hello, he is 64, he cut out all dairy, gives him heartburn and hardly eats meat, more veggies, I want to make sure he can take vit c in conjunction with the other medications he's using, vastarel, gtn, aspirin, pantecta, and a few others I don't remember off hand.
@pamelacelia I would suggest talk to his Pharmacist, that's usually where even Doctors go when it comes to Meds working together.
@eightieschild Yes ask the Dr. After my surgery the Dr. told me to get of red meat so I didn't eat it for along time I do eat it occasionally now but lo fat in burger
Thanks I will
lioness, research selenium. and delta tocotrienol from annatto
@onamission I take a complete but min that has 100%all vit min in it but I,LL research it to see if I need more thanks
lioness, check the form of each vitamin and mineral in your 100%. B1 requires the enzymes created with magnesium to become active. If the form of magnesium is oxide you will absorb between 6 to 10 percent, not enough for adequate enzymes since it's also balancing calcium. There is an impressive list of benefits for Selenium, check it's effect on viruses, so the amount in multi's is minimal. A couple of Brazil nuts a day will serve you better. Dr Atkins in 1998 wrote Dr. Atkins Vita- Nutrient Solutions. It's on Amazon. It's easy to understand and guides the reader to better nutrition. You want to be sure each dollar spent on a product or food gives you a full return for your health. .
@onamission I will thanks. My by pass surgery is now 24 yrs old so I take very good care of this body.
Hello all, today is Friday morning 3/27/20 and I am on my way to a local urgent care as I have a urinary tract infection and possible the right kidney is affected as it is painful. Must be so very careful to prevent getting this Corona virus. I must take my chances because the last time I had a Urine Track infection it became septicemia so I must go. Need to be on antibiotics and whatever else. Will kiss my pets and be on my way.
