Conditionally essential nutrients (CENs) are organic compounds that are ordinarily produced by the body in amounts sufficient to meet its physiological requirements. However, in disorders, such as cardiovascular disease (CVD), and in other physiologically stressful conditions, their biosynthesis may be inadequate. Under these circumstances, CENs become essential nutrients, comparable to vitamins. The CENs of primary importance in CVD, based on the quantity and quality of human clinical studies… Expand
Micronutrient deficiencies an unmet need in heart failure.
TLDR
A review of the existing HF literature with respect to supplementation trials of key micronutrients involved in cardiac metabolism: coenzyme Q10, l-carnitine, thiamine, and amino acids, including taurine is summarized. Expand
Co-enzyme Q10 supplementation for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
The outcomes of interest were CVD clinical events and major CVD risk factors, adverse effects and costs, and four trials that investigated CoQ10 supplementation in patients on statin therapy showed that simultaneous administration of Co Q10 did not significantly influence lipid levels or systolic blood pressure. Expand
The management of conditioned nutritional requirements in heart failure
TLDR
It is believed that conditioned nutritional requirements, if unsatisfied, contribute to myocyte dysfunction and loss; thus, restoration of nutritional deficiencies should be part of the overall therapeutic strategy for patients with congestive heart failure. Expand
Coenzyme Q-10 in Human Health: Supporting Evidence?
Abstract Coenzyme Q-10 (CoQ10) is a widely used alternative medication or dietary supplement and one of its roles is as an antioxidant. It naturally functions as a coenzyme and component of oxidativeExpand
Effects of amino acid supplementation on myocardial cell damage and cardiac function in diabetes.
TLDR
It is suggested that dietary supplementation of taurine attenuates diabetes-induced changes in cardiac contractile function and ultrastructure without any alterations in plasma lipid and glucose levels. Expand
Nutritional Management of Cardiovascular Complications Caused by Diabetes
TLDR
This chapter is intended to highlight the impact of the nutritional experience of the developing fetus and describe the role of epigenetics and maternal nutrition on the risk of developing diabetes and cardiovascular complications. Expand
Enhanced aerobic exercise performance in women by a combination of three mineral Chelates plus two conditionally essential nutrients
TLDR
A combination of certain mineral complexes plus two CENs improved aerobic exercise performance in fit young adult women. Expand
Coenzyme Q 10 supplementation reduces oxidative stress and increase antioxidant enzyme activity in patients with coronary artery disease
Objective: The purpose of this studywas to investigate the effect of coenzymeQ10 supplementation on oxidative stress and antioxidant enzyme activity in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD).Expand
An Unmet Need in Heart Failure
Heart failure (HF) is a common, disabling, and costly disease. Despite major advances in medical therapy, morbidityand mortality remain high, in part because current pharmacological regimens may notExpand
Disruption of the Nitric Oxide Signaling System in Diabetes
TLDR
The purpose of this chapter is to review current information about the disruption of this important signaling system especially in the context of diabetes. Expand

Perspectives on therapy of cardiovascular diseases with oenzyme Q10 (Ubiquinone)
TLDR
Double-blind placebo-controlled trials have definitely confirmed that coenzyme Q10 has a place as adjunctive treatment in heart failure with beneficial effects on the clinical outcome, the patients' physical activity, and their quality of life. Expand
The benefits of ribose in cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
Ribose, a naturally occurring sugar, has been extensively investigated, both in animal and clinical studies, as an agent to enhance the recovery of these depressed energy compounds and should be considered as a potential agent in the treatment of ischemic cardiovascular disease. Expand
Vascular effects of dietary L-arginine supplementation.
TLDR
The results of studies of oral L-arginine supplementation on atherosclerotic lesion formation, as well as markers of endothelial function (e.g. macrophage function, platelet aggregation and adhesion, and in vitro vascular ring studies) are summarized. Expand
Use of alternative pharmacotherapy in management of cardiovascular diseases.
TLDR
Antioxidants have not been consistently proven beneficial in reducing cardiovascular mortality and the benefits of APs as part of the treatment for CVD are controversial. Expand
Carnitine and its derivatives in cardiovascular disease.

TLDR
The carnitines have been, and are being used in a spectrum of diseases including multiple cardiovascular conditions, including angina, acute myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, peripheral vascular disease, dyslipidemia and diabetes. Expand
Influence of L-carnitine and its derivatives on myocardial metabolism and function in ischemic heart disease and during cardiopulmonary bypass.
TLDR
Beneficial effects of carnitine supplementation have been demonstrated under a variety of clinical conditions such as acute cardiac ischemia, during extracorporeal circulation, in Carnitine-dependent cardiomyopathy as well as in patients with chronic circulatory failure and in cardiogenic shock.

Evidence is discussed that puts in question the widely held belief that adult mammals, including human beings, can meet all of their arginine needs by endogenous synthesis. Arginine, used inExpand
Nutritional supplementation with MyoVive repletes essential cardiac myocyte nutrients and reduces left ventricular size in patients with left ventricular dysfunction.
TLDR
Supporting patients with a nutritional supplement that contained carnitine, CoQ10, and taurine would result in higher myocardial levels of these nutrients and improve left ventricular function and the risk of death for surgical revascularization is related to preoperativeleft ventricular end-diastolic volume.

Coenzyme Q10 and cardiovascular disease: a review.

  • 2002
TLDR
It appears that levels of coenzyme Q10 are decreased during therapy with HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, gemfibrozil, Adriamycin, and certain beta blockers, but because of its low toxicity it may be appropriate to recommend coen enzyme Q10 to select patients as an adjunct to conventional treatment. Expand
Dietary L-arginine supplementation normalizes platelet aggregation in hypercholesterolemic humans.
TLDR
This double-blinded, placebo-controlled study demonstrates that dietary supplementation with L-arginine can modestly attenuate the increased platelet reactivity seen in hypercholesterolemic patients and restores endogenous nitric oxide activity and inhibits platelet aggregation. Expand
