Dr. Ali’s Top Seven Heart Nutrients
Majid Ali, M.D.
Following are my top seven nutrient choices for heart health. As for my all other clinical guidelines, it is important for readers to make their doctors aware of these guidelines if they choose to consider it. In a companion article, I present my top seven spices and herbs for heart health.
I offer detailed information about heart health and reversal of coronary heart disease in my free “Dr. Ali’s Heart Course.” I also offer a DVD and a video seminar entitled “Heart Diseases or Overdriven” available at www.aliacademy.org)
The doses included are rather modest. For my patients I usually prescribe larger doses. I suggest that readers read “Dr. Ali=s Start‑Low‑Build‑Slow Principle” given below to learn how I advise my patients to slowly and safely increase the nutrient doses.
Seven Heart Nutrients
- Magnesium 750 to 1,000 mg
- Coenzyme Q10 100 to 300 mg
- Taurine 500 to 1,000 mg
- Lecithin granules 2 teaspoons three times a week*
- Vitamin C 1,500 to 2,000 mg.
- Vitamin B Complex One tablet
- Multimineral One tablet
I also prescribe arginine and carnitine in modest doses of 250 mg each daily, and these may be added to the program.
*Lecithin is best taken as a component of Dr. Ali’s Spicy Breakfast (recipes at www.alihealing.org)

Dr. Ali’s Start‑Low‑Build‑Slow Principle
In all guidelines for natural remedies for preserving health and reversing chronic diseases, I strongly advise readers to follow my Start‑Low‑Build‑Slow Principle. Simply stated, this principle requires that an individual in trying natural remedies be cautious and closely observe how the body responds to natural remedies, beginning with small amounts or portions of remedies (as low as one‑tenth the value on the first day, and doubling them every day until the recommended dose is reached). If any negative senses are experienced, the item should be discontinued or taken in smaller amounts for longer periods of time to increase tolerance. It is important that a doctor be consulted to rule out the presence of serious coexisting or underlying conditions.
