Hi Sally,


Here are a few posts I recommend you review:


Omega 3's: How Much to Lower Cholesterol?
Heart Disease - Coenzyme Q10 - Should you be using this supplement?
Heart Disease - Do you need to supplement L-Carnitine?


I recommend being very caution with herbal remedies and be sure to discuss all supplements with your physician.


All the best,
