The publication of this review provides clear evidence that Dr. Rath’s discovery regarding the primary cause of heart failure is beginning to be accepted by the scientific mainstream.
As Dr. Rath explains in his groundbreaking book, ‘Why Animals Don’t Get Heart Attacks…But People Do!’, the primary cause of heart failure is a deficiency of the essential vitamins and other micronutrients that provide bioenergy to the cells of the heart. These cells are responsible for the contraction of the heart muscle and for the optimum pumping of blood into the circulation. Deficiencies of micronutrients impair the pumping performance of the heart, resulting in shortness of breath, edema, and fatigue.
The key micronutrients required for preventing and correcting heart failure include vitamin C, vitamin E, the B complex vitamins, L-carnitine, coenzyme Q10, and taurine. Use of these micronutrients in the correct dosages can dramatically improve the pumping performance of the heart, potentially removing the need for patients to undergo transplants.
