Heart Disease & Hypertension: Vitamin Therapy for a Healthy Heart by Bryant Lusk is an educational self-help book with the aim of preventing, curbing, managing, and reducing high blood pressure and cardiovascular trouble. Over the course of twenty-seven chapters, Lusk introduces the reader to the heart, what it does, its health, and what happens when we do and do not take care of this vital organ. This foundational information is detailed and comprehensive, making the subsequent chapters on vitamin therapy easy to digest. Lusk provides fact-based findings on the benefits of supplements such as catechins, zinc, omega-3 fatty acids, iodine, and many other forms of vitamin therapy. The book also contains tables, figures, and a vast amount of resources.

My mother died from a heart attack at a fairly young age and as far as any of us knew, she did not have any pre-existing conditions. Or at least none she told us about. Heart Disease & Hypertension is the book I wish I'd had eight years ago, as I have no doubt that the steps that are so thoroughly pointed out by Bryant Lusk could have saved a life. But it is not too late for me, and it is not too late for any reader even if they are advanced in the deterioration of heart health. Most of the advice is easy to implement and the inclusion of an actual schedule takes this a step further. I also appreciate that spiritual health is mentioned in an inclusive way and the clickbait and articles that say vitamins are useless are tackled head-on. I don't know a single reader who would not benefit from Lusk's expertise and I am grateful to have found this book. Better late than never, right? Very highly recommended.

Bryant Lusk is keenly aware that people typically will not keep up with a complicated routine. Therefore, in Heart Disease and Hypertension: Vitamin Therapy for a Healthy Heart, he offers small steps to achieve a healthy heart. Heart disease is a killer, and Bryant wants to save lives. Therefore, he has authored this book covering heart disease and preventing or reversing it. While there are myriads of medications one can purchase from a pharmacy, Bryant recommends natural healing from mineral and vitamin supplements (or, more importantly—food). The twenty-seven chapters cover everything anyone would want to know about using supplements. The book starts with a good discussion of the heart and its work. Bryant also includes different types of heart diseases. After making sure the reader understands the problem, Bryant dedicates the rest of the book to answers.

If you had the choice of taking chemicals or natural substances to take care of your heart, which would you choose? Of course, if you are like most people, you probably will choose natural remedies. That is the course for proper heart care that Bryant Lusk presents in Heart Disease and Hypertension: Vitamin Therapy for a Healthy Heart. In each chapter covering one supplement, the reader will find a host of helpful information. He discusses what each vitamin or mineral is beneficial for, how to take it, how much to take, interactions with food or other minerals, and so forth. Bryant writes in language that is easy for the layman to understand. Even when he is being technical, he explains all he writes. As a result, I now have more information at my fingertips concerning vitamins and minerals than I have had in studying them for better health for the past 15 years.
