The heart is a muscle that requires a steady infusion of nutrients in order to function optimally. As we age the nutrient status of the heart diminishes and very few physicians pay attention to this critical issue. The aging process along with the nutrients that are depleted from the use and abuse of prescription medications can send the heart into “life support” if this situation is not corrected. During the course of this lecture the cardiac nutrients along with the correction of nutrient depletion states from a cardiac point of view will be discussed. Inotropic along with chronotropic nutrients will be reviewed and discussed in a clinical setting.
