In brief: Herbs and CM

There are no clinical studies in reputable journals that support the use of herbal supplements to treat coronary artery disease.

In brief: Not Directly

While several supplements are marketed to affect risk factors related to coronary artery disese (e.
g., weight loss, cholesterol reduction), none of these has been studied in clinical trials. Therefore, the impact of supplements on coronary artery disease is largely unknown. 1 gram of dha+epa daily has been shown to decrease sudden death due to arrhythmia, an effect not related to developing cad.

In brief: Questionable

There are claims but few validated.
So buyer beware as these are not regulated by the fda. Fish oil and resveritrol may be the best "natural" options. These are not substitutes for "traditional" medications.
