In brief: Yes
Many studies have shown that individuals that consume fewer calories, more fruits and vegetables and less saturated fats tend to have lower risks for cardiovascular disease.
Low-salt diets have also been recommended for people at risk for heart failure. Exercise, quitting smoking and limiting alcohol intake also helps reduce cardiovascular risk.

In brief: CoQ
Consider coq 10 supplementation in relatively higher doses.
Heart muscle depends heavily on mitochondria, and coq is very important in mitochondrial function. Eat coconut oil, and lots of organic vegetables.
