In brief: Some are
Fish is good but may contain mercury.
Garlic and black tea are beneficial. Folic acid, vitamin b6, vitamin b12, vitamin c, & vitamin d have no benefit in heart disease. Vitamin e and carotene are not beneficial and some studies have found harm. The jury is out on coenzyme q10 and ginseng. The best, most consistently good, most natural remedy is regular exercise and maintaining normal body weight.
