    i think a well working heart is a major key to wellbeing ,productivity and sign of health. so how can we improve/heal a non optimally working heart without surgery? which are things to avoid, which are things to do?

    i read a study on young egypt males that the ejection fraction (EF) of the left ventricle in general is a good indicator of heart funtion. the average EF of healthy, non exercising males between age 18 and 35 was 68% (+-6%). i figured out mine was quit low with 65% (well trained years back) reaching only 60% now (not exercising). my ultrasounds didnt find any relevant muscle or valve-issues. an insufficient heart has an output of 55% EF or lower.

    Well, if you don't have any valve issues or wall thickening etc, then what do you want?

    The heart has an amazing ability to remodel itself, and it's constantly doing so.

    what is with coffeine? is it wise to spread out the say 200mg over the whole day? im afraid a big sinlge dose of caffeine might put too much stress on the heart

    Caffiene? I take probably 2,000mg a day. Once you have a tolerance, it's no big deal.

    okay,thyroid might have been an issue during my last echo. because i was like 6 month on 50mcg, and tapered to 25 with symptoms of hypo during examination. the cardiologist also mentioned thyroid is important for heart health and one should not play around with dosages. he also was strictly against testosterone usage.
    i used vitamin D daily since 2014 in dosages 1000IU and the last 6 months at 3000IU. is this to high without K2?

    RP says T3, aspirin, sugar are the most beneficial things for the heart. I think coffee too once you build a tolerance to the adrenaline effects
