Even though "failure" is in its name, when you experience heart failure, your heart doesn't just stop working at once. Heart failure happens when your heart can't pump enough blood throughout your body. This happens over time, as your heart grows weaker with each pump.
What are some symptoms of heart failure?
Some symptoms you should be aware of are congested lungs, fluid and water retention, dizziness, weakness, fatigue, and rapid or irregular heartbeat.
Is there a way you can lessen your heart failure symptoms?
Recently, research has found that you might be able to improve your heart failure symptoms with Co-enzyme Q10 (CoQ10). CoQ10 is an enzyme co-factor found within your body that is necessary for your cells' basic functions.
