Question Vitamins for cerebral vascular/artery health...need advice!

Hi everyone. In March I was diagnosed with a "questionable" cerebral aneurysm measuring approximately 2 mm. The best neurosurgeon in my state reviewed my MRI films and sent me home with instructions to follow up in five years. Since then, I have been very anxious about this issue.

I have been researching about supplements that may reduce the risk of rupture. (See below) I first thought Vitamin E would be bad because of the bleeding risk, but my other doc told me to take it for fibrocystic breasts. Can I take grapeseed and Vitamin E together? Should I take all this stuff of just some of it? I just popped a Vitamin E tablet (200 IU). I had been taking Green Vibrance (a green powder supplement) until my OB pointed out that it contained a bunch of methylxanthines which can cause cystic breast issues.

Basically, I am looking for the most effective supplemetation plan for not only overall health but also the reduction of cerebral aneurysm rupture risk. I will surely feel better emotionally if I feel like I am doing something to reduce my risk factors.

Oh, has anyone heard of Hawthorne tree/berry supplements for this? Are they safe? Recommended? I'll take all the advice I can get! Below is the info I found on the website I was talking about:


To maintain cerebral vasculature, thus lowering the risk of a cerebral aneurysm or hemorrhagic stroke, the following supplements should be considered:

Magnesium, 1500 mg daily.
Arginine, 4-5 grams daily.
Calcium, 1000 mg daily.
Grape seed extract, two 200-mg capsules daily.

To enhance vasodilation and improve the health of vessels, consider the following:

Potassium, 500 mg daily.
Hydergine, 5-20 mg daily. (Hydergine may be obtained by prescription or from offshore pharmacies.)

Antioxidants scavenge free radicals and protect against underlying factors that lead to cerebral vascular disease:

Gamma E Tocopherol with Sesame Lignans, 1-2 softgels daily.
Vitamin C, 2000-5000 mg daily.
