Scientists Figured Out Which Diets Are the Most Heart Healthy
Researchers from 12 institutions, including George Washington University School of Medicine and National Jewish Health, examined more than 25 studies in order to understand which diets were the most heart healthy. Their findings were published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Having analyzed the foregoing studies that in total included tens of thousands of participants, the scientists discovered that the most heart-healthy diet should include extra-virgin olive oil, antioxidant-rich berries, leafy greens, plant-based proteins, nuts (in moderation), and lean meats. The study authors recommend limit or eliminate coconut and palm oils, and eggs in order to cut down on cholesterol.
Dr. Andrew Freeman, Director of Cardiovascular Prevention and Wellness at National Jewish Health in Denver, US, explains: “Dietary requirement haven’t really changed. The diet that is the most cardioprotective is mostly plant based... predominantly fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and limited amounts of animal products if any.”
