Cereal fibre is consistently associated with lower inflammation compared with vegetable and fruit fibre, according to a recent US study assessing the relationship between dietary fibre, inflammation, and CVD incidence.
US researchers conducting a Cocoa Supplement and Multivitamin Outcomes Study (COSMOS) observed a 27% reduction in deaths from cardiovascular disease (CVD) in older adults treated with the extract, although there was no improvement in the death rate for...
No association was found between dietary choline and betaine intake with cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk, according to researchers at the Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences in Tehran, Iran.
A study that links higher intakes of raw, but not cooked, vegetables to lower cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk has been met with caution by critics who warn not to take its findings in isolation to determine future intake or frequency.
Consuming half a cup of walnuts daily is enough to lower "bad cholesterol" levels in healthy, older adults, according to a California Walnut Commission-funded study that appears in the journal Circulation.
A newly identified “metabolic signature” can evaluate an individual’s adherence and metabolic response to the Mediterranean diet and help predict future risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD), according to new research.
A recent study conducted by researchers at Tufts University suggests that consuming 1.5 ounces of almonds per day, compared to no almond consumption, may help reduce CVD risk factors such as elevated LDL cholesterol levels, and as a result, reduce an...
Habitual fish oil supplementation may be linked to a lower risk of all-cause and cardiovascular (CVD) disease-related deaths, say researchers, who also point to a lower risk of CVD incidences as a result.
A FANCL-funded RCT study has discovered that the ingestion of tea flower extract, mulberry leaf extract, and chitosan could reduce postprandial blood glucose and triglyceride levels in healthy subjects.
