Older patients with a history of myocardial infarction (MI) could reduce their chances of premature cardiovascular disease (CVD) and all-cause mortality by consuming sufficient dietary magnesium, according to a Dutch study.
Short-term consumption of blueberries can improve health outcomes in adults at high-risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) but results on healthy individuals are ambiguous and require further investigation to establish long-term outcomes.
The dietary supplements industry has reacted to a recent report from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force that dismissed the potential benefits of multivitamins for the prevention of cardiovascular disease and cancer.
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...
Researchers mining data from a previous study have found that omega-3 supplementation cut the rate of hospitalization for heart failure among patients diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. This effect was heightened for Black subjects, the authors said.
A new review concludes there is strong evidence for how curcuminoids can support vascular health. But the authors note that much of that evidence comes from in vitro tests and trials using animal models.
Norway-based vitamin K2 supplier NattoPharma has highlighted new evidence connecting statin use to increased cardiovascular risk which it says further proves the need for Vitamin K2 supplementation in these patients.
A newly published intervention study has added weight to those debunking the celeb-lauded 'blood type diet', concluding that blood type is not associated with the effects of a plant-based diet on body weight, body fat, plasma lipid concentrations,...
A new study on cardiovascular health using a protein as a biomarker has bolstered the evidence backing the notion that the benefits of vitamin K2 are so important that the substance should have its own RDI, a Norwegian supplier says.
Eating at least two daily servings of high fat dairy, but not low fat, is linked to lower risks of diabetes, high blood pressure, and signs of metabolic syndrome, according to an observational study of nearly 150,000 people across the globe.
Dietary intake, supplement dosage, and comorbidities are three factors that can be overlooked when trying to determine omega-3's effects on cardiovascular disease, says a professor from the University of Western Australia.

Reaction continues to roll in on the recent Cochrane review that found little evidence supporting the cardiovascular benefits of omega-3s. Experts questioned the underlying assumptions in how the review was put together.
The science is clear: a vegetarian diet is better for heart health, a study says - but does that include processed meat analogues? "While not as healthful as whole plants, they are useful transition foods," says one researcher.
A study on a standardized olive fruit extract shows promise for consumers at risk of arterial stiffness, as measured by a reduction in triglycerides. The extract showed less effect when measured with a vascular index.
Italian scientists have linked the Mediterranean diet with lower mortality rates for sufferers of cardiovascular disease, but they also warn that the diet’s benefits are reaching fewer people as consumers are priced out of eating healthily, especially...
