Plant-Based Diet For Cholesterol: We take many measures to reduce cholesterol but we do not get success, but now there is no need to take tension, recently research has shown that almonds, soya, Plant-based foods, including pulses and legumes, and small amounts of sterols may reduce several heart disease risks, including blood pressure, triglycerides, and inflammation. According to the researchers, this pattern is known as the portfolio diet and is based on a 2,000-calorie diet.
Benefits of Plant-Based Foods
Consuming plant-based foods along with a low-cholesterol diet has been shown to reduce low-density lipoprotein cholesterol by 30 percent. Apart from this, the researchers found that the consumption of this diet reduces the overall risk of heart disease, including heart attack, by 13 percent.
The big revelation in research
'We know that the portfolio diet lowers LDL cholesterol, but we didn't have a clear picture of what else it might do,' said co-author John Sievenpiper, associate professor at the University of Toronto in Canada.
What do experts say?
John Sievenpiper said, 'This study explains the effects of diet and its health potential with greater clarity and authenticity.' The researchers, published in the journal Cardiovascular Diseases, analyzed seven controlled trials with 400 patients.
The risk of these diseases will be less
John Sievenpiper found that there was a 2 percent reduction in the risk of blood pressure and a 32 percent reduction in the risk of inflammation. The researchers said that by making changes in diet and lifestyle, the patient can reduce the risk of high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease and the current study provides further rationale in this direction.
