Plant-Based Diets are Beneficial for Cardiovascular Health

Plant-Based Diets are Beneficial for Cardiovascular Health

Nutritionally rich plant-based diets are associated with a reduced risk for cardiovascular disease, according to recent findings.

Plant-based diets are associated with a reduced risk for cardiovascular disease, according to findings recently presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Nutrition. A study that spanned 3 decades found that nutritionally rich plant-based diets provided cardiovascular health benefits, but a diet of mostly low-fat foods did not.

A diet high in nutritionally rich plant foods and less consumption of high-fat meat products and less healthy plant foods was associated with a risk reduction of 19% for cardiovascular disease, a 22% risk reduction for coronary heart disease, and 29% risk reduction for stroke.

Nutritionally rich plant-based foods include legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits, and vegetables. OWYN’s plant-based shakes and powders are full of nutritionally rich plant foods – peas, flaxseeds, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, and a dose of superfood greens blend.
