A diet high in β-cryptoxanthin may help ward off metabolic syndrome, liver dysfunction, insulin resistance, oxidative stress, low bone mass, and atherosclerosis.
Adherence to a plant-based dietary lifestyle may significantly cut down atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease (CAD) risk.
A lifestyle that involves the regular intake of low-fat vegetarian diets, aerobic exercise, and stress reduction may improve and reverse the conditions of coronary heart disease patients.
Trimethylamine-N-oxide (TMAO), a metabolite produced by intestinal microbes, is associated with elevated atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease risk.
L-carnitine, a major component of red meat, may increase an individual’s susceptibility to cardiovascular disease, such as atherosclerosis, and adverse cardiac events, such as stroke and myocardial infarction.
High intake of polyunsaturated fat may lower the risk of developing coronary artery atherosclerosis in African green monkeys. This study evaluated the relationship between the consumption of monounsaturated, saturated, and polyunsaturated fat and coronary artery atherosclerosis development. Researchers fed 3 groups of African green monkeys with diets rich in saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fats. Atherosclerosis...
The occurrence of local and systemic inflammation in atherosclerosis is linked to the plaque piercing action of cholesterol crystals.
Cholesterol crystals may promote arterial thrombosis via arteriosclerotic plaque disruption and erosion.
