Nutrition and Cardiovascular Disease

What if I told you that heart disease is one of the most preventable diseases? Or even better, that preventing heart disease simply starts with your grocery list. A nutritious diet and regular exercise can prevent up to 80% of incidences of premature cardiovascular disease and stroke.1

The food we consume massively impacts our health. A nutritious balanced diet reduces the risk of heart disease by efficiently regulating cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure and body weight.

Now, you may be thinking: which diet is ultimately the best? How should I effectively lose weight? Which foods are the worst for heart disease?

The truth is, while there is no universally accepted consensus for the optimal diet, experts converge on a basic set of rules and several evidence-based diets.

By making small, daily alterations in your life, you can massively improve your overall cardiovascular health and begin leading a healthier life.
