Mediterranean diet for heart health

The Mediterranean diet is a heart-healthy diet that incorporates the cooking styles of the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea. The Mediterranean diet consists of plant based foods, replacing butter with healthy fats, herbs instead of salts, limiting red meats, eating fish and poultry, drinking red wine in moderation, eating with family and getting exercise. Fruits and vegetables, whole grain pastas, nuts and rice are a key ingredient in the Mediterranean diet.

The Mediterranean diet has been scientifically proven to reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering “bad cholesterol” in your diet. Meta-analysis shows that over 1.5 million healthy adults following the Mediterranean diet are associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular death. Studies have also shown a reduced rate of cancer, Parkinson’s’ and Alzheimer’s diseases. Women who have incorporated the Mediterranean diet with extra virgin olive oil and mixed nuts have shown a reduced risk of breast cancer.
