Flavonoids Can Prevent Impairment of Endothelial Function After High-Fat Meals

In the results of a new clinical study published by the Oxford Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, researchers find that supplementing your diet with flavonoids can reduce the acute decline in endothelial function caused by eating a high-fat meal. The endothelium is the inner lining of blood vessels that allows blood to flow smoothly, and endothelial dysfunction is the hardening of these vessels that leads directly to heart attacks, strokes, and other fatal hypertension diseases. Various foods high in flavonoids such as black tea, dark chocolate, red wine and citrus fruits have been associated with a lowered risk for cardiovascular disease, and this new study by the Carolinas HealthCare System helps identify endothelial function as a key link between flavonoid supplementation and the prevention of heart disease. In the study, Itamar Medi... (more)
