Vegan Diets Shown To Help Reverse Symptoms Of Heart Failure In New Study
A new study has highlighted how following a vegan diet can reverse the symptoms of heart failure.
Studies have previously demonstrated a link between plant-based diets and the prevention of heart disease — with the new research further strengthening the connection between vegan food and heart health.
The study has shown how a diet free-from animal products can improve the flow of blood to the heart, while “lessening the effects obesity, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and diabetes.”
“Consistent Positive Improvements”
“Annually, more than 550,000 people are diagnosed with heart failure in the US,” state the authors of the study, explaining that half of these patients will “die within the first five years.”
“A number of small studies in the past 2 decades show a consistent positive clinical and risk factor improvements in patients with heart failure.”
“These findings, although in small samples, can lead the way for more interventional studies…to shed more light on the effects of a plant-based diet on heart failure as a clinical intervention.”

Vegan Diets & Heart Health
The study concluded that “plant-based diets show promising results in heart failure patients and should be viewed as an important adjunct to standard treatment.”
In discussing the reasons why plant-based food has such a positive impact on heart health, the researchers revealed that “antioxidants, micronutrients and aversion to high fat nutritional choices are associated with reduction in heart failure incidence and morbidity.”
