About This Topic

Dear Colleagues
Primary prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the foundation for reducing global morbidity and mortality. Among the modifiable lifestyle behaviors, healthy diet, exercise and smoking cessation remain the cornerstones of primary prevention. In terms of diet, a variety of dietary products have been shown to have beneficial effects on vascular function, whereas others have been shown to have the opposite effect. Foods and beverages with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties are beneficial to cardiovascular health. Vitamins (e.g., vitamin D) may also be protective. On the other hand, saturated fats and carbohydrates accelerate cardiovascular aging and should be avoided. The so-called Mediterranean diet is probably the most studied dietary pattern and is recommended for cardiovascular and overall health. However, other diets are also attractive. Considering the wealth of data on the impact of diet on cardiovascular disease and overall mortality, and the fact that restricting calorie intake is considered one of the most effective measures to slow cardiovascular aging, dietary guidelines for cardiovascular health are provided by targeting the most essential dietary components and nutrients. Recommended dosages and optimal frequency of intake would facilitate the most comprehensive approach to the problem.
