Atherosclerosis and hypertension are the major cardiovascular diseases that affect developed countries, both of which are directly related with lifestyle habits. Dietary risk factors contribute to these diseases in various ways. There is increasing evidence that active nutritional intervention could reduce the risk of some cardiovascular diseases.
Following the guidelines of the American Heart Association Guidelines and the EFSA recommendation in health claims substantiation, we proactively manage, design and conduct research programmes in the field of:
- Lipid profile management;
- Cardiovascular risk reduction;
- Endothelial Function;
- Peripheral vascular function;
- Inflammatory parameters;
- CHD (coronary Hearth Disease);
- CHF (chronic Heart Failure).
