Diet and Lifestyle Recommendations Revision 2006: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association Nutrition Committee
TLDR
Adhering to these diet and lifestyle recommendations, Americans can substantially reduce their risk of developing cardiovascular disease, which remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Expand
Fish consumption, fish oil, omega-3 fatty acids, and cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
Recommendations reflecting the current state of knowledge will be made with regard to both fish consumption and omega-3 fatty acid (plant- and marine-derived) supplementation in the context of recent guidance issued by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Food and Drug Administration about the presence of environmental contaminants in certain species of fish. Expand
Effectiveness-based guidelines for the prevention of cardiovascular disease in women--2011 update: a guideline from the American Heart Association.
TLDR
Substantial progress has been made in the awareness, treatment, and prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in women since the first women-specific clinical recommendations for the prevention of CVD were published by the AHA in 1999, but considerable challenges remain. Expand
Fish consumption, fish oil, omega-3 fatty acids, and cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
Evidence from epidemiological studies and RCTs will be reviewed, and recommendations reflecting the current state of knowledge will be made with regard to both fish consumption and omega-3 fatty acid (plant- and marine-derived) supplementation. Expand
Triglycerides and cardiovascular disease: a scientific statement from the American Heart Association.
TLDR
Clinicians are updated on the increasingly crucial role of triglycerides in the evaluation and management of CVD risk and highlight approaches aimed at minimizing the adverse public health–related consequences associated with hypertriglyceridemic states. Expand
Polyunsaturated fatty acids in the food chain in the United States.
TLDR
Alternative strategies, such as food enrichment and the use of biotechnology to manipulate the EPA and DHA as well as ALA contents of the food supply, will become increasingly important in increasing n-3 fatty acid intake in the US population. Expand
AHA Dietary Guidelines: revision 2000: A statement for healthcare professionals from the Nutrition Committee of the American Heart Association.
TLDR
The overall approach has been modified to emphasize their relation to specific goals that the AHA considers of greatest importance for lowering the risk of heart disease and stroke and increased emphasis on foods and an overall eating pattern. Expand
Bioactive compounds in foods: their role in the prevention of cardiovascular disease and cancer.
TLDR
There is sufficient evidence to recommend consuming food sources rich in bioactive compounds, including a diet rich in a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, oils, and nuts, as well as cardioprotective effects. Expand
Interventions to promote physical activity and dietary lifestyle changes for cardiovascular risk factor reduction in adults: a scientific statement from the American Heart Association.
TLDR
In order to achieve these goals, healthcare providers must focus on reducing CVD risk factors such as overweight and obesity, which could increase by almost 7 years if all forms of major CVD were eliminated. Expand
n-3 fatty acid dietary recommendations and food sources to achieve essentiality and cardiovascular benefits.
TLDR
The evidence base supports a dietary recommendation of approximately 500 mg/d of EPA and DHA for cardiovascular disease risk reduction and treatment of existing cardiovascular disease, and a dietary strategy for achieving the 500-mg/d recommendation is to consume 2 fish meals per week. Expand
