Observational studies have suggested that the intake of flavonoids is associated with a decreased risk of CVD. However, the results of these studies remain controversial. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the association between dietary flavonoid intake and CVD risk by conducting a systematic review of prospective cohort studies. Electronic reference databases were searched to identify studies that met the pre-stated inclusion criteria. The studies were assessed for eligibility and…

A Boost in Mitochondrial Activity Underpins the Cholesterol-Lowering Effect of Annurca Apple Polyphenols on Hepatic Cells
TLDR
A metabolic profiling of in vitro cultured human hepatocytes treated with AAE shows that AAE acts differently than statins, and Citrate and acetyl-CoA are diverted to the Krebs Cycle by AAE, that lowers cholesterogenesis and fatty acid synthesis.

The relation between dietary flavonol intake and coronary heart disease mortality: a meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies
TLDR
It is indicated that high dietary intake of flavonols from a small number of fruits and vegetables, tea and red wine may be associated with a reduced risk from CHD mortality in free-living populations.
Dietary flavonol intake may lower stroke risk in men and women.
TLDR
It is concluded that flavonols may reduce stroke risk in people free of cardiovascular diseases or stroke at baseline and in studies involving at least 2155 nonfatal and fatal cases.
Fruit and vegetable consumption and risk of coronary heart disease: a meta-analysis of cohort studies.
TLDR
This meta-analysis of cohort studies shows that fruit and vegetable consumption is inversely associated with the risk of CHD, although the causal mechanism of this association remains to be demonstrated.
Fruit and vegetable intake and incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus: systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Increasing daily intake of green leafy vegetables could significantly reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and should be investigated further.
Flavonoid intake and cardiovascular disease mortality: a prospective study in postmenopausal women.
TLDR
Dietary intakes of flavanones, anthocyanidins, and certain foods rich in flavonoids were associated with reduced risk of death due to CHD, CVD, and all causes.
Flavonoid intake and the risk of cardiovascular disease in women.
TLDR
Flavonoid intake was not strongly associated with a reduced risk of CVD, and the nonsignificant inverse associations for broccoli, apples, and tea with CVD were not mediated by flavonoids and warrant further study.
Dietary flavonoids, antioxidant vitamins, and incidence of stroke: the Zutphen study.
TLDR
The habitual intake of flavonoids and their major source (tea) may protect against stroke, after adjustment for potential confounders, including antioxidant vitamins.
Dietary flavonoid intake and risk of cardiovascular disease in postmenopausal women.
TLDR
Of the foods that contributed the most to flavonoids intake in this cohort, only broccoli was strongly associated with reduced risk of CHD death, and the data of this study suggest that flavonoid intake may reduce risk of death from CHD in postmenopausal women.
Inverse association of tea and flavonoid intakes with incident myocardial infarction: the Rotterdam Study.
TLDR
An increased intake of tea and flavonoids may contribute to the primary prevention of ischemic heart disease.
