Macronutrients are those nutrients (protein, fat, and carbohydrate) that provide energy. The purpose of this review is to highlight findings of three large-scale, isocaloric feeding studies: the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) trial, the DASH-Sodium trial, and the Optimal Macro-Nutrient Intake to Prevent Heart Disease (OmniHeart) trial. Each of these trials tested the effects of diets with different macronturient profiles on traditional cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors… 
Nutraceuticals for blood pressure control
TLDR
Clinical research is advisable in order to identify, among active nutraceuticals, those with the best cost-effectiveness and risk–benefit ratio for a wide use in the general population with a raised cardiovascular risk consequent to uncomplicated hypertension.
Effects of the dietary approach to stop hypertension (DASH) diet on blood pressure, blood glucose, and lipid profile in adolescents with hemophilia: A randomized clinical trial
TLDR
Adherence to the DASH diet in children with hemophilia yielded beneficial effects in blood pressure, lipid profiles, and FBS.
Nutraceuticals and Blood Pressure Control: Results from Clinical Trials and Meta-Analyses
TLDR
A relatively large body of evidence support the use of potassium, l-arginine, vitamin C, cocoa flavonoids, beetroot juice, coenzyme Q10, controlled-release melatonin, and aged garlic extract in general population with low-added cardiovascular risk related to uncomplicated hypertension.
Blood Pressure Regulation: Reviewing Evidence for Interplay Between Common Dietary Sugars and Table Salt
TLDR
Interplay between table salt and common dietary sugars in BP regulation is a reasonable postulate and should be carefully considered when developing optimal prevention and treatment regimens to ameliorate the worldwide crisis arising from harmful elevated BP levels.
Effects of dietary fatty acid composition on 24-h energy expenditure and chronic disease risk factors in men.
TLDR
Investigation of the effects of an HF diet rich in either monounsaturated or saturated fatty acids (FAs) and of exercise on EE and chronic disease risk factors in healthy, nonobese men found resting metabolic rate and 24-h EE were not significantly different after short-term exposure.
Effect of whey protein on blood lipid profiles: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
TLDR
The findings demonstrated that the effects of whey protein supplementation were modest, with an overall lowering effect on TG but no effect on TC, LDL-C and HDL-C.
Animal and Plant Protein Sources and Cardiometabolic Health.
TLDR
This review aimed at deciphering the relation between plant and animal protein and cardiometabolic health by examining different nutritional levels (such as amino acids, protein type, protein foods, protein patterns, and associated overall dietary and nutrient patterns) and varying levels of scientific evidence.
Influence of dietary sugars on blood pressure regulation: historical, epidemiological, laboratory, and clinical considerations
TLDR
An amplified interaction between common table salt and dietary sugars to raise BP has been reported and should be prudently considered when planning the most advantageous prevention and treatment regimens to ameliorate the global crisis arising from damaging pressure levels.
Fruit, Vegetables, and Legumes Consumption: Role in Preventing and Treating Obesity
TLDR
Clinical trials show that the enrichment of diets in foods with high fiber content and antioxidant properties such as fruits, vegetables, and legumes with the purpose of reducing the risk of illnesses associated with obesity can provide an additional healthy value by improving compliance and lowering risk.
Evidence of Clinically Relevant Efficacy for Dietary Supplements and Nutraceuticals
TLDR
A relatively large body of evidence support the use of potassium, L-arginine, vitamin C, cocoa flavonoids, coenzyme Q10, controlled-release melatonin, and aged garlic extract for BP-lowering effect, but there is a need for data about the long-term safety of a large part of these products.

Effects of protein, monounsaturated fat, and carbohydrate intake on blood pressure and serum lipids: results of the OmniHeart randomized trial.
TLDR
In the setting of a healthful diet, partial substitution of carbohydrate with either protein or monounsaturated fat can further lower blood pressure, improve lipid levels, and reduce estimated cardiovascular risk.
Effects on blood lipids of a blood pressure-lowering diet: the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) Trial.
TLDR
The DASH diet is likely to reduce coronary heart disease risk and changes in lipids did not differ significantly by race or baseline lipid concentrations, except for HDL, which decreased more in participants with higher baseline HDL-cholesterol concentrations than in those with lower baseline LDL-ch cholesterol concentrations.
Effects on blood pressure of reduced dietary sodium and the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet
TLDR
The effect of different levels of dietary sodium, in conjunction with the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, which is rich in vegetables, fruits, and low-fat dairy products, in persons with and in those without hypertension is studied.
Effect of Dietary Sodium Intake on Blood Lipids: Results From the DASH–Sodium Trial
TLDR
Changes in dietary sodium intake over the range of 50 to 150 mmol/d did not affect blood lipid concentrations, and there was no dose-response of sodium intake on serum lipids or the cholesterol ratio in either diet.
A clinical trial of the effects of dietary patterns on blood pressure. DASH Collaborative Research Group.
TLDR
A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy foods and with reduced saturated and total fat can substantially lower blood pressure.
The effect of dietary patterns on blood pressure control in hypertensive patients: results from the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) trial.
TLDR
In patients with hypertension, the DASH combination diet effectively lowers BP and may be useful in achieving control of Stage 1 hypertension.
Effect of dietary patterns on serum homocysteine: results of a randomized, controlled feeding study.
TLDR
Modification of dietary patterns can have substantial effects on fasting levels of total serum homocysteine, providing additional insights into the mechanisms by which diet might influence the occurrence of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
Dietary supplementation with n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E after myocardial infarction: results of the GISSI-Prevenzione trial
TLDR
Dietary supplementation with n-3 PUFA led to a clinically important and statistically significant benefit and vitamin E had no benefit and its effects on fatal cardiovascular events require further exploration.
Effects of omega-3 fatty acids on cardiovascular risk factors and intermediate markers of cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
For outcomes with few studies, all studies were included regardless of study design or sample size (minimum of five subjects), and for most outcomes of interest, analysis was confined to the largest randomized trials for each outcome evaluated.
Dietary supplementation with n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E after myocardial infarction: results of the GISSI-Prevenzione trial. Gruppo Italiano per lo Studio della Sopravvivenza nell'Infarto miocardico.
TLDR
Dietary supplementation with n-3 PUFA led to a clinically important and satistically significant benefit and its effects on fatal cardiovascular events require further exploration.
