Scientists may have found a natural alternative for the treatment of heart disease, according to studies.
Heart diseases are a medical condition associated with any disruption of blood vessels and heart function.
There are 5 types of heart diseases, including
* Heart disease affected by the arteries to the heart, such as coronary artery heart disease
* heart disease affected by heart valves function in regulating blood flow such as valvular heart disease
* heart disease affected electrical conduction such as arrhythmias
* Heart disease affected by heart muscles such as cardiomyopathy
and * Congenital heart disease caused by heart defect at birth
According to the statistics, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the US, approximately 610,000 people die of heart disease every year.
Coronary heart disease (CHD) kills over 370,000 people annually.
Most common heart disease in North America is CHD, the type of heart disease caused by plaque buildup on artery walls, leading to narrow, thickens and stiffens arteries. Some researchers suggested that the causes of plaque build-up on the arterial wall were the results of several factors including an unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, being overweight and smoking.
Dr. Sonia S. Anand and colleagues in examing the risk of heart disease associated with poor diet wrote, "Based on the current evidence, the optimal dietary pattern to reduce CVD is one that emphasizes whole grains, fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts, fish, poultry, and moderate dairy and heart-healthy vegetable oil intake; this pattern will likely reduce the CVD risk by about a third".
And, "This healthy dietary pattern needs also to be low in refined grains, added sugars, trans-fats, SSBs, and red and processed meats. The traditional Mediterranean-type diet provides a well-tested prototype for this healthy dietary pattern".
Researchers not only mentioned that the Western diet pattern associated with the risk of CVD indirectly but also suggested that the diet pattern including the intake of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts, fish, poultry, and moderate dairy and heart-healthy vegetable oil in reducing the risk of CVD.
Honey is the miraculous product made by bees using nectar from flowers.
The rich golden liquid It is considered one of healthy sweet food for replacing the use of white sugar and artificial sweetener by many people.
Researchers on finding a natural compound for the treatment of heart disease investigated the
honey and its polyphenols cardioprotective activity.
According to the epidemiological studies, regular intake of phenolic compounds is associated with reducing the risk of heart diseases.
Honey exerted coronary heart disease protective effects by the expression of phenolic compounds through several mechanisms, including mainly antithrombotic, anti-ischemic, anti-oxidant, and vasorelaxant effects.
Furthermore, the effect of flavonoids found in honey decreased the risk of coronary heart disease by improving coronary vasodilatation, decreasing the ability of platelets in the blood to clot, and preventing low-density lipoproteins (LDLs) from oxidization.
The results clearly suggested the preventive role of polyphenols of honey against the onset of cardiovascular diseases (CVD).
In order to reveal more information about the honey cardioprotective activity, researchers examined the honey effects on blood sugar, body weight, lipid profile, C-reactive protein, nitric oxide, pro-inflammatory prostaglandins, and homocysteine.
By examing the growing evidence and scientific data, researchers found honey not only demonstrates in the treatment of diabetes, HTN, dyslipidemia, obesity but also has a potential effect against CVD.
Taken altogether, honey may be considered a functioning remedy for the prevention and treatment of heart disease, pending to the confirmation of large sample size and multicenter human study.
