A Method For Lowering Risk Of Cardiovascular Diseases

Abstract

The present invention relates to a method for lowering risk of cardiovascular diseases in human, particularly for lowering low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) concentration and oxidative stress level while maintaining sufficient high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) concentration in human, and to a dietary formulation and a fat or fat blend suitable for human consumption for resulting in the same. The method is by way of controlling daily dietary fat and antioxidants consumption so that: daily dietary fat accounts for 20 - 40 % of the total daily dietary energy intake; 10 - 20 % wt of the fatty acids in daily dietary fat are saturated fatty acids (SFAs); 20 - 35 % wt of the fatty acids in daily dietary fat are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs); 45 - 70 % wt of the fatty acids in daily dietary fat are monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs); and the ratio of antioxidants to polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in daily dietary fat is ranging from about 15 - 70 ppm antioxidants / % wt PUFAs.
