Protein-rich diet will keep your heart healthy

New Delhi, Sep 13 (ANI): There is a reason why doctors recommend eating protein rich food. A new study has revealed that high protein foods boost cardiovascular health.

The research reveals that people who eat high levels of certain amino acids found in meat and plant-based protein have lower blood pressure and arterial stiffness. But they found that the food source was important - with a higher intake of amino acids from plant-based sources associated with lower blood pressure, and a higher intake from animal sources associated with lower levels of arterial stiffness.

Lead researcher Amy Jennings said that this research shows that increasing intake of protein-rich foods such as meat, fish, dairy produce, beans, lentils, broccoli and spinach could be an important and readily achievable way to reduce people's risk of cardiovascular disease. So, the next time you visit a grocery store; do not forget to mention these protein-rich foods in your shopping list.
