This book provides an evidence-based approach for the clinical use of nutraceuticals in the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease. It examines cardiovascular disease epidemiology, risk factors, and the role of dietary patterns. Clinical chapters discuss the use of nutraceuticals in the management of medical conditions such as dyslipidemia, hypertension, insulin resistance, and heart failure. Each chapter contains a short epidemiological background; a list of relevant active compounds and their efficacy, tolerability, and safety; and suggestions for prescribers. This book is a practical guide with the best clinical evidence supporting the use of nutraceuticals in cardiology.
Nutraceuticals and Cardiovascular Disease: An Evidence-based Approach for Clinical Practice is an essential resource for physicians, residents, fellows, and medical students in cardiology, clinical nutrition, dietetics, and internal medicine.
