Scientists at Boston University School of Medicine have named the diet to improve heart function and mental health. According to the findings of their study, this is the MIND plant-based diet.
As a result of scientific work, experts came to the conclusion that the MIND diet, according to which it is necessary to have berries and green leafy vegetables in the diet, as well as to limit the consumption of foods high in saturated fat and animal products, had a positive effect on the work of the left ventricle of the heart. Note that this function is responsible for pumping oxygenated blood throughout the body. Among other things, it turned out that if you stick to this diet, you can also support neurocognitive health.
“Our results underscore the importance of following the MIND diet for improving cardiovascular health and further reducing the burden of cardiovascular disease in society,” said Vanessa Xantakis, associate professor of medicine and biostatistics at BUSM and researcher at the Framingham Heart Study.
