Fresh Salad and Serving Tongs

The relationship between diet, health and disease is well known.

In contrast to several cardiovascular risk factors you can’t influence yourself (gender, family history, age), poor nutrition is one of the so called modifiable risks for your cardiovascular wellbeing.

Many foods have a positive effect (Mediterranean diet), others, however, may deteriorate your medical situation by increasing body weight, “bad” cholesterol (LDL), and blood pressure. Excess LDL cholesterol can be deposited on the inner walls of blood vessels and narrowing of arteries may eventually lead to impairment of the circulation.

A healthy diet should be low in sodium chloride (NaCl), alcohol and fat and contain only small amounts of so-called saturated fatty acids. We recommend a variable and mixed diet with plenty of fiber.

Our nutrition team offers a service of advising on nutrition and health, food-related problems and practical ways to manage disease and ill health.
