Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease “PREVENT & REVERSE HEART DISEASE” by Cald­well B. Essel­styn, Jr., M.D.

Based on the ground­break­ing results of a twenty-year nutri­tional study by Dr. Essel­styn, a pre­em­i­nent researcher and clin­i­cian, this book illus­trates that a plant-based, oil-free diet can not only pre­vent and stop the pro­gres­sion of heart dis­ease but can also reverse its effects. The proof lies in the incred­i­ble out­comes for patients who have fol­lowed Dr. Esselstyn’s pro­gram, includ­ing a num­ber of patients in his orig­i­nal study who had been told by their car­di­ol­o­gists that they had less than a year to live. Within months of start­ing the pro­gram, Dr. Esselstyn’s patients began to improve dra­mat­i­cally, and twenty years later, they remain free of symptoms.

Com­plete with more than 150 deli­cious recipes, this book explains the sci­ence behind the sim­ple plan that has dras­ti­cally changed the lives of Dr. Esselstyn’s patients for­ever. It will empower read­ers to take con­trol of their heart health.

Nutritional Yeast Recipes | Prevention Magazine

Nutri­tional Yeast Recipes | Pre­ven­tion Magazine

 

Long a cult favorite among veg­ans, nutri­tional yeast has finally hit the big time. These pow­dery yel­low flakes, which are sim­ply vitamin-fortified inac­tive yeast made from cane or beet molasses, is now show­ing up in every­thing from kale chips to savory crack­ers to DIY nut “cheese” recipes. With all the umami glory of cheese yet none of the vile impli­ca­tions of dairy (or MSG), the stuff has even become a new favorite among Bon Appetit editors—and if that’s not a sign of max­i­mum trendi­ness, we’re not sure what is.

 

And nooch, as some insid­ers like to call it, lives up to the hype. First, it tastes deli­cious, like Parme­san with­out being Parme­san. It’s also gluten-free and packed with B vit­a­mins like B12, riboflavin, thi­amin, niacin, and folic acid, plus 6 grams of a pro­tein in  every 45-calorie ¼ cup (com­pare that to the 110 calo­ries in the same amount of Parmesan).

Best of all, the stuff is a cre­ative cook’s best friend, with the abil­ity to trans­form nearly any recipe into some­thing super tasty—and vegan, dairy-free, Paleo-friendly, or lower-cal.

Those with the health­i­est diets were 24% less likely to expe­ri­ence cog­ni­tive decline.

We’ve all heard the age old adage, “You are what you eat.” But could what we eat also affect how we think?

New research sheds addi­tional light sup­port­ing the long stand­ing notion that eat­ing a healthy diet could poten­tially be linked to a lower risk of mem­ory and think­ing decline, researchers say.

The study, pub­lished this week in the jour­nal Neu­rol­ogy, fur­ther helps our under­stand­ing of the cor­re­la­tion a higher diet qual­ity could have on reduc­ing the risk of mem­ory loss.
