The presence of cheese in the diet boosts the body’s defenses against heart attack. The chance of heart attack in this case is reduced by 14%. To such conclusion scientists from the University of reading (UK). The results of their study are published in the European Journal of Nutrition.
One consisted of volunteers who every day, eat a 40-gram piece of cheese in the other people whose food was not regulated. In the end, the participants of the first group at physical examination demonstrated a high level of protection for the organism from vascular pathologies.
As noted by scholars, in the “cheese” group of people increased the contents of the so-called “good” cholesterol, and decreased levels of “bad”. According to researchers, this is because cheese is rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins that help protect against cardiovascular disease. In addition, the product contains a high dose of calcium, which in turn improves metabolism.
A similar conclusion about the positive effect of cheese on the vascular system of the body came scientists from McMaster University (Canada). They analyzed data about health and lifestyle 130,000 people from 35 to 70 years from 21 countries. In the end, scientists found that daily consumption of products based on processed milk in yogurt contributes to a significant reduction in the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
