Kardea Nutrition & The Cooking Cardiologist Join to Create Gourmet System for Heart Health
Date:2/1/2010

Kardea Nutrition™ (http://www.kardeanutrition.com) is pleased to announce that it has teamed with Dr Richard Collins, a Mayo Clinic trained cardiologist, also known as The Cooking Cardiologist®, (http://www.thecookingcardiologist.com/) to develop an integrated nutritional approach that advances cardiovascular health and disease prevention.

Hamden, CT (PRWEB) February 1, 2010 -- Kardea Nutrition™ is pleased to announce that it has teamed with Dr Richard Collins, a Mayo Clinic trained cardiologist, also known as The Cooking Cardiologist®, to develop an integrated nutritional approach that advances cardiovascular health and disease prevention..

“What you eat and how much you eat can significantly alter cardiovascular health,” say Dr. Collins. "Certain nutrients can be very helpful. Others can be quite harmful. The power of nutrition lies with the overall eating patterns and preferences.”

The National Institutes of Health and the American Heart Association have long asserted that dietary choices are the foundation of cardiovascular disease prevent ion and health promotion. The NIH recognizes that lifestyle choice emphasizing nutrition “compares well with many of the cholesterol-lowering drugs.(1)” For some, food choices allow individuals to maintain healthy cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels without the use of medications. For others, food choices reduce the medications required to achieve healthy levels.

In addition to serving on Kardea’s Board of Advisors, Dr. Collins will join Kardea’s founder, Robert Leighton, in co-authoring The Kardea Gourmet: Great Science, Fantastic Foods and Cardiovascular Health. This book will provide readers with a clear understanding of how cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar levels interact with inflammation to affect cardiovascular health. It then will review the impact of specific nutrients and overall diet. Gourmet chefs from noted restaurants around the country also will be providing the meal plans that deliver the right nutritional balance and heart healthy nutrients, including Omega-3s, fibers, plant sterols and antioxidants.

Sections of the book, including recipes, are posted on kardeagourmet.com . Updates are being added on a weekly basis. Kardea is seeking input from interested readers.

Founded in 2007, Kardea Nutrition™ LLC was launched to empower people to manage their cholesterol, naturally and nutritiously. Kardea Nutrition™ has since extended its scope to enable the power of nutrition to advance overall cardiovascular health. Its products are currently available at many retailers throughout the United States, including Whole Foods, Nordstrom, drugstore.com and Hy-Vee. Products can also be purchased directly from Kardea’s online store.
