A new diet-focused strategy dubbed the “Polymeal” could reduce the risk of heart disease by 76% and significantly increase life expectancy.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the Western world. Although several risk factors have been identified for the disease, its prevention is still problematic due to high costs, low compliance and side-effects of treatment.
With this in mind, UK researchers developed the concept of the “Polypill” in 2003. The Polypill contains six pharmacological compounds that can reduce the risk of heart disease by 80%.
However, the pill was found costly and with side-effects.
