Three supplements combine to stop world’s biggest killer image

Heart disease, the world’s biggest killer, could be prevented by adding omega-3 fatty acids, cocoa flavanols and phytosterols from vegetable oils to our daily diet. Together, they counter atherosclerosis, a process where arteries fur up and close.

Atherosclerosis is the major cause of heart disease, which is estimated to kill one person every 34 seconds, and is responsible for around one third of all deaths worldwide.

Medicine has few answers to the problem, but researchers from Cardiff University reckon that the three compounds combine to create a protective effect against atherosclerosis.

They are contained in a dietary supplement, manufactured by Cultech Ltd., which has been tested by the researchers on cells in the laboratory. The researchers now want to test the supplement on people to see if the same benefits can be replicated.
