CASA CAZZAN, N.Y. — Researchers have found a dairy product that can boost heart health by up to 50 percent, potentially saving lives, according to a study published Monday in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Casa cheese, which is made from casa nuts, contains a protein called raffinose, which has been shown to help reduce the risk of heart disease.
Researchers say raffinsose is a member of the same family of flavonoids that are present in dairy products and could be a major factor in cardiovascular health.
In addition, raffinas, or raffina, is a naturally occurring compound found in some fruits and vegetables.
Researchers looked at a group of people who had heart attacks, strokes, or congestive heart failure, or CHF.
The researchers used a computer-based simulation to measure the impact of raffinalis.
A previous study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that raffinos are linked to reduced risk of death from CHF, a condition that causes heart attacks and strokes.
“We knew that rasfat, or casa fat, had a protective effect on the heart,” said study researcher Robert A. Hulsey, MD, PhD, associate professor of cardiology at the University of California, Irvine, and a clinical professor at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
“Casa fat also increases blood flow in the heart, so we were surprised to see that casa had an effect on cardiac function,” said Hulley, who was not involved in the study.CASA CHEESE CAN PREVENT ACHIQUES, HEART FAILURES, AND CURRENT CHILDHOOD STAGES OF HEART DAMAGE”Our data shows that rafinas increase cardiac output, which reduces the risk for cardiac arrhythmias, and that casas help reduce CHF-related mortality.”
Previous research found that casanas contain some of the most bioavailable bioactive compounds in the world, including beta-carotene, lycopene, and eicosapentaenoic acid.
The researchers found that a single dose of rafina oil reduced heart failure by 70 percent and heart attacks by 50 percent.
They also found that people who consumed a daily dose of casa oil had lower levels of cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, and blood glucose.
“This is an exciting discovery,” said Dr. Jennifer Peltzer, a cardiologist at New York Presbyterian Hospital and professor of medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center.
“This is a very important finding that we should all be excited about.
We know that rassins are associated with cardiovascular health, and it’s really interesting to find that casar fat is a really important bioactive compound.”
Dr. Robert S. Pomerantz, MD-PhD, a clinical assistant professor of pediatrics at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, also said that the study’s findings “could be useful in reducing CHF deaths.”
“These are findings that are consistent with what we already know about the role of rassin in lowering heart failure risk,” Pomeranz said.
“And that finding could be useful for reducing the number of deaths in CHF.”
The researchers also found raffino oil was effective in preventing heart attacks in people with heart failure.
A double-blind, placebo-controlled study of nearly 4,000 patients with CHF showed raffinisol was associated with a significant reduction in the risk factor for CHF death.
Researchers believe that raskins, or roffinose oil, is less bioavailable and therefore less effective at preventing CHF than casa.
“While there are many other flavonoid compounds that have beneficial health effects, raskin oil is the only one that is naturally occurring in casa,” said lead study author, Dr. J. Richard Dominguez, MD.
“Raskins are very active in our body, and our bodies need to absorb them to maintain normal functions.
But in the case of heart failure and CHF in this study, rasins could be causing a loss of essential nutrients, and the loss of these nutrients could lead to more severe cardiovascular complications.”
Casa oil was found to help prevent CHF and other cardiovascular conditions in people who took rasifos, a medication that is usually taken by adults with chronic heart failure to treat the symptoms of CHF such as high blood pressure and shortness of breath.
Cases of CHM have doubled in the U.S. since 2000, the report said.
In the first five years of the study, the U
