The 'Portfolio' diet, rich in plant protein (legums), nuts, and fibers, isn't just a fad—it could be lifesaving (Glenn AJ,, 2023).

A comprehensive study followed over 200,000 health professionals for up to 30 years, revealing that those who stuck to this plant-based diet had a significantly lower risk of heart disease and stroke.

Scoring high on the Portfolio Diet Score meant up to a 14% reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. This diet, which also favors healthy fats and minimizes saturated fat, improved blood lipid and inflammatory profiles.

In short, embracing plants on your plate could lead to a stronger, healthier heart.
