The Role of a Vegetarian Diet, Reducing Red Meat, and Limiting Salt Intake in Preventing Cardiovascular Diseases during Menopause


When women enter menopause, the reduction in estrogen secretion may increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

To prevent cardiovascular issues after menopause, it's recommended to actively manage weight and focus on a diet primarily composed of vegetables, reducing red meat intake, and limiting salt consumption for personal health.

Estrogen in a woman's body plays a protective role in cardiovascular health. However, as women enter menopause, the rapid decline in estrogen levels may lead to fat accumulation in blood vessel walls, raising the risk of conditions like atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, and stroke. Apart from actively maintaining an ideal weight, dietary adjustments are also advised, including:

1. Emphasizing a Vegetarian Diet and Reducing Red Meat Intake

Daily dietary recommendations suggest a focus on vegetarian meals, with whole grains and vegetables/fruits comprising over two-thirds of the overall diet, while reducing the intake of red meat.

2. Limiting Salt Intake

Daily salt intake should be less than 6 grams, and the use of seasonings and sauces should also be reduced."
