The Nordic Centre of Excellence project SYSDIET recently published results of a multicentre intervention study showing that a healthy diet, based on Nordic ingredients, improves cholesterol values and reduces the level of inflammation factors in comparison to a typical western diet, thus, reducing the risk of coronary heart disease. Altogether 166 subjects with impaired glucose metabolism completed the study lasting 18-24 weeks.
