“Within the last decades, a shift in awareness toward modifiable conditions has been observed and risk factor management has gained significant momentum. In light of this, dietary approaches are of paramount importance. Whole‐food plant‐based diets emphasizing grains, legumes, vegetables, fruits and nuts and excluding most (or all) animal products have recently experienced a significantly increased interest.”


Reviewing the current evidence, a whole‐food plant‐based diet might be a valuable tool in managing and reducing common risk factors that are associated with atrial fibrillation, including hypertension, coronary artery disease, inflammation, obesity, and diabetes. Larger randomized controlled trials investigating plant‐based diets in routine AF management are necessary to confirm those findings.”
