THE CLINICAL TRIAL
Holy Name Medical Center, ranked one of the top Hospitals in NJ by U.S. News and World Report, conducted a trailblazing clinical trial indented to uncover the potential of preventive care with food. Given the compelling research around the benefits of plant-based foods, more than 200 participants were divided into two co-horts – Vegan and Vegetarian. Each cohort underwent extensive testing before and after their diets over a 22 days period. Some of the most significant results include: BMI going down over 5x more and Body Fat reducing over 4x more on a Vegan than Vegetarian Diet. Most importantly, LDL went down over 200% more and overall cholesterol reduced by over 400% on a Vegan than Vegetarian Diet. The plant-based cohort also experienced more energy, better digestion, and improved sleep, among many other positive changes.
"Being part of the 22-Day Greenprint clinical study has been a valuable and exciting experience, one that aligns with Holy Name Medical Center's own healthy lifestyle initiatives," said Michael Maron, President & CEO. "We're grateful that our organization was chosen as the trial site." When considering data that revealed significant improvements in body mass index, cholesterol and weight for research participants in the trial's vegan cohort, Mr. Maron called the outcomes "very dramatic with potential for real impact on quality of life," adding "People reported having more energy, fewer digestive symptoms, they were sleeping more soundly, even their skin looked healthier. The effects were so far-reaching, it was, frankly, astounding."
Finally, Marco Borges expressed "Each of us have the ability of changing our lives, the lives of our families, the health of our communities, and the condition of our world by making one powerful and basic choice – deciding what is on the tip of our forks. Let's define our own destiny. Let's create our own Greenprint."
