Can coronary heart sufferers eat young jackfruit?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a disease that occurs due to disturbances in the coronary blood vessels, namely the blood vessels that supply blood, oxygen and nutrients to the heart. This condition can cause the sufferer to experience chest pain, shortness of breath, and even a heart attack if there is a total blockage in the coronary arteries. Various conditions can increase a person's risk of developing CHD, including hypertension (high blood pressure), high blood cholesterol, diabetes, a sedentary lifestyle, and smoking habits.
Jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus) is known to have a high potassium content. This high potassium intake is very good for its role to help prevent and control high blood pressure. In addition, jackfruit is high in antioxidants, so it is very useful in maintaining a healthy heart and blood vessels. Therefore, in general, consumption of jackfruit (including young jackfruit) is not dangerous for people with CHD.
However, of course, the consumption of any food should not be done excessively. Moreover, if the person with CHD also suffers from other diseases, such as kidney problems, liver problems, and so on. Therefore, it would be safer if you consult this directly with a heart specialist who handles the patient, because he or she knows better about the patient's condition as a whole.
Hope this helps ..
