Brief description Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Australia. Plant foods, rich in flavonoids, have been shown to be beneficial for heart health. However, it appears as though some people benefit more than others, most likely due to differences in flavonoid breakdown. My research focus is to explore how flavonoid breakdown affects improvements in heart health. I hope to include recommendations to increase flavonoid intake into dietary guidelines as a way of reducing heart disease in Australia.
