Products with a high content of unsaturated fats can protect the health of cardiovascular diseases. To such conclusion experts of the Research centre of biotechnology name Keenan at the Hospital of the Archangel Michael (Toronto), their study published in the journal Nature Communications.

One such product is olive oil. After eating in the body increases the protein concentration of plasma apolipoprotein A-IV (ApoA-IV). Scientists have previously argued that the high content of this substance is associated with a reduced risk of developing heart disease.

A new study allowed the researchers to assume that the protein ApoA-IV inhibits the activity of platelets. It blocks a protein membrane glycoprotein IIb/IIIa, without which these items cannot be collected in one place. The accumulation of these cells can cause blockages that lead to formation of clots (thrombus) that prevents the free course of blood through the circulatory system. Scientists say that the thrombosis is considered the most common cause of death.

It was also found that apolipoprotein A-IV has its own «biological clock» — circadian rhythms. The protein exhibits greatest activity at night and is «resting» this morning.

«Mother nature wants us slept well, so we are under the protection of this protein when you sleep and are most vulnerable to heart diseases in the morning when you Wake up,» — said the study’s lead author, Director of the center of Hematology and the study of cancer and autoimmune diseases, Dr. Hew No.
