The Science

The Pritikin Program meets the rigorous research and scientific outcome requirements necessary for Medicare approval as an ICR program.

More than 100 studies, all published in peer-reviewed scientific journals, have shown documented results in reducing risk factors for heart disease and other conditions.

While some factors affecting health, such as age, gender, and family history, are not controllable, the Pritikin Program is proven to prevent, control, or reverse risk factors for a multiplicity of diseases, ailments, and conditions including:

  • Heart Disease
  • Angina Pain
  • Hypertension
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Metabolic Syndrome
  • Insulin Resistance
  • Excess Weight/Obesity
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Breast Cancer
  • Colon Cancer
  • High Cholesterol
  • High Triglycerides
  • Peripheral Artery Disease
  • Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
  • Chronic Inflammation

Archives of Internal Medicine, 1991; 151:1389. New England Journal of Medicine, 1990; 323; 1142.

LDL CHOLESTEROL AND TRIGLYCERIDES REDUCED

Among 4,587 adults, LDL decreased on average 23% in 3 weeks. Triglycerides fell 33%.

Atherosclerosis, 2007; 191: 98. Journal of Applied Physiology, 2006; 100: 1657.
Metabolism, 2004; 53: 377.

CHRONIC INFLAMMATION REDUCED

Markers of chronic inflammation, notably C-reactive protein, fell about 40% in 2 to 3 weeks.

American Journal of Cardiology, 1997; 79: 1112.

STATIN THERAPY ENHANCED

Before starting the Pritikin Program, 93 people had lowered their cholesterol about 20% using statins. Two weeks after beginning Pritikin, their cholesterol had fallen nearly 20% more.

Journal of Applied Physiology, 2005; 98: 3

DIABETES IMPROVED

Among 864 Type 2 diabetics, fasting glucose fell on average 19% within 3 weeks of starting the Pritikin Program. Many reduced their need for diabetes medications.

Journal of Applied Physiology, 2005; 98: 3

BLOOD PRESSURE LOWERED

Among 1,117 hypertensives, systolic and diastolic blood pressure each fell on average 9% within 3 weeks of beginning the Pritikin Program. Many reduced or eliminated their need for hypertension medications.

Archives of Internal Medicine, 1991; 151: 1389. Journal of CardioMetabolic Syndrome, 2006; 1: 308.

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

Within 2 to 3 weeks of starting the Pritikin Program, overweight adults lost on average 7 to 11 pounds.

Journal of Cardiac Rehabilitation, 1983; 3: 183.

LONG-TERM SUCCESS WITH HEART HEALTH

A follow-up study of 64 heart patients found that 68% of those who had eliminated their angina (chest pain) with the Pritikin Program were still angina-free five years later.
