In a total of 554 subjects screened, and 386 subjects (252 females) included in the analysis, short-term yoga-based intervention showed a significant improvement of 10-year cardiovascular risk (p < 0.001) with a strong positive correlation between CVD and serum total cholesterol (r = 0.60; p < 0.001).

The study also found that the correlation of cardiovascular diseases risk factors is associated to the improvement of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and triglycerides, serum very-low-density lipoprotein cholesterol , and systolic blood pressure in yoga participants.

Dr. Yadav R, the lead author said,"yoga-based life-style intervention program significantly reduced the CVD risk, as shown by lowered FRS and estimated 10-year CVD risk".

Furthermore, in the review of the literature found in data bases of MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL, PsycINFO, and The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, Out of 1404 records, 37 RCTs included in the systematic review and 32 in the meta-analysis selected, researchers indicated that yoga attendees showed a significant in reduced risk of cardiovascular diseases through improvement for body mass index, systolic blood pressure, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol. weight loss, decreased diastolic blood pressure, total cholesterol, triglycerides, and heart rate.

The study also found no significant difference between yoga and exercise, excepted improvement of cardio health in yoga participants

Collectively, according to Dr. Cramer H, the efficacy of yoga in reduced cardio risk factors revealed evidences for clinical treatment as an ancillary intervention for the general population and patients with higher risk of cardiovascular disease, particularly for people with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
