According to Healthiersteps.com, 
“drinking vegetable broth can reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and improve heart health. Studies have shown that consuming 1 to 2 cups per day can help prevent cardiovascular diseases such as myocardial infarction, stroke, atherosclerosis, and coronary artery disease. In some cases, just a few weeks of regular consumption can show positive results. If you’re already suffering from cardiovascular issues, drink vegetable broth regularly to help minimize risk factors like elevated triglycerides and high blood pressure.”
