While many of us know that Almonds are a great sharpening tool for our memory, recent studies have proven that Almonds are a great source of health for the heart and aid the heart tremendously in staying disease-free.
Published in the journal Nutrients, a collected review of more than 1500 studies, says that adding Almonds to your daily healthy diet provides a whole world of nutrition and added health to the heart. The addition of Almonds can also be responsible for cutting down dyslipidemia, a huge risk factor towards heart disease. Soumik Kalita, the leading author of the study, said that: “Daily consumption of 45 grams of almonds in any form (crushed, wholesome, or in snacks) can help reduce dyslipidemia". Dyslipidemia is a condition highlighted by high cholesterol levels as well as triglyceride levels.
Kalita, Founder of Gurgaon-based FamPhy, a circle of doctors which perform home visits, continued to say: “Typically, dietary strategies to reduce harmful LDL-cholesterol, such as decreasing saturated fat, also reduce beneficial HDL cholesterol, but that is not the case with almonds,”
Cause & Other Nuts To Add
Heart conditions can arise from many several causes such as poor diet, lack of regular exercise and a high intake of sugar, salt, and fats can result in obesity, diabetes and countless other health issues. Several other types of nuts boast huge health benefits and come highly recommended as healthy additions to an already healthy diet you may be following. Cashews, for example, are incredibly rich in Vitamin E as well as Vitamin B6. Walnuts, which are considered a Superfood, are massively loaded on incredible benefits like Omega-3 fatty acids, protein, antioxidants to purge those toxins and much more and Pistachios have been proven to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease in the body.
