A Large-Scale Study Confirms the Cardiovascular Benefits of Walnuts
A large-scale review of clinical trials for the past 25 years confirms that walnuts are the great choice for people who want to support their cardiovascular health.
The scientists reviewed 26 randomized studies with 1,059 participants in total whose age was from 22 to 75. The benefits of a diet rich in walnuts were compared to low-fat, Western, Mediterranean, and Japanese diets.
The analysis showed that a diet rich in walnuts had 3.25% greater reduction in total cholesterol levels, 3.73% greater decrease in LDL cholesterol, and 5.52% greater reduction of triglycerides.
Dr. Michael Roizen, the chief wellness officer in the Department of Preventive Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, says: “This updated review further strengthens the case that enjoying walnuts is a great (and tasty) way to add important nutrients to your diet while supporting the health of your heart.”
