New research has found that eating just a handful of nuts per day provides immediate protection against heart disease. Regular intake would provide permanent protection. Researcher also shows a significant improvement in cholesterol levels and flexibility of blood vessels, which is vital for healthful blood flow, just 4 hours after people ate nuts or nut oil.
We should all be including walnuts in our diets because regular consumption protects against many types of cardiovascular disease due to their effect on serum cardiovascular risk factors.
“And only by consuming a handful of walnuts or walnut oil for four days in a week you can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease,” said Dr. Penny Kris Etherton, professor of nutrition at Penn State University in Pennsylvania.
This study is the first of its kind to identify active constituents in walnuts that provide the greatest health benefits. And by eating a mere three tablespoons (51 g) of walnut oil can you improve the condition of your blood vessels in just 4 hours.
The oil proved to be especially beneficial for the endothelial cells– the cells that line the blood vessels and play an important role in their flexibility
Pretty amazing discovery isn’t it? The powerful medicinal properties of simple raw foods that we as humanity are now re-discovering are SO mind-blowing. It sure does remind me of that time the FDA claimed walnuts were “drugs”.
