It's no secret that nuts are a healthy and filling snack. But one particular variety is getting attention for its ability to significantly lower cholesterol.
A new study out of Penn State shows this delicious nut may help you crunch your way to lower cholesterol and a healthier heart.
And here's the best part — it's jam-packed with heart-protecting fatty acids that go to work to protect your heart in minutes!
Choose walnuts and protect your heart in minutes
Researchers at Penn State asked 15 overweight
adults with high cholesterol to add tasty walnuts to their daily diet. They could eat whole nuts, just the meat of the nuts, or drink a small helping of walnut oil.
The results were astonishing.
Just one teaspoon of walnut oil after a meal was all it took to improve blood vessel integrity.
People who ate whole walnuts saw an extra benefit, too — the fatty acids in walnuts actually helped their bodies remove excess cholesterol.
That means less sticky grease clogging up your arteries, just waiting to cause a heart attack.
Nine walnuts a day is all it takes to reap these heart healthy benefits
A handful of walnuts contain almost twice as much antioxidants as any other common nut. And they’re powerful because of their omega-3 fatty acid content.
They’re protein-filled, can substitute for meat; contain vitamin B6, magnesium, dietary fibre. They’re also dairy and gluten-free. So anyone can eat them.
Start including walnuts into your daily menu and your next cholesterol test could be a breeze.
And don’t worry if you’re not a big fan of walnuts. All you need are nine walnuts a day or one teaspoon of walnut oil to get its powerful, heart-building benefits.
