Almonds: A key weapon in the fight against high blood pressure
If your blood pressure
is anything over 120/80mmHg, watch out. You’re suffering from mild to severe high blood pressure and you’re in danger.
It also means you need to add almonds onto your daily snack list.
This because, eating them – alongside a healthy diet
and regular exercise regime can significantly lower your blood pressure levels. (In fact, this is the reason almonds are included in the heart-healthy Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension – or DASH – Diet.)
But what do they do?
Well, as researchers explain, healthy monounsaturated fat
in almonds contribute to lower blood cholesterol levels, triglycerides and reduced arterial inflammation. This essentially lowers the pressure inside your arteries and your blood pressure drops as a direct result.
And it’s not a small reduction either.
As a recent clinical trial, published in Circulation
, on almonds and their ability to coronary heart disease
risk factors like high blood pressure revealed:
When used as snack, ten almonds a day can effectively create a 10% reduction in bad cholesterol (LDLs) in as little as 30 days.
That’s significant when you consider bad cholesterol is one of the biggest dangers for high blood pressure.
Just make sure the nuts you eat aren't salted or coated with sugar or you’ll defeat the purpose.
