Almonds can increase levels of good cholesterol, study finds
Research published in the Journal of Nutrition states that eating almonds regularly can help increase (HDL) levels, while helping to protect the body from bad cholesterol (LDL)
Scientists compared the levels and function of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol in people who ate almonds every day, with that of people who ate muffins. And they found that people who ate almonds got better levels of HDL.
According to the researchers, the study builds on previous research on the effects of almonds on cholesterol-lowering diets. This is because, according to them, there are many studies that prove that almond consumption can lower low-density lipoprotein, or LDL cholesterol, an important risk factor for heart disease. However, there was as yet no evidence that almonds could contribute to the rise in HDL (good cholesterol).
The current study was attended by 48 men and 48 women with high bad cholesterol. They were on a six-week diet. In both cases, the diets were the same except at snack time. Participants who completed the diet including the consumption of almonds received 43 grams of the food. At the end of each diet, the researchers measured the HDL cholesterol levels of each participant. At the end of each diet, the researchers measured the HDL cholesterol levels of each participant. When compared to the beginning of the diet, scientists found that the diet with almonds increased the amount of HDL.
Scientists say that although almonds do not eliminate the risk of heart disease, they may be a good choice for a healthy snack.
