Eating a variety of nuts as part of a healthy diet may be good for your heart, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Research studies on people who eat nuts as part of their diet have found nuts help lower the LDL, low-density lipoprotein, or bad cholesterol level in the blood.
Eating nuts may reduce your risk of developing blood clots that can cause a heart attack and improve the health of the lining of your arteries.
Nuts are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and are one of the best plant-based sources. These fatty acids help your heart by preventing dangerous heart rhythms that can lead to heart attacks.
Nuts are a great source of vitamin E. Vitamin E my help stop the development of plaques in your arteries which can narrow them and lead to coronary artery disease or heart attack.
Although research does point to benefits of nuts to your heart health the Food and Drug Administration only allows food companies to say the evidence “suggests but does not prove” eating nuts reduces heart disease risk. But, according to the FDA, eating a handful of nuts a day, about 1.5 ounces, may reduce your risk of heart disease.
