A recent scientific study has shown that consumption of only a handful of walnuts a day gives the consumer a possibility to protect themselves from heart disease. So, if we take nuts on a regular basis we can get full-time protection.
The study also confirmed that there is a huge improvement when it comes to cholesterol levels and blood vessel flexibility. This is great for the blood flow and these results were confirmed only four hours after the participants in this study consumed the nuts or taken nut oil.
People should make nuts part of their daily diet because by eating nuts on a regular basis we will be protected against a myriad of cardiovascular diseases. Namely, nuts affect the risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease.
According to Dr. Penny Kris Etherton, Penn State University professor, by taking walnut oil or a handful of walnuts for just four days per week, people can drastically lower the chances of developing heart disease.
This study was able to find the active ingredients in walnuts that make them so great for human health.
In addition, we should point out that by consuming 51 grams or three tablespoons of walnut oil you will be able to optimize the blood vessels in less than four hours. Walnut oil is great for the endothelial cells. These cells are creating a barrier around the blood vessels and manage their flexibility.
