  • 1. Advancing Products with Proven Science NMR News: Volume 3, Issue 5, May 2010 Recent Study Shows Consumption of Nuts May Be Beneficial to Heart Health Summary by: Charles Spielholz, Ph.D. Data pooled from 25 clinical trials supported the observation that the consumption of nuts is beneficial to heart health. The results of this pooled analysis were reported on May 10, 2010 by Joan Sabaté, Keiji Oda, and Emilio Ros.1 The analysis showed that the consumption of an average of 67 grams of nuts a day for at least 3 weeks resulted in a 5.1% decrease in cholesterol levels, a 7.4% decrease in low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels, an 8.3% decrease in the ratio of LDL-cholesterol to high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, and a 5.6% decrease in the ratio of total cholesterol to HDL-cholesterol. In addition, triglyceride levels were decreased 10.2% in those individuals with blood triglyceride levels that were greater than 150 mg/dL, but not in individuals with lower triglyceride levels. The lipid lowering effects of nut consumption was greater in individuals with lower body mass indexes. Each of these parameters was compared against a control group. The authors concluded that the incorporation of nuts into the daily diet will result in an improvement in blood lipid levels especially in individuals following a healthy diet. Reference: 1.
