(ORDO NEWS) — There are many products that positively affect the cardiovascular system, but some stand out quite strongly due to their unique composition. So, experts advise to use walnuts more often, which are useful both for the brain and for the heart.
Walnuts contain substances that can reduce the risk of premature death by almost 50%. This was discovered by scientists from the Harvard School of Public Health Martha Guasch Ferre. The product is rich in alpha-linolenic acid, and its concentration is much higher than in any other nuts. It is also worth highlighting Omega-3 and substances that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Walnuts include a large amount of monounsaturated fats, so they should not be put on a par with other nuts. Significant improvement in the lipid profile in the body reduces the risk of heart and blood vessel problems by several times.
Previously, a large-scale study took place, which lasted 30 years. Surveillance of 200 thousand Americans revealed that walnuts reduce mortality by 45%. It is enough to take 3 servings of nuts per week.
Among the other properties of the product are slower tumor growth in breast cancer and a decrease in blood cholesterol. To maintain health, you do not need to eat nuts every day: a few meals during the week are enough. Small portions will positively affect your well-being and significantly reduce the risk of certain problems with the heart muscle.
