We all have our preferences when it comes to nuts and that's fine however today we've got news for all you nut-haters and it's not good! If you're not one fond of nuts, then trust us, now is the time to start eating them because recent reports by the International Nut & Dried Fruit Council (INC) state that nuts have beneficial effects on the human health.
The study examined the effect of the intake of nuts on inflammatory biomarkers and endothelial function associated with cardiovascular disease. It also analyzed the intake of total and specific types of nuts and heart health. This study has also been listed in the BMJ Open journal. As per the studies, reports suggest that nuts were consumed in prescribed doses of 18 to 85g/day or as a specific percentage of the dietary energy and it was found that nuts had a positive impact on the flow-mediated dilation, which is a measure of the endothelial function. The study findings were also in accordance with those observed by the European Food Safety Authority in 2011 which claimed that ‘Walnuts contribute to the improvement of the elasticity of blood vessels’.
