Nuts Good for Cholesterol

More research backing up the cholesteroland triglyceride-lowering benefits of eating nuts indicates that for most people, consuming two handfuls of nuts a day appears to work better than one.  Specifically we are talking about walnuts, almonds, pistachios, macadamias, and hazelnuts.

Researchers who examined the results of 25 previous studies on the health effects of nut consumption found a dose-related improvement in participants’ blood-lipid levels.

The results are published this week in the Archives of Internal Medicine.
