Almonds Reduce Risk Of Heart Disease

June 30, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
A daily serving of almonds in the diet boosts the level of antioxidants and reduces the risk of heart disease, according to British scientists. The study tested the impact of an almond-rich diet on both healthy middle-aged and young men, and on younger men who were both overweight and hypertensive. Researchers found that at the end of the study those who had eaten an almond-enriched diet – 50 grams a day – had higher levels of alpha-tocopherol in their bloodstream, improved blood flow and lower blood pressure, potentially reducing their risk of heart disease.
