Walnuts Lower Cholesterol More Than Fish
(OrganicJar) A new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that incorporating approximately 1.5 ounces of walnuts — a handful of whole nuts or about three tablespoons of chopped nuts — into your daily diet lowered serum total cholesterol by 5.4 percent and low-density lipoprotein, or “bad,” cholesterol by 9.3 percent.

In healthy individuals, walnuts lower cholesterol more than fish, fatty fish lower triglycerides and both lower heart disease risk, U.S. researchers said.

“The practical significance of the study is that eating an easy-to-incorporate amount of walnuts and fatty fish can cause meaningful decreases in blood cholesterol and triglycerides even in healthy individuals,” lead author Sujatha Rajaram of Loma Linda University School of Public Health said in a statement.
