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.

More About Walnuts:

Walnuts contain the highest amount of omega-3 fats of any other nuts. Besides there amazing ability to lower triglycerides and reduce plaque formation, they also support brain function, improve your mood, and help with depression.

Make sure that you buy ‘organic raw walnuts’ and that there flesh is white rather than yellow (indicates rancidity).

  1. My own cholesterol level was a little high, so I took green tea capsules,omega 3, vitamin c 500mg and vitamin b3. The level had returned to normal after about 6 months.

  2. I love walnuts ! The problem is that you can only eat about a handful of them before eating too much fat. Fish is much better in that sense.

  3. Walnuts are good, and now they look even better.

    Fish are good too, with higher amounts of omega-3 than nuts.

    Let us take them together then.

  4. I’m a strong believer in natural foods to lower body cholesterol. Walnuts are very good but this new insight will make people eat more walnuts now, not just as snacks but part of meals. I’m just wondering what will happen to people who are allergic?
    I do cholesterol research, please find my site at http://tipsforlowercholesterol.com/how-lower-cholesterol.html

  5. I just wanted to say that I started eating a handful of walnuts almost everyday and I lowered my cholesterol by 30 points in just a few months! My cholesterol reading was at 249 and my doctor wanted to put me on cholesterol medicine. I did not want to take medication because of all the side effects, so I told him to let me try on my own first. He agreed but said if I wasn’t able to lower it on my own then I would have to take medication. My cholesterol reading is now 219 and I’m hoping next time it will be below 200. I truely believe it is because of the walnuts since I really didn’t change much else.

  6. Stop killing fish and start eating walnuts!
