National Nut Day
Nuts are a good protein food. Yes, they have fats, but largely unsaturated, heart- which have been shown to lower . Researchers have found that people who eat nuts regularly have lower .*
*See the 1996, the Iowa Women's Healthy Study, the Harvard School of Public Health study and the 2002, the Physician's Health Study.
That makes nuts a heart-healthy food. In 2003, the FDA approved the following claim for seven different types of nuts, which contain less than 4g of saturated fats per 50g:
|“Scientific evidence suggests but does not prove that eating 1.5 oz per day of most nuts as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.”|
The “Magnificent Seven” of nuts include:
These varieties of nut contain less than 4g of saturated fats per 50g. If certain favorites aren’t on the list—for example, macadamia nuts—it’s because they’re higher in saturated fat (the bad fat).
- Fiber, part of all nuts, which helps to lower cholesterol and may play a role in preventing diabetes.
- L-arginine, which an amino acid that may make artery walls more flexible and thus less prone to blood clots that can create heart attacks.
- Omega-, which, among other heart benefits, prevent dangerous heart rhythms that can lead to heart attacks.
- Plant sterols, which help to lower cholesterol.
- Unsaturated fats, which are believed to lower cholesterol levels.
- Vitamin E, which may help stop the development of plaques in your arteries and prevent coronary artery disease or a heart attack.
Of course, you can have other types of nuts. You’ll just get less (good) fat and more saturated (bad) fat.
