Foods High In Cholesterol - Can Almonds Really Decrease Your Cholesterol Levels?

Author : jeanetta flynn


New research has found that eating almonds may possibly assist lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Almonds, compared to other nuts, are especially high in calcium, this makes them a great wholesome alternative for anyone who could be lactose intolerant and Almond 'milk' can be a very good substitute for men and women who may possibly not like soy milk.

The researchers suggest that the almonds, instead of being one of the foods high in cholesterol, have an effect on lowering C-reactive. This is a substance inside the blood, a sort of protein. High levels of C-reactive are identified to be linked to inflamation inside the arteries and this raises blood pressure, so anything that has the effect of lowering the C-reative proteins within the blood is good for the entire cardiovascular system. This helps with lowering high blood pressure, reduces the risks of a complete list of heart and artery diseases including heart attacks, cardiovascular diseases and the ricks of having a stroke or TIA.

They set up two groups of men and women: The 1st group were put on a low fat diet. The 2nd group were told to eat a handful of almonds each day and a diet high in soy, like soya milk as opposed to cows, and also foods high in fibre and plant sterols.

The patients had their blood levels checked before the begin of the dietary changes and at the end of just two weeks. The researchers discovered that the patients in the group with the almonds, high fibre and soy substitutes had managed to decrease their bad LDL cholesterol by more than 30 per cent. Whereas the group that were on just the low fat diet saw extremely little change in their test outcomes.

As a large fan of eating nuts and seeds I am pleased to discover that almonds aren't one of the Foods High in Cholesterol.
