Eat Nuts Daily for Heart Health

Go ahead and snack on nuts -- they will satisfy your hunger faster.

According to a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, eating nuts on a regular basis can help to change blood lipid chemistry to reduce the risk of coronary artery disease and death from a heart attack. Nuts are loaded with beneficial monounsaturated and Omega-3 fats, which directly control the size of LDL cholesterol particles Ė thatís the BAD cholesterol. Nuts also contain oxidation properties which make the LDL particles less cohesive and less likely to form plaque.
Itís important to note that eating nuts is just one powerful tool in your dietary toolbox for fighting heart disease. To dramatically lower your risk of heart disease you must cut out refined carbohydrates and gluten-rich foods. You must also eliminate refined sugar as a sugar-rich diet fuels atherogenic blood fats and heart disease. Use nuts as a compliment to your naturally healthy diet. Almonds and walnuts are particularly good choices.
