A handful of fragrant nuts without salt is good cholesterol, a fighter with plaque in the arteries. How many grams of almonds are there per day? Researchers in Pennsylvania advised.
Heart disease is caused by low levels of "positive" cholesterol and high levels of "bad" fat. What is "good" or "good" cholesterol? These are red fish grown on natural feed (carefully choose producers), flaxseed and mustard oil, nuts. Almonds (peeled, but not fried) are called the champion in the amount of healthy fats.
To raise the level of "good" cholesterol in the body by 19%, it is enough to eat 43 grams (about a handful) of almonds every day, - say scientists from the University of Pennsylvania (USA). The second useful property of almonds is to remove "bad" cholesterol from the blood and reduce the amount of plaque on the walls of blood arteries (they are deposited when we eat a lot of butter or often eat in inexpensive public catering).
How is this confirmed? Scientists tracked the performance of 48 people (30 to 65 years old) who had high levels of "bad" cholesterol. For six weeks, part of the group ate 43 grams of almonds for an afternoon snack, and another part of the group ate banana muffin with butter.
A blood test on the final day of the experiment showed that almonds really remove plaque cholesterol and strengthen our body (even helps it to resist bowel cancer). Needless to say, it showed the blood of muffin lovers? Butter combined with sugar, flour and dough increased the amount of "bad" fat in the blood. We draw conclusions.
