New research shows that eating a handful of walnuts a day provides immediately protection against heart disease. Eating them regularly will greatly decrease the risk and provide permanent protection from heart disease.
Scientists have also found that daily consumption of walnuts can prevent cardiovascular diseases, and they also reduce the cholesterol levels and improve the elasticity of blood vessels. After 4 hours only, the walnut oil will improve the blood flow in your body.
“And only by consuming a handful of walnuts or walnut oil for four days in a week you can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease,” said Dr. Penny Kris Eterton, professor of nutrition at Penn State University in Pennsylvania.
This study is the first to identify the active constituents in walnuts that provide the greatest health benefits. Only by eating three tablespoons (51 g) of walnut oil can you improve the condition of your blood vessels in 4 hours.
Walnut oil is amazing for the integrity of endothelial cells. These cells line blood vessels and are held as responsible for their flexibility.
