Sometimes You Feel Like a Nut

NOVEMBER 01, 2002

According to a new study published in Circulation, there?s a good chance that eating almonds can lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels and help reduce the risk of heart disease.

A clinical trial conducted at the University of Toronto found that subjects who ate about 1 ounce (or a handful) of almonds each day lowered their LDL cholesterol by 4.4% from baseline. The study showed an even greater decrease of 9.4% in LDL cholesterol in those who ate about 2 handfuls of almonds a day, indicating that the effect of almonds increases with increased consumption. None of the people in the study gained weight.
