American scientists claim that daily consumption of walnuts can prevent stroke and heart attack, writes “Orthodox”.
Scientists conducted a study involving 15 people suffering from excess weight and obesity. Volunteers were divided into two groups. The first group was given only fatty foods and drink based on walnuts. Participants who were in a second group received the same food and the placebo. The researchers measured the levels of fats and insulin levels before and after eating, and with the help of ultrasound is determined by the degree of passage of blood through the arteries.
Experts have established that the process of clogging of the arteries is suspended, if included in the diet with walnuts. Reducing the level of unhealthy fats reduces the risk of blockages and cardiovascular disease.
