According to the old customers it is believed that having almonds daily is good for health, But according to the recent researches it has been found that daily munching of almonds at about a handful one may help you in boosting the level of good cholesterol in the body as well as improve its functionality.

The almonds not very soon enlarged the levels of good cholesterol as per the answer showed that— high-density lipoprotein (HDL cholesterol), but also helps remove the bad cholesterol — low-density lipoprotein (LDL cholesterol) — from the body.

Almonds works by gathering cholesterol from tissues, like the arteries, and helping to transport it out of the body, professor at the Pennsylvania State University, Penny Kris-Etherton said “HDL is very small when it gets released into circulation. It’s like a garbage bag that slowly gets bigger and more spherical as it gathers cholesterol from cells and tissues before depositing them in the liver to be broken down.”

Into five “sub-populations,” HDL cholesterol is categorize, Depending on how much cholesterol it has collected, which range from the very small pre-beta-1 to the larger, more mature a-1.

As per the Nutrition journals, the team, in two six-week experiment analysed a group of people who ate 43 grams — about a handful — of almonds every day, and the same group when they ate a banana muffin.

The results showed that eating almonds resulted in increased a-1 HDL by 19 per cent as well as improved HDL function by 6.4 per cent — indicating a decrease in the overall risk of cardiovascular disease.

While the risk of heart diseases will not totally eliminate by almonds, they may be a smart choice for a healthy snack, as they also provide a dose of good fats, vitamin E and fibre, the research said. “Almonds not a cure-all, but when eaten in moderation — and especially when eaten instead of a food of lower nutritional value — they’re a great addition to an already healthy diet,” Kris-Etherton said.

Depending on how much cholesterol it has collected, HDL cholesterol is categorised into five “subpopulations”, which range from the very small pre-beta-1 to the larger, more mature a-1.

The Journal paper of Nutrition in their study has published, the team, in two six-week experiment analyzed a group of people who ate 43 grams — about a handful — of almonds every day, and the same group when they ate a banana muffin.

After the research the results show that consumption of almonds resulted in increased a-1 HDL by 19 per cent as well as enhanced HDL function by 6.4 per cent — indicating a reduce in the overall risk of cardiovascular disease.

The heart disease risk is totally not eliminate by the almonds alone, it is always considered as a smart choice for a healthy snack, as they also provide a dose of good fats, vitamin E and fibre, the research said.

“Almonds when eaten in self-control not a cure-all, but when particularly when eaten instead of a food of lower dietary value — they’re a great adding together to an already healthy diet,” Kris-Etherton said.
