Many people in today's modern climate are looking for a new way to destroy and reverse the effects of their unhealthy eating habits. One major thing to look into is how to reverse cholesterol problems. HDL cholesterol is considered the "good" cholesterol, and therefore should be emphasized. One way of doing this that scientists have found, is to eat almonds. In a study, 48 adults had controlled for eating a small amount of almonds, and those that had them were found to return to healthy levels of HDL.
- A study compared high density lipoprotein values in two different groups of participants, one of which consumed almonds, while the others had a muffin.
- Members on the almond regime experienced improved high density lipoprotein values and functionality.
- While low density lipoproteins are detriment in the body, increasing the risk of heart attack, high density lipoproteins are the exact opposite.
