As per a US study, people with diabetes who regularly eat nuts may be less likely to develop heart disease than their counterparts who rarely consume nuts. The data was found in a study by Gang Liu who is a nutrition researcher at Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health in Boston.
The study found that the diabetics who ate at least 28 grams serving of nuts a week were 17 percent less likely to develop heart disease than the people with diabetes who had no more than one serving of nuts weekly.
However, only one serving of nuts might still be good for the heart. For people with diabetes adding just one extra serving of nuts a week was associated with a three percent lower risk of developing the cardiac condition and sic percent lower risk of receiving a heart problem.
According to a study, eating too many nuts may not be a good thing necessarily. However, a handful of nuts are beneficial for the heart but it is still not clear that what the ideal serving size of the nuts is.
Tree nuts such as walnuts, almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, pistachios, pecans, macadamias, hazelnuts, and pine nuts were more strongly linked to a lower risk of heart disease than peanuts, which are actually legumes that grow underground.
