In einer neuen Studie wurden Personen, die Nüsse essen, mit Personen verglichen, die keine Nüsse essen. Die Nuss-Esser hatten höhere HDL-Cholesterin-Spiegel („gutes“ Cholesterin) und geringere Spiegel an CRP (ein Entzündungsmarker). Ferner hatten sie im Schnitt ein geringeres Körpergewicht.

Consumers Of Tree Nuts Likely To Have Lower Body Weight And Lower Prevalence Of Health Risks

In a study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition[i], researchers compared risk factors for heart disease, type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome of nut consumers versus those who did not consume nuts. Tree nut (almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamias, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios and walnuts) consumption specifically, was associated with higher levels of high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (good cholesterol) and lower levels of C-reactive protein, a marker for inflammation which can lead to a variety of chronic diseases including heart disease.
