Almonds Reduce Blood Sugar and Cholesterol
Scientists from Toronto and London claim that cholesterol and blood sugar can be reduced if you eat together almonds and white bread. However, this is not recommended to all individuals, because almonds are rich in fat.
It is fortunate that this exquisitely flavored and diverse almond is accessible throughout the year. Every individual should introduce this nut into his/hers everyday diet so as to create tasty and, even more importantly, healthy addition to various dishes.
Although it sounds incredible, cholesterol and blood sugar levels can be reduced if you eat almonds and white bread together. This claim comes from some scientists from Toronto and London who have dealt with the impact of this unusual combination. Volunteers participating in the study ate daily 50 grams of white bread with 30, 60 or 90 grams of almonds.
After some time, it was shown that sugar and cholesterol levels in the blood were significantly lower compared with the time when they only ate bread. Also, the effect is the most emphasized in those people who consumed 90 grams of almonds per day.
However, this amount is not recommended to all, because almonds are rich in fat, and 90 grams contains even up to 510 calories.
