Weekly nut consumption lowers heart rhythm irregularity risk, as one of the most well liked snack by humans since millions of the years. as the every time the science brings it in focus, the nuts are continuously becoming even more popular carrying number of health benefits, which now include the capabilities of protecting heart from several problems.
A recent appreciable research has shown that the nuts are able to diminish the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, with the help of its contents such as minerals, fiber and unsaturated fatty acids in higher level. Since, its merits are limited and largely dependent upon the some healthy behaviors.
Research team at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden has just shed a new light on the theory of benefits with the nut consumption, the findings of which have been disclosed in the journal Heart, this week.
According to the team, consuming a platter of nuts once to thrice a month is more likely to reduce the risk of atrial fibrillation by just three per cent, while a once to twice a week consumption can cut the risk by 12 per cent and more than three times a week helps reduce the risk by 18 per cent.
Researchers wrote explaining the study that, “Nut consumption or factors associated with this nutritional behavior may play a role in reducing the risk of atrial fibrillation and possibly heart failure.”
“Since only a small proportion of this population had moderate (about 5 percent) or high (less than 2 percent) nut consumption, even a small increase in nut consumption may have large potential to lead to a reduction in the incidence of atrial fibrillation and heart failure in this population,” the research team suggests.
