This report is a summary of the latest evidence on nuts and the important role they play in cardiovascular health. It also incorporates a summary of an updated systematic literature review (SLR) – which when combined with the original literature review, now includes over 150 studies – the findings of which support a general level health claim that daily nut consumption, as part of a healthy varied diet, contributes to heart health.
This long term study of 7500 people in 16 centres in Spain, followed for nearly five years, found eating a Mediterranean diet with a 30g handful of nuts a day improves Heart Disease, Metabolic Syndrome, Diabetes, Weight and Brain function. To date these PREDIMED study groups have published some 230 journal papers in peer reviewed journals and we have summarised those related to nut consumption here.
