A Loma Linda University study published in the September 2001 Journal of Nutrition confirmed what many pecan lovers already knew. Pecans are tasty and healthy, especially when it comes to lowering cholesterol. They discovered that adding a handful of pecans to a low-fat, cholesterol-lowering diet can dramatically increase its effectiveness. The pecan-enriched diet lowered total and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol twice as much as the American Heart Association (AHA) Step I diet. It also helped maintain healthy HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels, unlike the Step I diet, which often raises triglycerides and lowers HDL.
Your heart may not heal, but pecans can help keep it safe. According to New Mexico State University research, a 3/4 cup portion of pecans daily can significantly lower LDL cholesterol levels in the blood, helping to clear the arteries. Pecans also contain beneficial nutrients like zinc, vitamin E, and vitamin A, which help fight infections and cancer.
