Chances of having a heart attack are lesser to people who often eat various types of a peanut compared to those who don’t, according to research released recently. The Journal of the American College of Cardiology, eating walnuts five times a week, peanuts and various types of tree nuts are associated with the 14% of the downscale of the danger of heart attack and 20% of the deplete of complication that leads to untimely passing due to the hardening of arteries.

Walnuts appear to be a significant source, base on more than 210,000 people who answered on the regular survey which is part of the 32 years of research.

“After looking at individual nut consumption, eating walnuts one or more times per week was associated with a 19 percent lower risk of cardiovascular disease and 21 percent lower risk of coronary heart disease,” report said.

People who eat peanuts two times or more every week has about 13% lesser chances of the danger of heart attack compared to people who don’t consume it. Those who eat tree nuts such as almonds, cashews, chestnuts, and pistachios has 15% lesser chances of the risk of heart disease.

“Our findings support recommendations of increasing the intake of a variety of nuts, as part of healthy dietary patterns, to reduce the risk of chronic disease in the general populations,” said the lead author, Marta Guasch-Ferre, Department of Nutrition in Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

Several studies in the past that examine the benefits of eating peanuts on the person’s health. The newest research shows the connection between particular types of peanut and known heart diseases. However, because this is an observational study base from self-reported questionnaire responses, we couldn’t prove the cause and effect.

“Ideally, further investigations should test the effects of long-term consumption of nuts supplemented into the usual diet on hard cardiometabolic events,” base on accompanying editorial of Emilio Ros, a doctor from Hospital Clinic in Barcelona.

“In the meantime, raw nuts, if possible unpeeled and otherwise unprocessed, may be considered as natural health capsules that can be easily incorporated into any heart-protective diet to further cardiovascular well-being and promote healthy aging,” he added.
