  • Two handfuls of nuts a day (around 60 grams) may lower blood cholesterol by 5% – and in particular ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol by 7%.
  • A handful of nuts (30 grams) at least five times a week may reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 27% in women, and improves blood glucose and insulin sensitivity.
  • Including nuts in your healthy-eating plan can help with weight management and reduce the risk of developing obesity.
  • A daily handful of nuts has been linked with living longer.
  • Enjoy eating a Mediterranean diet? The PREDIMED studies show adding 30 grams of nuts a day improves longevity, cardiovascular health, diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
