Good news for almond lovers! A new study conducted at Loma Linda University and published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition suggests that people who include almonds in their diet have increased insulin sensitivity and lower levels of LDL cholesterol; both of which are risk factors for type 2 diabetes.
Michelle Wien, the lead study investigator stated, “”We have made great strides in chronic disease research from evidence of effective treatment to evidence of effective prevention. It is promising for those with risk factors for chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, that dietary changes may help to improve factors that play a potential role in the disease development.”
