The Traveling Nut: Researchers From Around the World Explore the Impact of Almonds on the Body

rol, LDL cholesterol, oxidative stress and inflammatory biomarkers.

Results: Researchers found that the almond diet led to a significant decrease in body fat by 1%, total cholesterol by 8%, LDL cholesterol by 13%, blood sugar by 6.7%, and insulin by 7.9%. Changes were also noted among the inflammatory biomarkers measured, as well as the resistance of LDL against oxidation, when tissues were tested in a laboratory environment. Researchers also found an increase in alpha-tocopherol or vitamin E levels in the blood. The NCEP Step II diet also resulted in changes in cardiovascular risk factors. The changes however were not as clinically meaningful as those noted with the almond diet.

Almonds and other Nuts May Impact HbA1c levels and Risk for Cardiovascular Disease(4)

Another new study presented at EB by Dr. Cyril Kendall and funded by the International Tree Nut Council Nutrition and Research and Education Foundation examined the impact of nuts, including almonds, on not only cardiovascular disease risk factors, but also hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels. HbA1c is a test used to estimate the management of blood sugar over the past two to three months. In this three month study, 117 individuals with diabetes treated with oral medication to help manage their blood sugar levels were randomly assigned to receive one of three diets, a full-dose mixed nut diet (75g), half-dose mixed nut diet (38g) and half portion of muffins or muffin diet (control). Researchers measured HbA1c levels, serum lipids, blood pressure, oxidative stress, and inflammatory biomarkers

Researchers found that the full dose mixed nut diet resulted in a significant improvement in glycemic control as indicated by a reduction in HbA1c levels (P<0.01). There was also a significant decrease in cardiovascular risk factors, total cholesterol (P<0.022) and LDL cholesterol (P<0.027), with the full dose
