Health Tip: Nuts and Heart Health

By on January 21, 2020

Regular nut consumption can lower the risk of heart disease by up to 14 percent, says the American College of Cardiology. Nuts contain heart-healthy fats, protein, vitamins and minerals.

The group reminds people that a complete heart-healthy diet should include fruits, vegetables, beans, whole grains, low-fat dairy, fish and nuts.

But as one ounce of nuts can contain as many as 200 calories, be mindful of your portion size, the group says.
