Health Nut - Walnuts

Walnuts are one of the super foods. Walnuts are rich in fibre and this fibre stimulates the production of bile which draws out unwanted cholesterol in the liver. Walnuts also contain omega-3 fatty acids which are vital in the making of the positive type of cholesterol. This positive cholesterol aids in breaking down the bad cholesterol in our system.

Three oz. of walnuts a day can lessen the bad cholesterol. However, people with normal cholesterol level can take only as much as a handful the day before they plan to have a rich meal. Reason for that is because the fibre helps prevent the saturated fat from turning into unwanted cholesterol.
