The fact that nuts are good for health, has been known for a long time. But scientists are not tired of exploring the properties of this food product, opening up their new properties. So, the American experts from the University of Pennsylvania found out that peanuts have a beneficial effect on the state of the cardiovascular system.

Progress of the experiment

For the study, men with extra weight were invited. Excepting obesity, the representatives of the stronger sex were absolutely healthy.

The men were divided into two groups. The participants of the first association in addition to the basic diet have been eating peanuts. The representatives of the second group did not consume this kind of nuts. After eating, the participants of the experiment have been taken blood for analysis. It turned out that the amount of fat in the blood is inversely proportional to the eating of peanuts. And as you know, it is the fats that cause heart attacks and strokes.
