People who ate walnuts had a significant reduction in inflammation, according to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
The results of this study show the anti-inflammatory effects of walnuts to reduce cardiovascular disease beyond lowering cholesterol.
While these results are promising, the research has its limitations. Participants in the study were healthy older adults who had the option of eating a variety of other foods in addition to walnuts. In addition, more research is needed on more diverse populations in this area.
