Bigenu (Pecan, American pecans) is one of the top ten nuts in the world, and nutritious and delicious, deeply loved. Recently, the University of Georgia has proven that Bigenes can significantly improve people’s cholesterol levels.
A study conducted by researchers at the University of Georgia University and Consumer Sciences show that the cardiovascular disease risk participants eat beige fruit during the 8-week intervention period, with total cholesterol, triglycerides and low density lipoproteins (LDL, “Bad” cholesterol) has no significant improvement.
Jamie Cooper, one of the authors, “Professor US Nutrition Science” said “” In the context of different interventions, this kind of diet intervention is very successful. In fact, some people have high cholesterol at the beginning of the study, no longer belong to this after intervention. One category. “
The researchers found that the total cholesterol of the participants of the eating projections fell by 5%, and low density lipoproteins decreased by 6% to 9%.
The researchers refer to previous meta-analysis, analyzed 51 cases of exercise interventions aimed at lowering cholesterol, showing that the total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein cholesterol were reduced by 1% and 5%.
Cooper pointed out that adding the biting fruit in the diet but also a more sustainable long-term health method than many other lifestyle. Some studies have shown that even if low-density lipoproteins are reduced by 1%, these reductions are absolutely clinically significant.
The researchers divided 52 ages between ages 30 and 75, and the advanced cardiovascular disease is divided into three groups: a group of people eat 68 grams per day or about 470 calories as part of their daily diet. The second group uses Bijiang fruit to replace the same heat in the daily diet; and the control group does not eat the bits. After 8 weeks, participants had high fat food to determine the changes of blood lipids and blood sugar.
There is a similar improvement in the fills of the two Bigenfather Groups, while the glyceride triaphrague added after the addition of the bunch of fruit group has decreased, and the glucose level after the meal of Bigen has decreased. Cooper said: “Whether people add Bi roots in the diet or use Bijiang fruit to replace other foods, we have seen improved, especially in terms of total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein cholesterol,”
The researchers pointed out that the biological activity characteristics of Bigeny may be the mechanism to promote this improvement. Bigen is rich in healthy fatty acids and fibers, both of which are related to lower cholesterol. The results have been published on the “Nutrition Magazine”.
