https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5525107
The Journal of Nutrition; Berryman CE, Fleming JA et. al.

Jun 16th, 2017 - Background: Almonds may increase circulating HDL cholesterol when substituted for a high-carbohydrate snack in an isocaloric diet, yet little is known about the effects on HDL biology and function.Objective: The objective was to determine whether incorporating 43 g almonds/d in a cholesterol-lowering diet would improve HDL subspecies and function, which were secondar...

Dietary Almonds Increase Serum HDL Cholesterol in Coronary Artery Disease...

The Journal of Nutrition; Jamshed H, Sultan FA et. al.

Aug 14th, 2015 - More than one-half of coronary artery disease (CAD) patients have low HDL cholesterol despite having well-managed LDL cholesterol. Almond supplementation has not been shown to elevate circulating HDL cholesterol concentrations in clinical trials, perhaps because the baseline HDL cholesterol of trial subjects was not low. This clinical trial was designed to test the e...

Nutrition, Metabolism, and Cardiovascular Diseases : NMCD; Jaceldo-Siegl K, Sabaté J et. al.

May 17th, 2011 - Short-term (4-9 weeks) human feeding trials have shown nut consumption to reduce serum total cholesterol (TC) and LDL-cholesterol (LDL). We hypothesized that individual levels of BMI, LDL, TC and triglycerides modify the cholesterol-lowering effect of almonds in a 24-week almond supplementation trial in a free-living population. We performed secondary analysis on dat...

Almonds reduce biomarkers of lipid peroxidation in older hyperlipidemic subjects.
https://doi.org/10.1093/jn/138.5.908
The Journal of Nutrition; Jenkins DJ, Kendall CW et. al.

Apr 22nd, 2008 - Nut consumption has been associated with reduced coronary heart disease (CHD) risk. In addition to cholesterol-lowering properties, almonds have been shown to lower oxidized LDL concentrations. However, little is known regarding their effects on other markers of oxidative stress. The dose-response effects of whole almonds, taken as snacks, were compared with low-saturated f...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4658458
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition; Del Gobbo LC, Falk MC et. al.

Nov 13th, 2015 - The effects of nuts on major cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors, including dose-responses and potential heterogeneity by nut type or phytosterol content, are not well established. We examined the effects of tree nuts (walnuts, pistachios, macadamia nuts, pecans, cashews, almonds, hazelnuts, and Brazil nuts) on blood lipids [total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) ...

Metabolism: Clinical and Experimental; Jenkins DJ, Kendall CW et. al.

Jun 17th, 2008 - Nuts appear to have a marked effect in cohort studies in reducing the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD), but their demonstrated ability to lower cholesterol can only explain a proportion of the reduction in risk. Our aim was to assess whether improvement in carbohydrate metabolism provides a further explanation for the effect of nuts in reducing CHD. The effects of whole almonds...

Crossover study of diets enriched with virgin olive oil, walnuts or almonds. Eff...
https://doi.org/10.1016/j.numecd.2010.12.006
Nutrition, Metabolism, and Cardiovascular Diseases : NMCD; Damasceno NR, Pérez-Heras A et. al.

Mar 23rd, 2011 - Virgin olive oil (VOO) and nuts are basic components of the Mediterranean diet, a heart-healthy dietary pattern. Nuts have well known cholesterol lowering effects, while evidence is unclear for VOO. We designed a study in hypercholesterolemic patients to assess the effects on serum lipids and other intermediate markers of cardiovascular risk of replacing 40% of the fat in the back...

Lipids in Health and Disease; Williams PT, Bergeron N et. al.

Apr 5th, 2019 - Almonds have been shown to lower LDL cholesterol but there is limited information regarding their effects on the dyslipidemia characterized by increased levels of very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) and small, dense low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particles that is associated with abdominal adiposity and high carbohydrate intake. The objective of the present study was to test wheth...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4330049
Journal of the American Heart Association; Berryman CE, West SG et. al.

Jan 7th, 2015 - Evidence consistently shows that almond consumption beneficially affects lipids and lipoproteins. Almonds, however, have not been evaluated in a controlled-feeding setting using a diet design with only a single, calorie-matched food substitution to assess their specific effects on cardiometabolic risk factors. In a randomized, 2-period (6 week/period), crossover, controlled-feeding study...

Effect of almond consumption on vascular function in patients with coronary artery dise...
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4469426
Nutrition Journal; Chen CY, Holbrook M et. al.

Jun 18th, 2015 - Almonds reduce cardiovascular disease risk via cholesterol reduction, anti-inflammation, glucoregulation, and antioxidation. The objective of this randomized, controlled, cross-over trial was to determine whether the addition of 85 g almonds daily to a National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) Step 1 diet (ALM) for 6 weeks would improve vascular function and infl...

Leslie S. Baumann, MD

Aug 12th, 2014 - A tree species belonging to the Rosaceae family and native to the Middle East and South Asia, Prunus dulcis (also called Prunus amygdalus), popularly known as almond, is cultivated widely in warm, arid locations and used primarily for its edible seeds (J. Agric.

French Fries vs Almonds Every Day for a Month: What Changes?
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/970305

Mar 15th, 2022 - Eat french fries every day for a month? Sure, as long as it's for science. That's exactly what 107 people did in a scientific study, while 58 others ate a daily serving of almonds with the same number of calories. At the end of the study, the researchers found no significant differences between the groups in people's total amount of fat or their fasting glucose measures, according to the...

HDL cholesterol efflux capacity and incident cardiovascular events.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4308988
The New England Journal of Medicine; Rohatgi A, Khera A et. al.

Nov 19th, 2014 - It is unclear whether high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol concentration plays a causal role in atherosclerosis. A more important factor may be HDL cholesterol efflux capacity, the ability of HDL to accept cholesterol from macrophages, which is a key step in reverse cholesterol transport. We investigated the epidemiology of cholesterol efflux capacity an...

Which promote greater metabolic health, almonds or potatoes? Rigorous, randomized trial weighs in
https://www.eurekalert.org/news-releases/945587

Mar 7th, 2022 - March 7, 2022 -- White potatoes — especially French fries — are often described in nutrition research literature and dietary guidance statements as having associations with obesogenic diets and as increasing chronic disease risk based on observational research findings. However, there is limited evidence from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) testing cause-and-effect relationships. Now, an RC...

Current Opinion in Cardiology; Saric M, Kronzon I

Oct 14th, 2011 - To describe cholesterol embolization syndrome (CES) and its risk factors, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis and treatment. To date, no specific diagnostic test (other than biopsy) for CES has been developed. Effective treatments for CES are yet to be developed.

Jun 7th, 2015 - Dyslipidaemia remains a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease and additional lipid-modifying treatments are warranted to further decrease the cardiovascular disease burden. We assessed the safety, tolerability and efficacy of a novel cholesterol esterase transfer protein (CETP) inhibitor TA-8995 in patients with mild dyslipidaemia. In this randomised, double-blind, placebo-c...

Journal of the American Heart Association; Lee Y, Berryman CE et. al.

Dec 1st, 2017 - Consumption of almonds or dark chocolate and cocoa has favorable effects on markers of coronary heart disease; however, the combined effects have not been evaluated in a well-controlled feeding study. The aim of this study was to examine the individual and combined effects of consumption of dark chocolate and cocoa and almonds on markers of coronary heart disease risk. A randomize...
