Pine nuts contain a variety of nutrients that promote heart health and may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. In particular, they contain antioxidants that help prevent the development of various disorders of the heart and blood vessels. Eating at least three servings of cedar or other tree nuts every week helps reduce the risk of heart failure and atrial fibrillation.
Eating at least 30 grams of nuts will help in the treatment of CCC diseases. Unsaturated fats in pine nuts help to increase the level of HDL or good cholesterol and reduce the level of LDL or "bad". Omega-3 fatty acids can prevent arrhythmias (a condition where the heart beats too fast or slow) and help reduce blood clotting.
