Hazelnuts Ice Cream.
FRIEND OF BLOOD VESSELS AND ENEMY OF CHOLESTEROL
Some scientific evidence has put forward the hypothesis of a beneficial effect of hazelnuts on human health:
• in cardiovascular diseases; a study by the Physicians’ health study (2002) subjected 21454 subjects for 12 months to regular intake of dried fruit (4 or more portions / week). The assumption is associated with a 30% reduction in the risk of death from vascular disease;
• in dyslipidaemias; in particular the antioxidant content and the fatty acid composition would have positive effects on the mobilization of cholesterol, decreasing the levels of LDL and total cholesterol and increasing the quantities of HDL (good cholesterol).
High content of tocopherols
In addition, the high content of tocopherols (vitamin E) and ß-sitosterol also has an effect on the control of some types of tumors (colon, prostate and breast).
