Cashew consumption has been linked to lower blood pressure levels. This is reported in a study by American scientists, the results of which were published in the journal Current Developments in Nutrition.

Eating cashews can not only improve blood pressure readings, but also lower blood triglyceride levels, according to a study.

The review found that the product improves heart health. The risk of coronary heart disease was 37% lower for those who consumed cashews more than 4 times a week. This nut, according to scientists, helps control "bad" cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

The study also showed that replacing 10% of the daily total calories with raw cashews lowered blood insulin levels in patients with type 2 diabetes.
