Pecans have been associated with numerous health benefits.

Pecans are a great source of monounsaturated fatty acids, a type of fat that may benefit heart health.  One study in 204 people with coronary artery disease, which is characterized by the narrowing of arteries, found that eating 1 ounce (30 grams) of pecans daily for 12 weeks improved the ratio of total cholesterol to HDL (good) cholesterol in the blood.UFABET 

Similarly, an older study in 19 people with normal cholesterol levels found that. Those eating 2.5 ounces (68 grams) of pecans each day had significantly lower levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol after 8 weeks. Compared with those in a control group who didn’t eat any nuts.

Other research shows that an increased intake of tree nuts. Including pecans, may be linked to reduced levels of total cholesterol, LDL (bad) cholesterol, and triglycerides. All of which are risk factors for heart disease.

Stabilizes blood sugar

Some research suggests that pecans may promote better blood sugar control, which may be partially due to their fiber content.

Although nuts contain mainly insoluble fiber that doesn’t dissolve in water, they also contain some soluble fiber. Soluble fiber dissolves in water, forming a gel-like material that moves through your body undigested and slows the absorption of sugar into the blood.

One small study in 26 adults with overweight or obesity found that eating a pecan-rich diet for 4 weeks improved the body’s ability to use insulin effectively. Insulin is the hormone that transports sugar from your bloodstream into your cells.

What’s more, this diet improved the function of beta cells in the pancreas. Which are responsible for insulin production.

Similarly, a review of 12 studies showed that adding tree nuts to your diet could help lower levels of hemoglobin A1C, a measure of long-term blood sugar control
