Dietitian Sian Porter says: “The essential omega-3 fatty acid ALA in California Walnuts helps maintain normal blood cholesterol levels*. Walnuts are a rich source of magnesium which helps normal muscle function including heart muscle. A type of fibre found in oats; Oat beta-glucan, has been shown to help maintain normal blood cholesterol levels*. Oats are a good source of Thiamin (vitamin B1) which contributes to the normal function of the heart. Bananas are a rich source of potassium which contributes to normal blood pressure.”
