The participants were split into three groups with different diets, one which included the consumption of walnuts.

It concludes: “A metabolite profile including 19 metabolites was associated with walnut consumption and with a lower risk of incident type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease in a Mediterranean population at high cardiovascular risk.”

The research adds: “Using an agnostic machine-learning approach, we identified 19 plasma metabolites, including lipids, purines, acylcarnitines, and amino acids, that were associated with walnut consumption using data from the PREDIMED study.
