Go Nuts for Nuts

Why you should eat nuts every day for good health

Nuts are one of nature's super foods. If you don't regularly eat nuts, you should. Not only are they full of wonderful nutrients, protein, and heart-healthy fats, but they're inexpensive and easy to eat on the go. Walnuts, almonds, pecans, pistachios, cashews, or peanuts (often considered a nut, though technically a legume)...find a nut you like and keep a stash at your desk, in your car, and in your kitchen cupboards to snack on when you need a boost of energy or to take the edge off your hunger until the next meal.

Nuts pack a powerful punch in such a small package. If you doubt their health benefits, read on to see just how wrong you are.

Heart Nut

Lower your bad cholesterol, reduce your risk of heart disease, prevent blood clots, and keep your arteries healthy by eating more nuts. Nuts are full of unsaturated “good” fats (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated) that lower cholesterol. In fact, it's hard to find a better source of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids than nuts. Omega-3s are known to help regulate your heart rhythm, slow the buildup of plaque in arteries, and reduce triglyceride levels. The high amounts of fiber in nuts also help lower cholesterol, and nuts are also rich in vitamin E, plant sterols, and L-arginine—all of which work to promote the health of your circulatory system.

When it comes to heart health, walnuts seem to be your best bet. Almonds, macadamias, hazelnuts, and pecans, however, aren't far behind.

Weight Nut

It may sound strange to say that nuts are both high in fat and help you lose weight, but it's true. The fiber, protein, and fats found in nuts fill you up, suppress your appetite, and provide lasting energy so you don't crave other foods and end up overindulging in unhealthy options.

Studies show that people who include a small amount of nuts as part of their regular diet are less likely to have metabolic syndrome (conditions that increase the risk for heart disease and diabetes), have a lower body mass index, and have lower blood pressure.

It's important to keep in mind that nuts are 80 percent fat. It's healthy fat, but they're also high in calories. One ounce of nuts contains anywhere from 160 calories per ounce (dry almonds) to 204 calories per ounce (dry roasted macadamia nuts). This is why eating nuts in moderation is important. Eat more than an ounce or two and the calories start to add up quickly. Also, it's easy to cancel out the health benefits offered by nuts if you eat the kind coated in sugar sweetness, too much salt, chocolate, or are roasted in oil.

Brain Nut

Protect your mind from cognitive decline, improve your memory, and even reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease by eating nuts. Babies' brain development in utero will also benefit from their moms eating nuts. Walnuts are especially high in DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid shown to benefit the brain. Hazelnuts and almonds are great sources of vitamin E, a nutrient that improves brain function as you age. High in vitamin E, folate, and niacin, peanuts provide a triple whammy for brain health and possible protection against brain-related diseases.
