Nuts: Nutrition with a Crunch

Nut consumers have a decreased risk for heart disease and precursor symptoms researchers reported in a study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition. Researchers analyzed data from 13,292 people, discovering that people who ate nuts were less likely to display risk factors for cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome. They also tended to weigh less and have lower BMI and blood pressure.

Some compounds in nuts, such as polyphenols and plant sterols, are anti-inflammatories. They also contain fiber, as well as copper and magnesium, which are associated with decreased chronic disease, cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes.

Nutritionists recommend eating just one ounce of nuts per day to receive benefits. Including nuts on salads, entrees or fruit is a good way to incorporate them into a healthy diet. They can be eaten with a meal or as a snack.
