Nuts and health

Three new studies have looked at nuts (almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamias, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios and walnuts) in terms of health. 

In all of them, nut consumption was associated with a better nutrient profile and diet quality, lower body weight and less likelihood of metabolic syndrome (pre-diabetes).

In addition, a decrease in several cardiovascular risk factors compared to those seen among people who don’t eat nuts.

These three new independent studies support the growing body of evidence showing that eating nuts can improve your health, so grab a handful every day!

Eating pistachios may reduce cancer risk

LATEST research from the University of Texas and Texas Women’ University suggests pistachio nuts could reduce the risk of cancer. Pistachios contain high levels of vitamin E in the form of gamma tocopherol which studies have shown is linked to a lower cancer risk.

Thirty six people were involved in the study. Half ate their normal diet while the others ate their normal diet but added two ounces of pistachios a day. Four weeks later, those who ate pistachios had higher levels of gamma tocopheral than the other group.

Other foods rich in vitamin E, which is also excellent for the skin, include avocados, walnuts, soybeans and peanuts. Pistachios also have high antioxidant levels so can also help lower cholesterol, help with cardiovascular disease and stave of dementia.
