nuts are top of the tree when it comes to super heart-healthy foods research has shown. The Christmas favorite is filled with more powerful and abundant antioxidant s than any other nut popular and healthy fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals.
A meta-analysis walnut s by Harvard scientists found diets rich in walnuts can significantly reduce cholesterol levels, increasingly supporting evidence to suggest these popular nuts can improve lipid ratios healthy blood. Dry land and in general, fruits are said to be among the most perfect nature prepared dishes.
In addition to having all the nutrients necessary for a healthy diet which also contain high levels of protective antioxidants that counteract the effects of harmful molecules.
diets containing two percent, six percent, or nine percent of the nuts, when administered to aged rats, was found to reverse multiple parameters of brain aging and age related motor and cognitive deficits, says James Joseph, PhD, Department of Agriculture human Nutrition Research Center at Tufts University in Boston.
research suggests that regular consumption of nuts can reduce the risk of heart disease certain types of cancer, and type-2 diabetes . . However, until now it was not known who had the most health claims
To answer this question, scientists analyzed antioxidant content of nine different types of nuts: walnuts, almonds , peanuts, pistachios, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, cashews, macadamias and pecans
study leader Dr. Joe Vinson of the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania, United States, said :. ‘Range nuts over peanuts, almonds, walnuts, pistachios and other nuts.
‘a handful of walnuts contains almost twice more antioxidants than an equivalent amount of any other commonly consumed nut. But unfortunately, people do not eat many of them.
“This study suggests that consumers should eat more walnuts as part of a healthy diet. “
Dr. Vinson’s team found that walnuts not only had more antioxidants than other nuts, but more powerful antioxidants. Those in walnuts were two to 15 times more potent vitamin E, known for its antioxidant properties. the findings were presented today at the 241st national meeting of the American Chemical Society in Anaheim, California.
Dr. Vinson said another advantage of nuts was that usually eat in their natural state, rather than being roasted. “the heat of roasting nuts generally reduces the quality of antioxidants,” he added. account nuts for only eight percent of antioxidant intake in the diet average person.
Dr. Vinson said many people nuts were placed, as it were thought to be fattening. But he said that nuts generally contain polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats instead of fat saturated that clog arteries.
nut consumption did not appear to cause weight gain and may even reduce overeating by making people feel full. About seven walnuts a day was the right amount to eat for maximum health benefit, said Dr. Vinson
