what about nuts?

Humans have eaten nuts for thousands of years, but only recently have they discovered how much this dried fruit is good for health.

Walnuts help keep the mind and body in the best shape possible and can bring benefits you probably do not even imagine.

1. Improve heart function – Nuts are packed with omega-3s, as well as monounsaturated fatty acids, such as oleic acid. They also contain an abundance of essential fatty acids (EFAs), such as alpha-linolenic acid, linoleic acid and arachidonic acids. These nutrients help prevent heart disease, reduce blood pressure and bad cholesterol, as well as increase the amount of good cholesterol in the bloodstream.

2. Accelerate metabolism – Nuts contain various minerals such as copper, manganese, potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, selenium and zinc. All these minerals help to improve metabolism and are excellent for many metabolic activities such as digestion, sperm formation, and nucleic acid growth and synthesis.

3. Nuts keep diabetes under control – Nut consumption helps lower the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, or for those who already have the disease, helps control it. This is because the food contains a large amount of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.

4. Eating nuts helps prevent various types of cancer – Surprisingly, a number of components present in this dried fruit have the ability to restrict the growth of cancer cells in the body. A 2010 study attributed this function to some phenolic compounds and antioxidants found in nuts.

5. Improve bone health – If you want to have strong bones, then you better start eating nuts, as this food helps your body absorb calcium by preventing it from being expelled too much through the urine. That way it will keep the bones strong and strong longer, which unfortunately tend to weaken with the advancing age.
