The Many Health Benefits of Eating Nuts
by Brent Hale
basis can drastically reduce the chances of developing cancer or diseases. In 1992,
the Adventist Health Study conducted at Loma Linda University concluded that people
who ate nuts regularly were much less likely to have a heart attack in their lifetime.
Part of this reason is because of the healthy omega-3 fatty acids found in nuts. The
consumption of healthy fats is shown to help lower LDL cholesterol and lower
cholesterol is, of course, related to better heart health.

Nuts are also a great food to add to anyone's diet who is looking for weight loss
help. This is also because nuts are high in healthy fats and also because of their high
fiber content. Both fiber and the healthy fats found in nuts help you feel fuller longer.
This allows you to cut calories and, therefore, drop weight. Studies have proven that
people who eat nuts regularly are, in fact, thinner than those who don't. So, if you
are looking to improve your personal health and lose some weight, it would be a
good idea to add nuts to your diet.

Nuts have plenty of other good nutrition factors to consider as well. They are high in
phytonutrients and antioxidants, such as vitamin E and selenium. These antioxidants
help eliminate the free radicals that take place in the aging process and, therefore,
help you age at a slower pace.

It is recommended that eating 1-2 oz. of nuts a day will give you the maximum
amount of health benefits. Nuts are great when eaten as a snack and can be
assorted into bags to take on the go. Try to avoid nuts that are highly salted and do
not go overboard on eating nuts, because eating too much can have reverse effects
on your health goals.

There are many reasons why you should start eating nuts on a regular basis. They
are tasty, nutritious and require no preparation. It is crazy that more people these
days don't eat nuts regularly. For those who don't, they are surely missing out on an
excellent opportunity to become healthier individuals.

What Are the Different Omega 3 Nuts?
Caution: Although nuts provide many health benefits and contain omega 3 fatty acids, they contain
