Nuts' Health Benefits - A Healthier Heart and Weight Loss
by B. James
If you have been diagnosed with heart disease or are looking to avoid this condition
or other problems related to high cholesterol then substituting unhealthy foods with
nuts will be a good alternative for you. There have been many studies that have
suggested that eating nuts can benefit your overall health.

Many nuts contain omega-3 fatty acids. The plant based source of this fatty acid
found in nuts is possibly the best that you can find. This fatty acid may play a big part
in the reason that eating nuts has been shown to increase heart health.

Nuts contain Vitamin E as well as minerals that may help to reduce blood clots that
could lead to heart attack or stroke. By helping to lower blood pressure and
improving the elasticity and health of arteries you are also protected from heart
disease.

The fiber found in nuts helps to control hunger in between meals and can also help in
the health of your gastrointestinal system. Many studies have shown that increasing
fiber in your diet can 'facilitate weight loss'. The fiber contained in nuts also increases
the burning of calories needed to digest them.

Nuts make a great snack for persons that are on the go and need an energy boost
during the day. By making your own snacks of different types of nuts you can save
money by staying away from snack machines and eat healthier as well. There are
many kinds of nuts to experiment with, some you will like more than others. Each
nut has it's own benefits so try them all and start eating a healthier diet.
