Are you looking for a nutritious, quick snack? Well I have great tasty news for you. Nuts (raw, organic and in moderation) are a near perfect option for your snaking plans. With healthy fats, fiber, plant sterols and many vitamins and minerals, nuts pack a powerful nutritional punch, all wrapped up in a tiny bite-sized package. In fact, a recent epidemiologic study revealed that nuts offer many benefits for your health, even reducing your risk of serious chronic disease. What more could you ask from a tasty snack?
A recent study involving more than 13,000 people, published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, set out to do just that.
Those who ate nuts gained numerous benefits compared to non-nut eaters, including:
Decreased body mass index and waist circumference
Lower systolic blood pressure
Less likelihood of having two risk factors for metabolic syndrome: high blood pressure and lower HDL (good) cholesterol (for nut consumers)
Less likelihood of having four risk factors for metabolic syndrome: abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, high fasting glucose and a lower prevalence of metabolic syndrome (for tree nut consumers)
The researchers concluded that nut consumption was associated with a decreased prevalence of selected risk factors for cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
Other research has further proven that nuts, such as almonds, confer superior heart health benefits to complex carbs like whole-wheat muffins; a study in the journal Circulation found people with abnormally high level of lipids, such as cholesterol, in their blood, were able to significantly reduce their risk factors for coronary heart disease by snacking on whole almonds. Those who snacked on whole-wheat muffins received no such benefit.
