Nuts Prevent Heart Disease

An exciting study from BMC Medicine found that people who ate about a handful of any type of nuts a day had nearly 30 percent lower disease rates than people who didn’t eat nuts, Time reports. They also had a 15 percent lower risk of cancer and a 22 percent lower risk of dying from any cause, Time said.

The health benefits of nuts are undeniable. Raw organic nuts are a great source of healthy fat, vitamins, antioxidants and fiber. And, contrary to popular belief, eating healthy fat will actually help you lose weight. Far more often than not, if you're struggling with excess weight, it's because you're eating too much sugar and non-vegetable fiber carbs.

One reason nuts are so beneficial is that many — including walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, Brazil nuts and almonds — contain the amino acid l-arginine, which offers multiple vascular benefits to people with heart disease, or those who have increased risk for heart disease due to multiple cardiac risk factors.

My favorite nuts are macadamia and pecans, as they provide the highest amount of healthy fat while being on the lower end in terms of carbs and protein. Raw macadamia nuts contain high amounts of vitamin B1, magnesium and manganese. Just one serving of macadamia nuts net 58 percent of what you need in manganese and 23 percent of the recommended daily value of thiamin.

Moreover, about 60 percent of the fatty acid in macadamia is the monounsaturated fat oleic acid. Pecans also boast more than 19 different vitamins and minerals.
