5 Health Benefits of Eating Nuts

 

Whether you love them or hate them, there’s no denying that nuts are great for your body. They come with plenty of health benefits, and they are super easy for keeping in the cupboard for a quick snack, so here are some of the main things you can expect when you add nuts to your diet.

1. They help you to lose weight
When you look at the calories in nuts, you might be surprised, shocked and even put off the idea. However, not only do they have plenty of protein that will help you feel fuller for longer, the fats they contain are actually good fats that won’t do your body any harm when consumed in moderation. Rather than being tempted to snack on foods which are higher in calories, you’ll fill up quicker on nuts and won’t overeat as easily.

2. Nuts help to lower cholesterol
Struggling with high cholesterol can leave you feeling not quite right, and it can be dangerous for your body too. While it might seem like a common issue, you should try to lower your cholesterol if it is too high. Nuts are one of the foods that you can eat in order to achieve a healthier cholesterol level.

3. They are a great source of calcium
With the constant debate of whether we should be eating dairy or not, and the increase of people going vegan (either for health reasons or fashion!), almonds serve as a brilliant replacement in order to get the calcium that our bodies need. From helping our teeth and nails to improve the condition of hair and skin, we all need calcium and nuts can provide it.

4. They can reduce inflammation
Inflammation in the body can cause a huge amount of health problems. From stomach aches to joint ache and other issues like arthritis, reducing inflammation is important if you want to feel healthy and strong. You can include nuts in your diet by adding them to salads, stir fries or even just snacking on them during the day.

5. Nuts are a good source of fiber
It’s not just calcium that you’ll get from nuts – you’ll also get a good dose of fiber. Many of us struggle to get enough fiber in our diets, and this can lead to easy weight gain, stomach and bowel problems and overall fatigue. Almonds are particularly good at providing fiber, but hazelnuts, Brazil nuts and walnuts will help you too.
