Nuts are natural anti-inflammatories

Nuts are natural anti-inflammatories image

Eating nuts is good for us, as we all know—and now researchers have discovered just why. Nuts seem to reduce levels of inflammation, a problem that has been associated with a range of chronic health problems, from heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and some cancers.

People who eat nuts five or more times a week have lower markers of inflammation compared to people who never eat nuts—and inflammation levels dropped dramatically among people who substitute three servings a week of red meat, processed meat, eggs or refined grains for nuts.

Nuts of all types contain magnesium, fibre, L-arginine, antioxidants and unsaturated fatty acids, although researchers aren’t clear which ones act as anti-inflammatories, or if they work together synergistically.

The discoveries were made by a team of researchers from the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, who assessed the health and diets of more than 120,000 female nurses and 50,000 male health professionals.
