There is a powerful wonder food that can actually help you live longer new research says. This food has been known to have many health related benefits, and now we can add longevity to the mix. This food has been used by just about every culture as a great source of nutrition and has been heavily researched. The challenge is that many people have developed allergies to the food and therefore steer clear of eating it on a regular basis. This wonder food is found in most everyone’s kitchen at some point. So let’s jump in and discuss the amazing healing benefits of nuts. Yes this simple snack that we all tend to love has been proven to add years to our life and life to our years. A recent study showed us that just a 1 ounce serving of nuts each day like walnuts, cashews, almonds, hazelnuts, etc can give us a 20 percent reduced risk of death. Sign me up for that! So think about it. To your normal routine, just consider adding a handful of nuts to the mix. They also found in this study that it wasn’t just certain health challenges, but it was a reduced risk from all causes of death. Listen, that’s amazing. Our food choices directly impact our health in so many ways. And this is just one of them. The National Institute of Health was part of this study and it was published in the New England Journal of Medicine. When asked, we have known that nuts are loaded with a power punch. They are full of healthy fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. They are also huge proponents at helping fight against high cholesterol and heart disease for empowering your health.
Researchers looked in the study and found that if you eat 1 serving of nuts per week, your risk of dying decreases by 11 percent. If you eat 2-4 servings per week it will go to 13 percent. And if you eat a serving 7 days per week you will have the full 20 percent reduced chance of dying. Simply amazing.
The question always is just how much is a serving. I always say don’t overthink it. Usually it’s about 20 pieces. So 20 almonds or 20 walnuts.
A handful of nuts a day may just be better than the apple to keep the doctor away.
