Dr. Klassen’s Corner – Nuts anyone?

Dr. Klassen’s Corner

In general, nuts are a healthy snack. Studies have shown that eating one-quarter cup of nuts five time a week can add years to your life.

Tree nuts and peanuts (though technically are a legume) are high in beneficial fats, antioxidants and other protective phytochemicals. Nuts such as pecans and walnuts have a form of vitamin E that is not found in most supplements. It may slow the growth of cancer cells according to a study done at Purdue University.

A nut rich diet can lower LDL (low density lipoprotein) cholester-

ol by about one third, the same amount achieved with some statin drugs. A study posted in Circulation Magazine September 10, 2002 stated that eating 25 almonds per day for one month cut bad cholesterol by five percent.

Peanuts and peanut products such as peanut butter also contain the phytosterol beta-sitosterol (SIT), which has been shown to inhibit cancer growth and protect against heart disease. Women who eat five tablespoons of peanut butter each week can reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 20%. Boost your healthy fat intake by eating nuts, avoca-dos, nut butters and supplementing with CHF #43 Omega-3 and CHF #43TG Mega Ome-ga.
