Nuts simply are a dry fruit which has one or two seeds that become hard once mature. So nuts basically are a type of seed. Like any other plant food, nuts contain many different kinds of nutrients that contain a tremendous amount of healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats which is around 49-74% total fat. They also contain average amounts of protein. Nuts are an amazing source of dietary fiber and they provide a tremendous amount of essential nutrients which include B group Vitamins, Calcium, zinc, Vitamin E, potassium, antioxidant, and magnesium.

Nuts can be grouped in the same group as meat, poultry, fish, eggs as they have great protein content. A serving of 30g of nuts daily is highly recommended but if you add an extra 10g of nuts then it becomes worse as it replaces other foods due to its high fat.

Every nut has its own combination of unique nutrients. The following nuts contain the following nutrients:

  • Walnuts: Alpha-linoleic acid: Antioxidants and Plant-Omega 3
  • Pine Nuts: Arginine Amino acid and vitamin E
  • Pecans: Antioxidants and Fibre
  • Pistachios: Potassium, Protein, Antioxidant resveratrol, and plant sterols.
  • Cashew Nuts: Low GI, Vitamin C, Fibre. However, if cooked a lot then vitamin c reduces drastically.
  • Almonds: Protein, Vitamin E, Calcium

Nuts naturally are low in sodium and they contain some carbohydrate in the form of natural sugars and also contain potassium. Chestnuts although are different as they have low glycemic index carbohydrates and low in fat.

The difference between raw and roasted nuts is the nutrient content. Nuts can be dry roasted or oil but because nuts are so dense they will be unable to absorb much oil. When you roast it does reduce the water content of nuts which reduces the b group vitamins since b group vitamins are not heat friendly.

30g of nuts a day can reduce the risk of developing heart diseases. However, this is on the basis of the high proportion of healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats in nuts, and low portion of saturated fats. There is a number of heart-healthy nutrients that can work together to achieve a great heart-protective effect. They include Low Sodium and high potassium levels that assist in maintaining a blood pressure that is healthy. Minerals and Antioxidant Vitamins like Vitamin E, Manganese, Copper, zinc, selenium and other antioxidant compounds. Argine which keeps blood vessels elastic and reduces the risk of atherosclerosis. Plant and Fibre sterols that do reduce cholesterol and re-absorption from the gut. Eating 67g of nuts helps improve cholesterol.

Nuts also help in preventing the development of type 2 diabetes. A large study was conducted which found that woman who was eating 30g of nuts per day in 6 days per week had 30% less chance of getting diabetes. The effect was attributed due to the high levels of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats that nuts contained. Nuts can really benefit the people who have type 2 diabetes as they really help in the reduction of the overall glycemic index of your diet. Nuts help reduce the risk of the Metabolic syndrome which is a cluster of metabolic measures that when left untreated most definitely can lead to type 2 diabetes.

If you are doing a diet then 30-50g of nuts on a daily basis does not lead to weight gain and may intact help in reducing the risk of obesity since healthy fats leave you feeling much fuller and can help you control your appetite.

If you are allergic to nuts then you should avoid Almonds, Cashews, Brazil Nuts, Pecans, Peanuts.
