Health Benefits of the Consumption of Nuts
Despite being high in fat, nuts are incredibly nutritious and healthy.
They’re loaded with magnesium, vitamin E, fiber, and various other nutrients (1).
Studies demonstrate that nuts can help you lose weight and may help fight type 2 diabetes and heart disease (2, 3, 4).
Additionally, your body doesn’t absorb 10–15% of the calories in nuts. Some evidence also suggests that this food can boost metabolism (5).
In one study, almonds were shown to increase weight loss by 62%, compared with complex carbs (6).
