Go Nuts!: Your Skin Will Thank You!
by Liz Janowski, VP
Last month, the New York Times reported on a series of studies proving the power of nuts. The more nuts people ate, the lower their rates of heart disease and stroke. And while nuts are relatively high in fat, studies have also shown that adults who eat nuts weigh less than people who don’t. And, perhaps more importantly, those who included a moderate amount of nuts as part of their weight loss program lost more weight than those who did not. This is possibly because nuts were more filling than other snacks dieters ate, thus reducing cravings.
Probably the best nut for your skin is almonds. Almonds contain a powerhouse of nutrients including; antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, vitamin E, magnesium and calcium. So, next time you get the munchies, instead of reaching for a bag of chips, grab a few almonds. Your heart and your skin will thank you.
