that helps maintain a man’s bone density, muscle strength and sex drive.

 

Macadamia Nuts

These delicious__and high in fat. But more than 82% of the fat in

macadamia is monounsaturated. Olive oil, another “good”  fat

that has been linked to cardiovascular health, is between 55% and

83% monounsaturated. They are also a good source of fabric, with 2.3 g per

per one ounce serving.

A Journal of Nutritionist Study found that people who got most of their

fiber from macadamia nuts had a greater reduction in LDL and total cholesterol

of than those who ate a similar diet without the nuts.

 

PEANUTS

Peanuts are rich in resveratrol, a potent antioxidant

that reduces inflammation. “The large, multi-decade

Harvard Nurses’ Health Study Found that people who regularly

ate peanuts butter, peanuts or other nuts were less likely to develop

diabetes.”

Peanuts technically are a legume, but they act like nuts. They

reduce the risk of dying from cancer, heart disease and other

conditions.

 

Pecans

It maybe the carrots that have a reputation for improving eye health,

but you also might want to take a 20/20 look at pecans.

Catarats, muscular degeneration and other serious eye diseases are caused

in part by free radicals. The antioxidants in nuts and other plant foods

help prevent free radicals from damaging eye tissues. One study found

that antioxidants__including the vitamin E in pecans and other nuts

helped show the progression of macular degeneration by about 25%.

 

Pistachio Nuts

This is another nut that men should love. In one study, men with erectile

dysfunction were given 100 g (a little more than three ounces) of pistachios

daily for three weeks. (they showed in llEF scores) (a measure of the ability

to get erections) and improvements in blood flow. They also had an increase

in HDL, which prevent cholesterol from clogging arteries in the penis.

Pistachios are particularly high in arginine, an amino add used by the body

to produce nitric oxide, a gas that causes blood vessels to dilate. It is important

not just for sexual health but for overall cardiovascular health as well.

 

Cashews

Despite their vaevety texture, cashews are one of the lowest fat

nuts at 13 g of fat per ounce___with the majority of fats, including

phytosterols, being good for the heart. Cashews also are good for your

weight. When you eat a handful of cashews, the body releases cholecystokinin,

a hormones that increases feelings of fullness. As long as you eat the nut

slowly enough to allow the hormone to kick in, you will find that  you say

“enough” before you’ve overdone it.

 

 

 

Walnuts

Walnuts are rich in apha-linolenic acid (ALA), a plant-based form of the

omega-3 fatty acids that are found in fish. A one-ounce serving of walnuts has 2.5 g

of ALA, compared with about 0.5 g in pecans and none in other nuts. The fatty acids in

walnuts may show the progression of arterial plaques that produce clots, the cause of most

heart attack.

 

Health Tips

A recent study found that eating walnuts with meals decreased the inflammation

that occurs immediately after eating a steak or other foods high in saturate fat.

Inflammation is linked to cardiovascular disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and other disease.

 

When USDA researchers measured the antioxidant capacity of more than 100 foods

they found that pecans were at the  top of the nut pack.
