Consuming most kinds of nuts may result in a decrease in risk of cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease. According to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, there is a lowered risk of developing such diseases in people who consume fresh nuts regularly, as compared to people who do not eat or rarely eat nuts. These nuts include peanuts, walnuts, tree nuts, and even peanut butter. Dr. Marta Guasch-Ferre from the Department of Nutrition at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health led and authored the research.

30g nuts
Nuts have a wide variety of nutrients such as protein, calcium, vitamin E, fiber, selenium, iron, vitamin C, potassium, folate, antioxidant resveratrol, omega-3 fatty acids, monosaturated fats, thiamin, and others. Naturally low in sodium, these nuts also have natural sugars which can substitute for carbohydrates, hence the fullness after consumption. A plain, uncooked, and unprocessed nut may as well be a natural health capsule.
