A daily serving of nuts may prevent weight gain and improve metabolic health in the long run, two new studies suggest. From providing cardiovascular benefits to potentially improving fertility, and even boosting memory and intelligence, the health benefits of nuts are numerous — and no wonder. Nuts are packed with unsaturated fatty acids, fiber, protein, and other beneficial chemicals, which may all contribute to good health. However, can nuts aid weight loss? Are certain types of nuts better able to support good metabolism? Two new studies delved deeper into these questions. The authors will present the findings at Scientific Sessions 2018, a conference to be held by the American Heart Association (AHA) in Chicago, IL.
