Although research & studies to date show that eating nuts can benefit a healthy heart and reduces the risk of dying early from any heart disease. Unless you are allergic to the nuts, there is no real danger of consuming nuts daily. They are widely eaten as a snack or used in cooking.

I know some of you are wondering about weight gain because of the fact that nuts are a good source of fats. One analysis of around 30 studies show that nuts have little or no effect on our weight gain. Yet, despite making you fat, some studies also shows that eating nuts help you to live longer as compared to those who don’t.

Some studies also showed that nuts may help humans to lower the certain risk of cancer.

Latest Study that shows Nuts improve Sexual Functions

The latest study started with a group of 80 men living a normal lifestyle. They all ages between 18-35, and for almost 100 days following ‘Western Style Diet’.

Half of the group ate a western-style diet but without adding nuts. While the other group is the same diet in addition to 60 grams of nuts every single day (Include Walnuts, Almonds and Hazelnuts). Their daily dose is equivalent of two handfuls of nuts.

The investigators and nutritionist claimed that this is the first study to prove that adding nuts in your daily diet can benefit your sexual functions. All the participants answered the questionnaire at the start and end of the study to know the results of their sexual functions.

How Nuts can help you with Sexual Functions?

Almost after 100 days, the outcome of that study showed that compared to the no-nuts diet, the nuts group reported an increase in orgasm functions and strong sexual desires. However, the blood test doesn’t reveal any significant change in both groups.

This study suggests that adding nuts to a westernstyle diet can improve the quality of your orgasm and sexual functions. The analysis of the study also proves that there is a significant positive change in erectile function.

Summing up, the results of the study shows that men eating nuts likely to be getting more healthy sexual performance. But remember these are just numbers, you should not believe them blindly. If you have any kind of disease or any health issue related to sexual life, I suggest you consult your doctor first and then add anything extra in your diet.

Other Benefits of Eating Nuts daily

1. Great source of Nutrients

We all know that nuts are high nutrients and full of vitamins. But always consider to add different type of nuts in your diet, and don’t stick to only one. Our body love to consume nutrients from a variety of foods. The more you feed your body with different foods, the more it will consume in a better way.

Some of the nutrients in a handful mixture of nuts:

  • Protein
  • Unsaturated Fats
  • Fiber
  • Vitamin E
  • Magnesium
  • Phosphorus
  • Copper
  • Selenium
  • Calcium
  • Omega 3

There is saying that nuts are the best food to eat when you are in a low carb diet.

As mentioned above that you should consume different type of nuts daily, because some nuts are more nutritious than others. For instance, Brazil Nuts have more selenium then required daily.

2. Full of Antioxidants

If you want to know the powerhouse of antioxidants then you must consider havin nuts in your daily diet.

Antioxidants protect your cells against the effect of free radicals. Free radical molecules are produced when your body breaks down food for proper digestion. Studies show that they may play a role in heart disease, cancer, and other harmful diseases.

However, there are some contradicting statements like some nutritionist believes that cashews & walnuts increase the number of antioxidants in our body, while other believe that they have no such impact.

3. Aid to Weight Loss

Despite being high in calorie, some major studies shows that they have a significant impact and helps a lot in weight loss.

One study of 15 people, half of those have given nuts as a source of fats, whereas others have given olive oil. This study found that people who consumed nuts as a source of fats lost an average of 2 inches of fat from their waist.  

One study claimed to prove that our body doesn’t consume all of the calories present in nuts; some portion of fat stays trapped inside the nuts during the digestion.
