Eating Nuts Might Lower Inflammation

Inflammation can play a role in the development of cardiovascular and metabolic health issues. The association isn’t very well understood, but a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests eating nuts might help lower inflammation.
Researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital looked at the diets of 5,000 adult subjects. They found that people who consumed 5 or more servings of peanuts or tree nuts per week typically had lower levels of inflammation biomarkers CRP and IL6 compared to subjects who never ate nuts.
Although scientists don’t know what it is about nuts that might help lower inflammation, many tree nuts contain magnesium, fiber, L-arginine, antioxidants and unsaturated fatty acids like alpha linolenic acid.
