Walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, Brazil nuts and cashews can help reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol, which can have a heart-protective effect. They are also rich in the amino acid arginine, which converts to nitric oxide, which helps relax blood vessels. Nuts can help with weight management because they help you feel full longer. The selenium in Brazil nuts may protect against advanced prostate cancer; men with high levels of selenium had a 60% lower risk. Nuts are rich in vitamin E, which may help prevent cognitive decline. Peanuts are high in folate, which improves neural health. The latest study on walnuts found they may help improve sperm quality in younger men.
