Nuts and Seeds


Ok, maybe this belongs in Diet but maybe if you learned to think of Nuts and Seeds as a necessary supplement -- you might just feel better and look better. In the battle to offset the bad fats a handful of nuts and seeds can go a long way.

By now, it's pretty well known that nuts and seeds contain the good kind of fat, the kind that can lower blood cholesterol levels. That benefit comes from phytosterols, natural chemicals found in this food group.

Now, a study published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry lets us know which nuts and seeds pack the healthiest phytosterol punch...with pistachios and sunflower seeds coming out on top. Other high scorers included pumpkin seeds (a.k.a. pepitas), almonds, and macadamia nuts.
