A new study published by the journal Clinical Nutrition suggests that eating nuts could have some surprising mental health benefits.
Specifically, eating about 30 grams of nuts every day can help lower the risk of depression in adults.
“Our findings highlight yet another benefit of consuming nuts, with a 17% decrease in depression associated with nut consumption,” lead author Bruno Bizzozero-Peroni, from the University of Castilla-La Mancha in Spain, said. “This provides an even stronger rationale for people to become enthusiastic about consuming nuts.”
Participants included more than 13,500 people in the UK between the ages of 37 and 73 who did not have a depression diagnosis at the start of the study.
