Walnuts for Stress Reduction Diets

It`s well known that the nutrients in some types of nuts can help protect your body against the damaging physical effects of being stressed out. Some studies reveal that nuts rich in alpha-linolenic acid, like walnuts, had a heart-protective benefit during times of acute stress - which is known to cause cardiovascular strain.

(Also various sources indicate that almonds, because of their vitamin E, vitamin B and magnesium content can bolster your immune system when you're stressed)

A review of other studies about eating nuts found that people who added nuts to their diets and who replaced other foods with nuts lost more weight and reduced their waist sizes by more than half an inch.
