Research shows that all nuts are a very healthy choice, and says many new clinical studies highlight heart-related benefits of nuts. Dr. Jared Bunch highlights some nuts and their link to heart health:


Can You Eat too Many Nuts?


The answer is yes, absolutely. The best approach to eating nuts is moderation.


Nuts are very good sources of energy, and if you eat too much you can gain weight and offset the heart benefits. I like to recommend adding nuts to an already heart-healthy diet or as an alternative healthy snack. If you change your snacks alone to unsalted nuts you will be surprised how effective that choice is in helping with weight loss and cholesterol management.


One thing to keep in mind is that some people can experience dangerous allergic reactions to nuts. If you have a potential allergy or a family history of nut allergies, don’t consider using nuts until you talk with your doctor.
