Food Facts


Mixed nuts help diabetics. According to the October ’11 Reader’s Digest, a study found that people with diabetes who ate two ounces of mixed nuts every day instead of carb-heavy snacks significantly improved their blood sugar levels, and their bad cholesterol went down as well.

Ginger can help soothe your stomach and eliminate gas. It can even help with motion sicknesss and other cases of nausea, like morning sickness, according to the June ’11 Better Health. Supplements are available, but try it in tea.

Eggs don’t raise bad cholesterol, as was once thought, and they are protein packed. According to a new study reported in the October ’11 Prevention, two cooked egg yolks have the same antioxidant power as an apple.

Oats can pump you up. According to the May/June ’11 Well Being Journal, avenanthramide-c, found in oats, is associated with increased nitric oxide production. That could be one reason oats are so heart healthy—arterial relaxation.

Walnuts slow the growth of prostate tumors in mice, according to a study performed at University of California, Davis, and the United States Department of Agriculture Western Regional Research Center in Albany, California. That may or may not translate to humans, but we already know that walnuts are one of the best heart-healthy nuts, so eat up.
