Nuts are full of antioxidants, healthy fats, proteins and key nutrients that boost our overall health and can even aid in the reduction of cholesterol. Check out some of the benefits from a variety of nuts below.

Here Are The Health Benefits of Popular Nuts

1. Walnuts



Walnuts are great for your heart, may help protect against cancer, are good for your brain and may even help reduce depression. They're high in Omega 3 fats, phytosterols, and antioxidants. Research finds that walnuts may even reduce the risk of age-related diseases, such as Alzheimer's.


2. Almonds




Almonds contain the highest amount of calcium of all nuts. They are full of vitamin E and magnesium and are also high in fiber. Almonds can help protect against diabetes by lowering cholesterol and reducing the risk of heart disease.

3. Peanuts


Peanuts

Peanuts are technically a legume, but we think it's worth adding to the list. Legumes have the highest amount of folates compared to other nuts, which are essential for brain development. Peanuts are high in vitamin E and provide health benefits such as boosting memory, helping to fight depression, and reducing the risk of heart disease.

4. Hazelnuts




Hazelnuts are high in magnesium, vitamins B and E, and calcium. They are rich in unsaturated fats, which are mostly oleic acid. Hazelnuts are good for you heart, muscles, skin, bones, joint and digestive health. They also may help reduce the risk of cancer.


5. Pecans




Yes, pecans are higher in calories and fat than other nuts, but they still provide many health benefits - especially for men. They contain beta-sitisterol which helps in the relief on an enlarged prostate. Pecans may also help reduce the risk of gallstones and manage blood sugar levels in diabetics.


6. Cashews




Cashews are rich in iron, full of magnesium (even more than almonds) and the unsaturated fat is predominantly oleic acid (the same as olive oil). Cashews may help to prevent cancer, are great for your skin and hair, and promote a healthy heart and strong bones.

Before coming to Schneider clinic I had a multiple issues with my sinuses and allergies. I am a supervisor at a sewing factory but my real passion is singing. I love to sing but with all the congestion I couldn’t do what I love to do! I went to my family doctor and was prescribed many different medications including multiple kinds of nasal sprays. Not only did this not help my sinus problems, but a lot of the time it made the congestion worse. The congestion and drainage got so bad that I was having a hard time even breathing.

One day during my lessons, my voice teacher suggested that I see a chiropractor for my sinus problems. I thought she had lost it, I had no idea they could help with sinus problems. I always thought they could only work on backs and necks. My mom, who was already seeing Dr. Schneider for her back told him about my problem. He assured her that he could help so I made an appointment with him the very next day. Dr. Schneider told me about his unique Endonasal Balloon Therapy. I was a little hesitant about the treatment at first but now I am so glad that I stayed.

Since starting Endonasal treatments I feel so much better and I can breathe again. I don’t have the drainage that I used to and my throat is not dry from trying to breathe through my mouth all the time. The best part is, I CAN SING AGAIN IN PERFECT PITCH! My voice teacher has noticed a huge difference and according to her the quality and tone in my voice is much improved. What a joy it has been! I know without these treatments I would still be struggling along.

Thank you Dr. Schneider and staff for all your kindness and help. I am so happy about how I feel I might have to write a song about it!
