Need More Energy? Break out the Nutcracker This Christmas

LONDON, December 2, 2010 - Online nutrition profiling firm has identified that
fresh, raw nuts and seeds have a significant association with high energy
levels in adults. This is good news during the festive season since fresh
nuts are easy to obtain. looked at data from over 50,000 adults who had
completed a detailed online nutrition questionnaire. Nearly 75% of people
reported problems with energy including; low energy levels, reduction in
energy, waking up tired and craving stimulants or sugary foods. These issues
were significantly less prevalent in people who ate raw nuts and seeds daily.
The team found that people who regularly ate raw nuts or
seeds were three times more likely to be in optimum health. The data analysis
showed that:

    - Nut eaters are twice as likely to have more energy than non nut eaters

    - People who eat raw nuts frequently report needing less sleep and are
      nearly three times more likely to wake alert and refreshed than people
      who don't eat nuts

    - Nut eaters are half as likely to crave sugary foods or stimulants
      during the day advice is to eat two or three handfuls of fresh, raw
nuts each day to help avoid cravings, improve energy and feel more refreshed
in the morning. So head for the nut bowl before you reach for the coffee and
chocolates this Christmas (but not if you have an allergy or intolerance!).
