Nuts increase the chances of a healthy pregnancy According to a study presented at the Annual International Congress on Embryology (European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology), regular consumption of just a handful of nuts per day by men increases fertility, promotes conception and the birth of a healthy child.

The study, conducted by the Spanish Department of Dietary Nutrition of the University of Rovira and Virgil (Human Nutrition Unit of the Universitat Rovira i Virgil in Reus), involved 119 men aged 18 to 35 years without any health conditions. Volunteers were divided into 2 groups, in one of which participants daily consumed 60 g of ground hazelnuts, walnuts, and almonds .

After the experiment, the results of the analyzes of young people in this group were significantly better, which suggests the benefits of a diet enriched with nuts for couples planning a pregnancy.

“Based solely on the results of this study, it is still too early to talk about global trends in the field of embryology. But there is already a wealth of information accumulating that lifestyle changes, such as following a healthy diet, can help you conceive. And, of course, nuts are one of the key foods of the Mediterranean diet,” said study leader Dr. Albert Salas-Huetos.

Nuts are the richest source of protein, vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids. Regular consumption of this product will have a positive effect on the replenishment of nutrients, the deficiency of which is especially acutely felt by a modern person in the conditions of aggressive environmental and ecological factors.
