5 Nutritional Factors Of Almonds & Walnuts

B.Sc.(Hons), P.G.Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
5 Nutritional Factors Of Almonds & Walnuts

Whenever you peruse through snack options in a store, looking for a fulfilling yet healthy option often turns out to be really challenging. This is where you might consider nuts, such as almonds or walnuts. They are healthy snacking options with rich reserves of protein, fibre, and energy.
However, even in the choice between almonds and walnuts, there are certain things which need to be kept in mind.

  • Energy content: Almonds contain 14 grams worth of fat, and 164 calories whereas walnuts contain approximately 18 grams of fat but give 185 calories. Thus, we find that walnuts contain a slightly higher amount of fat than almonds, but provide more energy in the form of calories.
  • Protein content: Almonds and walnuts are both protein powerhouses - containing 13% and 9% of protein content respectively. Thus, both these nuts are great sources of protein.
  • Mineral content: Both almonds and walnuts are rich in various kinds of minerals. When it comes to Iron, which is essential for muscle health and blood formation, both nuts contain very similar amounts (approx 5%). Almonds pack 19% magnesium - essential for strong bones, compared to the 11% in walnuts. Walnuts, however, have very high amounts of copper (50%) and manganese (54%) which prove to be useful in reducing symptoms of PMS as compared to almonds.
  • Fibre content: Fiber,which plays a vital role in completing the process of digestion, is another component that these nuts pack healthy amounts of. Almonds contain 16% fiber whereas walnuts have 8%.
  • Vitamin content: While walnuts contain 12% Vitamin B6, compared to the 3% in almonds, the real point of difference between these two highly healthy nuts is in their content of Vitamin E - essential for healthy skin and eyes. Almonds contain almost 48% of it, whereas walnuts contain only about 2% of the same.

Thus, we get a fair idea about the high nutritional content for both these nuts. They are both essential, especially if they can be incorporated into our diets in the correct proportions. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.

Super Fact of the Day: Your brain does not feel pain!

Super Fact of the Day: Your brain does not feel pain!
The brain is the pain center when you burn yourself or bleed, but is devoid of pain receptors itself. The brain itself cannot feel pain. Blood vessels, nerves and tissues surrounding it are receptive to pain. That is why your head hurts during a headache, but your brain cannot.

Would you like to share this interesting fact with family or friends? go ahead and share!

I am suffering from dysmennorhea since 4 yrs how can I get relief from these cramps during periods? l.

I am suffering from dysmennorhea since 4  yrs how can I get relief from these cramps during periods? l.
Hello. We can minimize the pain during menses with diet and medicines (which are safe to take).. Diet: - Calcium is a mineral associated with building healthy bones and teeth. However, it may have some applications in minimizing the harmful effects of menstrual cramping. So,increase your intake by eating low-fat dairy products such as milk, yogurt and cheese or green leafy vegetables. - Your body uses vitamin B-6 to manufacture new red blood cells. When you lose red blood cells via menorrhagia, your body will need more to build new cells. Also, vitamin B-6 is required for your blood sugar to stay at healthy levels. This can help prevent menstrual cramping-related mood swings and fatigue. Vitamin B-6 is found in fortified cereals, bananas, spinach, sunflower seeds, avocados, tomato juice and salmon. - Just as foods can help reduce the symptoms of menstrual cramping and bleeding, foods can aggravate your symptoms. This includes eating excessive amounts of sugar -- such as cakes, cookies and pies. These are known to contribute to water retention, which make you feel bloated and uncomfortable. High-salt content foods -- french fries, pizza and other fried foods --- can also contribute to bloating. Caffeine-containing beverages like tea and coffee should be avoided as they can contribute to headaches, mood swings and trouble sleeping. - If you're craving chocolate, make sure it's over 70 per cent cocoa. This bittersweet treat will help you relax your muscles. - We all know fluids are essential when your body is cramping or bloating. Drinking two to three litres of water during your period is essential. - Tea is an easy way to replace your caffeine craving. Green tea to soothe cramps. now, even though green tea contains caffeine, try decaffeinated green tea instead — but be aware, you may lose some health benefits with a decaf version. Caffeine is another no-no. Drinking lots of coffee or pop during your period can increase higher levels of tension and anxiety. - Avoid anything that can damage your liver should be off the list. So, avoid alcohol. - Red meat, Smart says, is also know to cause stomach upsets and cramps. Medication: Start taking homoeopathic medicines - Mag. Phos. 6x and Colocynthis 200 - every 2 hrly. during the time of menses. And take Five Phos. and Alfaalfa Tonic - thrice daily for 1 month. Revert me back.

How Does Masturbation Affect You?

It is the act of intimately pleasuring oneself by touching, feeling and caressing the organs. It is a safe and very common way of satisfying ones sexual needs. It can be beneficial to one’s health.

The common reasons why people masturbate are

  1. Relieving sexual tension
  2. To relax
  3. Achieve sexual pleasure
  4. To satiate oneself when partners are unavailable

What are the benefits of masturbation?

Although, there is a lot of stigma around masturbating; it is something very common and can have great beneficial effects on your health and mental well-being. According to research, 50 per cent of men and 50 per cent of the women feel guilt or shame about masturbating. It is the best way to avoid sexually transmitted diseases and also avoid unwanted pregnancies. It truly helps to explore our sexuality and it gives you an idea about what you like and what you do not and the spots that really work for you and the ones that do not. This can act as a pleasure guide even when you are engaging with your partner.

Masturbation is good because:

  1. It is a stress buster
  2. It helps you out when you feel too frisky
  3. A sense of well-being is created
  4. It releases sexual tension
  5. Helps increase self-image
  6. Helps you sleep
  7. It is the release you need when you abstain from sex with other individuals
  8. It can help release period cramps and muscle tension
  9. The ability to climax increases
  10. It is a treatment for certain sexual dysfunctions
  11. It helps when you are feeling exceptionally frisky
  12. The uncomfortable morning wood can be eased

What are the risks of masturbation?
There are not many risks associated with masturbation, although irritation of the skin is possible. This minor problem can be overcome by the use of lubrication or simply slap on some moisturiser and you are good to go.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
