Super Foods! Walnut Edition

Walnuts have been known for being a super food. Studies have shown that men who add walnuts to their diet, receive a huge boost to their cardiovascular system.  The gamma-tocopherol form of vitamin E in walnuts has been found to provide significant protection from heart problems.
And now a new study found that it can boost the quality of the man’s sperm.  Over 100 men were brought into a UCLA study where they gave a sperm sample, then half the group ate 2.5 ounces of walnuts every day for 12 weeks and the other half to continue with their normal diet.  When both groups came back and got tested again, the walnut group experienced improvement in sperm vitality, motility, and morphology – key components in male fertility.
