Due to their high concentration of omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), walnuts are one of the finest nuts for decreasing inflammation.
Almonds have more fibre per ounce than other nuts. Fiber helps with weight control, cholesterol, and inflammation.
Almonds are rich in vitamin E, so eating them can help reduce inflammation.
Peanuts were specifically associated with lower tumor necrosis factor receptor 2—promoting the inflammatory activity of cells.
Peanuts are also high in Arginine, a type of amino acid that assists with building muscle.
Pecans prevent inflammation by lowering the formation of inflammatory mediator molecules and being rich in omega-3 fatty acids.
Pecans can offset pro-inflammatory effects of too much saturated fat.
Hazelnuts are a good anti-inflammatory food and the second-richest source of monounsaturated fatty acids.
Hazelnuts are hypolipidemic, meaning they're low in saturated fat and heart-healthy due to their ability to reduce LDL cholesterol levels linked to inflammation and chronic disease risk.
Pistachios reduce oxidative stress and LDL cholesterol. Oxidative stress imbalances reactive oxygen species, causing persistent inflammation.
Polyphenol-rich foods, including pistachios, reduce oxidative stress and inflammation.
