Researchers from Loma Linda University (LLU) Health in Beaumont, US, investigated the brainwaves triggered by eating nuts and discovered further evidence that eating nuts may boost brain strength.
For the study, a team of researchers used participants who regularly consumed various kinds of nuts such as almonds, cashews, peanuts, pecans, pistachios, and walnuts. The scientists used an EEG to measure their brain waves.
Authors conclude in their study: “This study provides objective evidence that [brain wave strength] for different brain EEG wave bands are modulated differentially by different types of nuts. These data appear to support an association of nuts’ health benefits with an increase in [delta waves] and [gamma waves].”
