The Osteoporosis Dynamic Duo

The benefits of bioidentical natural progesterone for osteoporosis prevention and treatment are well established but how could the humble walnut make it even better?

Walnuts are one of nature’s superfoods, packed with synergistic nutrients that work together to provide a host of health benefits without causing the negative side effects associated with pharmaceutical drugs.

Bioidentical natural progesterone helps build bone, but just by adding a few walnuts to your diet could you reduce your vulnerability to bone loss even further?

Says who?  Well the information comes from a new study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, which has found that walnuts prevent bone loss, lower LDL (or “bad”) cholesterol and even fight cancer.  The study was conducted by researchers from both the University of California and the U.S. Department of Agriculture and they found that because walnuts are naturally high in beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, which are known to help prevent the type of bone loss that comes with aging. At the same time, the protein found in walnuts helps to build muscle, which is associated with stronger bones.

How Do They Do It?

If you are looking for the exact element in walnuts that can do all this then you are going to be disappointed, or amazed, depending on your point of view.  Walnuts, in common with other whole foods, have no single nutrient inside them can be pinpointed and isolated as the sole beneficial factor.  This is the synergistic effect and the study researchers noted this in their report by commenting that it is the totality of the walnut’s multiple constituents that enable it do this and not confined to any one of its specific fatty acids or tocopherols.”

Are pecans as good as walnuts? They seem similar – and taste much better….

The researchers specifically targeted walnuts so possibly not. The trick with walnuts I have found is to have them as fresh as possible, they get bitter as they get older.
