The Science behind BOOSTIE!

Updated: Dec 28, 2023

BOOSTIE was created with intention - to utilize the nutrition in delicious nuts and seeds to actually improve your health. And there’s science to back it up! What makes nuts and seeds so powerful you might ask? Well, they are packed with amazing nutrition like: omega-3 fatty acids, alpha-lineolenic acid (ALA), vidmatine E, L-arginine, fiber, and unsaturated fats…to name a few. (1). This nutrition can actually aid a myriad of health issues. Heart Problems Evidence from clinical trials has shown that eating nuts and seeds can lower the risk of developing high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. (2) They have also been found to decrease inflammation in and around your heart. In fact, one study found that eating one ounce of nuts daily over six weeks lowered “bad” types of cholesterol. (3) Another 5-year study in Spain involving 7,000 people from 55 to 80 found that regularly eating nuts and seeds reduced the risk of cardiovascular related deaths (4) Cancer The anti-inflammatory properties found in nuts and seeds can also help with preventing certain cancers. A 2015 study found that eating nuts and seeds can reduce the risk of breast cancer by 97%. (4) Other studies have been conducted yielding similar results with other cancers, like colon and pancreatic cancer. Nuts like walnuts and almonds contain omega-3s that reduce inflammation in cell walls, helping reduce risk of cancer. (5) Obesity Recent research has shown that seeds and nuts are a great aid in weight loss journeys, as they’re a small but mighty way to regulate your appetite. Additionally, scientists have found that our bodies don’t actually consume all the calories from one serving of nuts. They are a great option for people with type 2 diabetes because nuts and seeds don’t raise blood sugar very much. (6) Scientists are still finding out more ways nuts and seeds can benefit our overall health. However, experts at Tufts University have said it is best to “aim for a small palmful of nuts/seeds…five days a week, ” (2) One pre-packaged serving of BOOSTIE makes it easy to regulate portion size and reap the amazing benefits of nuts and seeds.
