Size of study:
5,582 healthy adults from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES)
Consumption of nuts and seeds accounts for meaningful decreases in cellular aging. Nuts and seeds intake was positively and linearly associated with telomere length such that adults of the same age had more than 1.5 years of reduced cell aging if they consumed 5% of their total energy from nuts and seeds.
