Can a common nut slow Lou Gehrig’s disease?

One of the more devastating diseases I see is Lou Gehrig’s disease or ALS. This disease slowly destroys your motor function and leads to a long drawn- out death. In my book, anything you can do to prevent or even slow the decline is a godsend. Now there’s evidence that what you eat can help protect you.

Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Lowell found that feeding mice pecans slows decline in motor function. The researchers bred the mice specifically to demonstrate a decline in their motor function similar to ALS. The mice that ate the most pecans fared the best.

The researchers suggested that the high antioxidant content of pecans contributed to the protection. I agree. Pecans are a whole food loaded with phytonutrients. But, there’s one more possible explanation that is in concert with other data I’ve discussed in recent issues of my newsletter.

Pecans are a rich source of unadulterated parent essential oils, which are vital for your brain. I strongly suggest adding some raw nuts to your diet. It’s best to soak them in water overnight. You’ll have to eat a lot of pecans to see any results. And pecans can be expensive. So an alternative is to take
Yes EFA from Advanced Bionutritionals. This is an easy way to get your parent omega oils.
