2. Walnuts – The best way to purchase walnuts are while they are still in the shell. Walnuts are ideal for athletes due to the anti inflammatory monounsaturated fats.

  1. I really like that nuts are so good for you. I used to snack on them all the time at work, particularly almonds and walnuts. Unfortunately, I found the almonds are especially high in salicylates. As I was getting a lot of ringing in my ears, I eliminated almonds ( and dried apricots) Voila! Tinnitis stopped. I can still tolerate them, just not very often. Thanks for great information.

      Thanks so much for your comment. That was interesting about the almonds causing ringing in your ears. I have trouble with ‘Vertigo’ and I eat almonds a lot so you may have something there. Will give almonds a miss for a while and see if it makes a difference.

      Once again Thank You
