Dear Reader,

If you have metabolic syndrome and you want to help your heart, decrease gnawing hunger, and improve your mood, you're going to want to make one small addition to your shopping list.

Make sure you're picking up plenty of nuts on your next trip to the supermarket, and you could increase your levels of serotonin, raise your energy levels, and boost your heart health.

Researchers in Spain reported in the Journal of Proteome Research that eating just one ounce of mixed nuts (including raw unpeeled walnuts, almonds, and hazelnuts — we're not talking honey roasted, here) led to an increase in serotonin levels in the bodies of patients with metabolic syndrome.

For the study, 22 people with metabolic syndrome added nuts to their diets for 12 weeks. They were compared to 20 metabolic syndrome patients who were instructed to avoid nuts for the same period of time.

What's the big deal about the study? Serotonin is associated with energy regulation, metabolism, and the balance of glucose in the body. It helps decrease feelings of hunger and increase feelings of happiness and well-being.

This study is the first linking nut consumption to a reduction of substances in the body associated with heart risk factors like inflammation.

The researchers also found that eating nuts increased levels of urolithins, a kind of polyphenol found in walnuts. Urolithins might play a role in reducing inflammation and helping heart health.

So there you have it — a couple of great reasons to go for a handful of mixed nuts the next time you find yourself craving a snack. Your heart will thank you for it!

Hair? Where?

Q: My excess facial hair leaves me feeling self-conscious. I've tried waxing, but can't stand it. Is there anything I can do?

Dr. Jonathan V. Wright: Sip a cup of strong spearmint tea to decrease the excess testosterone production that can lead to excess body hair.

Researchers in Turkey asked 21 women with excess facial and body hair to drink one cup of strong spearmint tea twice daily for five days in the pre-ovulatory phases of their menstrual cycles. Total testosterone wasn't reduced, but there was a significant reduction in free testosterone and a significant increase in oestradiol — this can put the brakes on the stimulation of unwanted hair growth.

Enjoy a cup on a regular basis, but don't overdo it — higher testosterone does, after all, stimulate a healthy libido.
