Date of medical study: 7th May 2019
While you may have heard about the benefits of nuts for health in general, this medical study which was carried out in Spain, has highlighted the link between nut intake in the first trimester with more positive outcomes in cognitive function after birth.
A maternal diet rich in nuts during the first three months of pregnancy has been evaluated by this study. Nut intake at this time can improve the offspring’s attention capacity, cognitive function and long term memory.
Carried out by the INMA project, which is located in various parts of Spain, including Sabadell (Barcelona), Valencia, Guipuzcoa and Asturias, this study included around 2200 Mum and child pairs. These subjects were enrolled in cohorts and their eating habits were studied.
