This is nuts!

Ayurvedic nut nutrition

This is nuts! And seeds. If you were to guess which of these is best for your skin, which would you choose?

The first three things I ask about when someone presents with an inflammatory skin condition or acne is if they are eating salt with dairy (cheese among other things), fermented foods and nuts. All of these things produce heat in our body and can be responsible for pesky acne or a flare in things like psoriasis. Seeds tend to be on the safer side for these people because they are cooler in their post-digestive effect.

This isn't to say you should never consume these things, but if you have inflammatory skin concerns, try reducing them to see what happens. When you do consume nuts, choose raw and soak them for several hours first to improve their digestibility.
