Methods

This Italian study looked at the relationship between peanut/tree nut consumption and cognitive function after 3 years. They measured nut intake using both self-reported dietary intake and urinary markers.

Key Findings

Nut consumption estimated either by the dietary marker or by the urinary marker model was in both cases associated with less cognitive decline in older adults.
