Almonds May Help Reduce Wrinkles

Almonds May Help Reduce Wrinkles


According to a recent study published in the journal Phytotherapy research, daily almond consumption may help reduce wrinkle severity in postmenopausal females to potentially have natural antiaging benefits.


The study was a randomized controlled trial in which participants consumed 20% of their daily energy consumption in either almonds or a calorie-matched snack for 16 weeks. A total of 50 healthy postmenopausal females were recruited, 31 participants were enrolled, and 28 completed the study. A facial photograph and image analysis system was used to obtain standardized photographs and information on wrinkle width and severity. Also, measurements of water loss and sebum production were taken.
 
Researchers at UC Davis observed that the almond group had significantly decreased wrinkle severity and width compared with the control group after 16 weeks.
