The ancients ascribed amazing aphrodisiac powers to nuts and dried fruit, particularly pine nuts, walnuts, almonds and figs. The Roman poet Ovid, whose first work, Amores, established him as an expert on seduction, included pine nuts on his list of love potions.
While there is no scientific proof that validates the passionate side of this theory, science does support the belief that nuts and dried fruit have many benefits — rich in fiber, phyto-nutrients and antioxidants such as Vitamin E and selenium. Nuts are also high in protein, plant sterols and fat — but mostly mono-unsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which have all been shown to lower LDL cholesterol.
