A type of tree nut native to North America, pecans are known for their buttery and rich flavor. They contain numerous nutrients including;
PECANS AND CANCER
Pecan nut have been extensively studied for their cancer-fighting abilities. Studies suggest that gamma-tocopherol, tocotrienols, flavonoids and phenolic acids present in pecans exhibit protective effects against carcinogenic cells.
As per research gamma-tocopherol and tocotrienols produce stronger anti-inflammatory protection than alpha-tocopherol and help in inhibiting the growth of the cancer cells effectively.
On the other hand, flavonoids and phenolic acids influence the cell signaling pathways and gene expressions which increase antioxidant and anti-inflammatory enzymes that prevent metastasis (spreading of cancer cells from one part to another). (2)
Research suggests that ellagitannins, a type of polyphenols present in pecans have been shown to influence the gene expression that stimulates self-destruction of the cancer cells.
Ellagitannins are converted to ellagic acid and then to a compound known as urolithins that increases antioxidant enzymes that decrease the growth of the carcinogenic cells. (2)
Pecans are a rich source of dietary fiber and healthy fats. According to medical professionals, increased fiber consumption through pecans reduces the risk of cancer as it aids in the removal of carcinogenic cells since it supports healthy gut growth.
Pecans are also known to contain mono and poly-unsaturated fats which protect the body from systemic inflammation that prevents the development of certain cancers. It contains omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid that protects cellular membrane from inflammation and reduces the production of proinflammatory proteins. (3)
Eat as per your Body Weight
It is crucial that an individual follows portion control during the consumption of nuts. Therefore, follow the rule of one ounce of nuts a day. It is recommended that an individual can consume 15 pecans in a day. (8)
Shelled pecans can be kept in air-tight containers or zip-locked packets in the refrigerator for up to 9 months. To increase the shelf life, you can also freeze them for 2 years, but it is essential to thaw and refrigerate them during the freezing period. (9)
Most pecans do not show side effects, however, some individuals may develop allergic reactions upon consumption of pecans. Symptoms like development of hives and rashes, vomiting, shortness of breath or dizziness can be observed. (10)
