Prevents Cancer. Proanthocyanidins are a class of flavonols which fight against tumor cells by stopping them to divide further. This is one of the major cashew nut benefits.
Healthy Heart. Cashews contain low fat content when compared to other nuts. They are cholesterol free.
Lowers High Blood Pressure. Cashew nuts lower your blood pressure with the help of magnesium present in them.
Healthy Bones. Magnesium, which is the main content in cashew nuts, is also important for bone health.
They reduce heart attack risk. Those who consume almonds five times a week have about a 50 percent reduction in risk of heart attack according to the Loma Linda School of Public Health.
They lower ‘bad’ cholesterol. Almonds added to the diet have a favorable affect on blood cholesterol levels, according to a clinical study by Dr. Gene Spiller, Director of the Health Research and Studies Center, Inc.
They protect artery walls from damage. It was found that the flavonoids in almond skins work in synergy with the vitamin E, thus reducing the risk of heart disease (Research at Tufts University).
They provide healthy fats and aid in weight loss. Although nuts are high in fat, frequent nut eaters are thinner on average than those who almost never consume nuts. (Data from the Nurses’ Health Study). Those who ate nuts at least two times per week were 31% less likely to gain weight than were those who never or seldom ate them, in a study involving 8865 adults. (WHFood’s article on almonds).
They help provide good brain function. Almonds contain riboflavin and L-carnitine, nutrients that boost brain activity and may also reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
They alkalize the body. Almonds are the only nut and one of the few proteins that are alkaline forming.
Almonds lower the rise in blood sugar and insulin after meals.
High Selenium Content. The greatest health benefit of Brazil Nuts lies in their high selenium content, and this is what makes them so special. One single kernel provides 100% of the daily value for selenium.
Contains Unsaturated Fats and Omega-6 Fatty Acids. They are particularly rich in palmitoleic acid and oleic acid, which help lower bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol levels in the blood. These monounsaturated fats are therefore very useful in preventing coronary heart diseases, heart attacks and strokes.
Complete Protein. Brazil Nuts are good sources of complete proteins, meaning that they provide all of the essential amino acids needed for human growth and development, and required for muscle tissue repair.
Important Minerals. Besides selenium, Brazil Nuts contain high amounts of other important minerals such as copper, magnesium, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, and zinc. These minerals enhance a wide range of bodily functions, while strengthening the immune system and promoting good health.
