Compass healthy nuts are rich in energy and nutrients, help lower bad cholesterol while increasing good cholesterol, and have plenty of omega-3 fatty acids that help lower the risk of blood pressure, coronary artery disease, strokes and certain cancers. The antioxidants in nuts also protect you from degenerative nerve disease and viral/fungal infections. Nuts are also rich in minerals like manganese, potassium, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, zinc and selenium. The vitamin E in nuts is also a powerful antioxidant while its many vital B-complex groups of vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6, and folates are essential for overall health. (For maximum nutritional value eat raw, unprocessed nuts versus processed and roasted nuts.)
The flavonoids in almonds, together with their vitamin E, reduces risk of heart disease by lowering bad cholesterol. Almonds also reduce rising blood sugar levels and insulin after you eat meals. Almonds also promote the formation of alkalines. An alkaline-deficient body is more susceptible to osteoporosis, lower energy levels, reduced immune function and weight gain.
The fibre in Pecans promotes regularity and cleanses your gastrointestinal system. Their monounsaturated fats help to prevent coronary disease and strokes. Pecans also contribute to overall disease prevention thanks to their high antioxidant levels.
Walnuts contain the hormone melatonin that can help improve brain function and sleep. They are rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids that reduce bad cholesterol and combat heart disease. Walnuts have also been linked to reducing the chances of developing type 2 diabetes.
