Here's Why You Should Go Nuts Over Nuts!

Consuming nuts as part of a balanced diet can improve the overall health. Nuts are a good source of dietary fiber, essential nutrients, including B vitamins (pyridoxine, folate and cobalamin), vitamin E, minerals (calcium, iron, zinc, potassium and magnesium, selenium, manganese and copper), and antioxidant compounds such as flavonoids and resveratrol.

Nuts also contain monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) that are good for the heart and brain health. Commonly available nuts are almonds, walnuts, pistachios, peanuts, and cashew nuts. Some of the less familiar nuts that are packed with vital nutrients include pecans, hazelnuts, chestnuts, Brazil nuts and macadamia nuts.

Although nuts provide a lot of nutrients, it is important to limit the portion size as they are high in calories. Choosing nuts instead of an unhealthy snack may help follow a heart-healthy diet. Nuts can be a great snack food and ideal to satisfy hunger pangs during the day.

A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that consuming one serving of nuts every day can decrease the risk of dying from any cause including cancer and heart disease by 20%.

A single serving (28 grams) of nuts not only nourishes the body with vital nutrients, but also
. Aid in weight loss
. Improve brain health
. Protect against heart disease, diabetes, and cancer
. Boost immunity
. Accelerate metabolism
. Keep the skin, hair, and nails healthy
. Help fight depression
So, grab a handful of nuts and include them as part of your daily diet to stay healthy and prevent diseases.
