Health Benefits Of Cashew Nuts

1. Cashews are rich in vitamins, soluble dietary fiber, minerals and many phytochemicals that prevent diseases, including cancers.

2. Cashews are also packed with monounsaturated fatty acids good for the heart health like palmitoleic and oleic acids. They belong to the group of essential fatty acids that can decrease the level of harmful LDL cholesterol and increase the level of good HDL cholesterol in our blood.

.3. These tasty nuts are rich in essential minerals too. Some of the most useful minerals found in cashew nuts are magnesium, potassium, manganese, copper, selenium, zinc and iron.

Only a handful of these nuts on a daily basis can provide the necessary amount of these minerals and protect you from deficiency-related diseases.

4. Cashews can be quite useful in numerous essential vitamins like pyridoxine or vitamin B6, pantothenic acid or vitamin B5, thiamin or vitamin B11 and riboflavin. Just 3.5 Oz (100 gr) of nuts provide about 30% of daily recommended levels of B6 (that’s about 0.147 mg). B6 significantly lowers the chances of developing sideroblastic anemia and homocystinuria.

So how to treat depression with cashews?

Just two handfuls of cashews contain between 1.000 and 2.000 mg of tryptophan, which has proven to be equally successful as prescription antidepressants in many cases and the only difference, is that you will avoid the antidepressant side effects. Of course, this is something that big pharma hides from us.

Cashew nuts are an excellent source of tryptophan, a vital amino acid that we need to take through our food. This amino acid helps children grow and develop, regulates our mood, improves sleep, balances our behavior and significantly lowers the level of stress, depression and anxiety.

About the Author:

Pure natural cosmetics is not just a name, for me and many others it became a way of life! All my life I had an affinity to healthy life style. As a dancer and a trainer, i was always looking for the good combination of healthy food and healthy movement. In time I learned that its not only what you eat that matters. Also what you use as cosmetics or medical products is important. The skin is the biggest organ in our body. About 60% of what we put on our skin gets into the blood system and with that to the inner organs. I invest my heart and soul into “Pure natural cosmetics” and the best part is to hear the amazing comments from my client.
