Pecans are nuts that are full of antioxidants, potassium, protein, ellagic acid, and vitamin B complexes. They are heart healthy and can help reduce the risk of heart disease because of their amounts of oleic acid and phenolic antioxidants. 

Pecans are also high in magnesium which is a natural anti-inflammatory and helps reduce blood pressure. That makes pecans beneficial for inflammation-based diseases such as arthritis and Alzheimer’s disease.
