Organic Pecans are one of the most antioxidant tree nuts. Native Americans who valued these nuts for their rich, nutritious content used them for its healthful qualities.
Growing and Farming
Today, many farms are engaged in growing organic pecans with the help of environment-friendly techniques such as crop rotation, compost, biological pesticide control, and some others. Because they don’t use synthetic fertilizers and growth-enhancing, organic nuts do not contain any pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides.
Why Organic Pecans Are Better
All pecans – both organic and conventional – are a powerhouse of healthful nutrients: protein, carbohydrates, and fat. They are especially rich in minerals – manganese, copper, zinc – and in vitamins. What is essential – is the number of antioxidants that each nut contains. Recent studies have revealed that organic pecans are up to 60% higher in the number of antioxidants than non-organic ones.
Health Benefits of Organic Pecans
- Protection of the heart
Studies have shown that pecans balance cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of hypertension. Their high content of monosaturated fat makes them invaluable for people with heart and vessel disorders.
- Lower risk of type 2 diabetes
Although rich in carbohydrates, pecans help maintain blood sugar levels, which is of great importance for people inclined to this severe illness.
- High in Antioxidants
The high content of such powerful antioxidants as ellagic acid, vitamin E, beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin makes pecans helpful in fighting radical cells.
- Anti-toxicity properties
Pecans help ward off toxic substances due to the high fiber content and protect the liver, kidneys, and bladder
