Health Benefits of Cashews
Cashew nuts are very nutritious and can help you meet the required daily dose of several essential nutrients. This is the reason why eating them regularly can have a variety of positive effects on your health and general wellbeing.
- They provide you with ‘good’ cholesterol
We actually need cholesterol to stay healthy, but there are two kinds of it, ‘good’ HDL cholesterol doesn’t carry the risk of coronary heart disease and other conditions associated with ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol. Most importantly consuming foods rich in HDL cholesterol, such as cashews, actually helps lower the levels of LDL in your blood.
- Cashew nuts are rich in zinc, copper, and selenium
These nuts actually contain a larger number of minerals, but the levels of these are particularly high. Copper is a vital element that participates in dozens of chemical reactions in the body. It affects the production of enzymes that regulate various processes essential for maintaining general health. Selenium also takes part in enzyme production. It’s most outstanding ‘feature’ is that it acts as a co-factor in the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidases, which is one of the most powerful antioxidants in a human body. Zinc promotes healing and plays an important role in maintaining your overall health as well as beauty.
- Nuts provide you with B vitamins
All nuts contain large amounts of this specific group of vitamins, and cashews are no exception. Each B vitamin is important for keeping your body strong, healthy, and beautiful.
