BRAZIL NUTS

IMMUNITY

The outstanding health benefit of brazil nuts is that they are incredibly rich in Selenium. Selenium is a powerful anitioxidant that  fights against free radicals in the body, protecting against disease and illnesses, reducing inflammation and helping to maintain healthy thyroid function. One serving contains 700% of your daily selenium intake!

NOTE: Brazil nuts are the best way to get our daily requirement of Selenium!  No need for supplements, snack on a handful of brazil nuts and you’ll have obtained all the selenium your body needs!

YOUTHFUL, GLOWING SKIN

Being loaded with antioxidants, Brazil nuts can reduce the occurrence of wrinkles considerably. Vitamins A and E  help to increase skin collagen, resulting in a smoother complexion. Selenium speeds up cell turnover and provides your complexion with a natural glow. It also promotes skin health by improving the elasticity of the skin, and reducing redness.

PROTEIN BOOST

Brazil nuts are good sources of complete protein, which means they provide all essential amino acids needed for our growth, repair and development.

HEART HEALTH

Brazil nuts are bursting with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, which help to lower cholesterol and prevent cardiovascular and heart disease.
