5 Reasons to Eat Nuts!

5 reasons to eat nuts

1. They are packed with nutrients including:

  • Vitamin E
  • Magnesium
  • Copper
  • Manganese
  • Phosporous
  • Selenium

2. May Aid Weight Loss

Though they’re considered a high calorie food, research suggests that nuts may help you lose weight, keeping you feeling fuller for longer thus reducing appetite.

3. May Lower Cholesterol & Triglycerides

The cholesterol lowering power of nuts may be due to their high content of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids.

4. Beneficial for Type 2 Diabetes & Metabolic Syndrome

Nuts are lower in carbs and don’t raise blood sugar levels as quick as some other carbs. This, substituting nuts for higher- carb foods should lead to reduce blood sugar levels.

5. High in Beneficial Fibre

Many nuts are high in fibre, which can reduce risk of disease, help keep you full, reduce calorie absorption and improve gut health.
