Top 5 Benefits of Nuts Revealed

Nuts are tasty, convenient and one of the healthiest natural foods out there. Although high in fat, nuts have an impressive number of benefits for overall wellbeing.

Today, we’re sharing some of the biggest benefits of eating nuts! 

1.     A great amount of nutrients – Some nuts are higher in certain nutrients than others, but a good mixture can provide vitamin E, selenium, magnesium and much more, not to mention the fact that they’re loaded with source anti-oxidants, helping to protect against problems such as cell damage and stress. 

2.     They can aid weight loss – Several studies suggest that those who incorporate eating nuts into their diets lose significantly more weight than those who don’t. This is because nuts are filling, are great at replacing more sugary snacks and their complex composition means your body doesn’t absorb all the fat they contain. 

3.     May lower cholesterol – Nuts have impressive cholesterol-lowering abilities thanks to their high content of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids. 

4.     Reduce inflammation – Chronic, long-term inflammation can cause numerous health risks, but research suggests that nuts may reduce inflammation, especially in those with diabetes, kidney disease and other long-term conditions.

5.     High in fibre – The right kind of fibre has a wide range of beneficial applications in your body. Nuts, especially almonds, pistachios and hazelnuts, are particularly high in fibre, meaning better gut health, reduced risk of disease and a decrease in calorie absorption.

    4 Reasons We Love Cashew Nuts

    Cashew Nuts are one of our biggest selling products on Ginni's - so we wanted to dig a little deeper into why. These little nuts are full of amazing health benefits, so it's no wonder so many of our customers stock up on them regularly! Let's take a look at those health benefits...

    Lower fat than most nuts.

    Cashews actually have a lower fat content than most other nuts, approximately 82% of their fat is unsaturated fatty acids, plus about 66% of this unsaturated fatty acid content are heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, similar to those found in olive oil.

    They help you have a healthy heart

    Research shows that eating more nuts, such as Cashews, can lower your risk for cardiovascular disease. This may occur by reducing blood pressure and “bad” cholesterol levels. Nuts are naturally cholesterol-free and contain good amounts of heart-healthy fats, fibre, and protein.

    They're good for your eyes

    Cashew Nuts also contain high levels of lutein and zeaxanthin, which act as antioxidants when consumed regularly. A good excuse to have a few Cashews as a mid-morning snack! These compounds protect the eyes from light damage (which can turn into blindness in the elderly), and can even help decrease the instance of cataracts.

     A good all-rounder

    Cashews contain 31% of the daily recommended value for copper, along with 23% for manganese, 20% for magnesium and 17% for phosphorus, add to that 12% of the daily recommended value for vitamin K.

    In case you need any more convincing, our Cashew Nuts come in a range of flavours, so there's sure to be one that suits you and your snacking cravings!
