In case you happen to be nuts about nuts, then you’ll make a big miss if you don’t try the organic wild Brazil nuts from Now Foods! This wholesome snack is made with 100% certified organic Brazil nuts that are found in their native home – the Amazon jungle. These huge crescent-moon shaped fellas contain a lot of protein and dietary fiber, plus they’re a fine source of vitamin E and an excellent one of B group vitamins, but what’s most astounding is that these super nutritious nuts are perhaps the richest selenium food source there is! B vitamins are key to our well-being, because they aid in the prevention of depression, the relieving of stress, memory boosting, burning fats and glycose to produce energy, the reviving and producing of new DNA cells etc. What about selenium? It’s an important trace mineral with strong antioxidant properties that helps prevent liver damage, cancer and avoid cardio problems. Magnesium is used for the soothing of headaches, relieving Fibromyalgia, muscle spasms and muscle cramps. The mineral can be a part of an acne, eczema and psoriasis treatment, as well as used for preventing high blood pressure, diabetes and osteoporosis. Like selenium, magnesium too is used for improving mental health and sleep, and more specifically depression, anxiety, insomnia, Restless Leg Syndrome, Autism, tics and more.
All the nuts’ essential nutrients and texture are maintained by drying at low temperature. Though Brazil nuts are often mixed into trail mixes and nut mixes, Now Foods has made it easier for those who want only this nutrient power house. A truly delicious raw superfood that can be eaten as it is or used to provide a wonderful texture to dishes. Enjoy!
