Did you know that brazilian nuts are source of vitamin B12 and offer many healthy benefits?

I recently learnt that Brazilian nuts are excellent source of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Not only they are tasty but their consumption brings along many benefits such as:

  1. Anticancer- known as one of the anti-cancer foods due to their high ellagic acid and selenium levels

  2. Heart health- a super food that brings healthy unsaturated fats or “good” forms of cholesterol, or omega-3 fatty acids

  3. Acne treatment- who would have thought that the high zinc content in Brazil nuts has been shown to protect against acne or lessen its appearance

  4. May reduce inflammation- Brazil nuts are rich in antioxidants

  5. May be good for your brain

  6. May be good for your heart

Limiting your intake to 1-3 Brazil nuts per day is a good way to avoid consuming too much selenium.
