Health Benefits of Nuts

May 30, 2023

Nuts are known as nutrition powerhouses. Here's a few benefits to our health from eating them regularly. 

Nuts are naturally gluten free, dairy free, low in carbs and rich in health supporting nutrients. 

🧡 Brain health - nuts are rich in vitamin E, antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids. Eating nuts regularly is linked to improved cognitive function, memory and reduced age related decline

🧡 Heart Health - regular nut consumption has been associated with a decreased risk of heart disease and cardiovascular events.

🧡 Reduced Inflammation - nuts contain various bioactive compounds, such as polyphenols, flavonoids, and antioxidants, which have anti-inflammatory properties.

🧡 Lower Risk of Some Cancers - regular nut consumption may help lower the risk of certain cancers, such as colorectal, pancreatic, and endometrial cancers. 

🧡 Diabetes Prevention and Management - nuts are naturally low in carbs so don't cause a spike in blood sugars after eating them and can help limit the blood sugar response of other foods eaten at the same time. 

🧡 Nutrient-Rich - nuts are packed with essential nutrients like vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They contain a good amount of vitamin E, magnesium, potassium, and calcium, among others. These nutrients contribute to overall health, supporting functions such as bone strength, nerve function, muscle contraction, and immune system function.

🧡 Longevity - some studies have found an association between nut consumption and increased lifespan.

Amazeballs are made from a variety of nuts including cashews, almonds and walnuts and are an easy, convenient and tasty way to increase your intake of nuts.  They replace other less healthy options such as biscuits, slices and cakes so you are not only increasing your intake of nuts you are decreasing the less healthy foods too.
