Great Benefits of Nuts

minimizing the risk of developing blood clots, and thus reducing the risk of heart
stroke. Some of the nuts are also found to have Omega-3 fatty acids, which help in
reducing heart ailments. Nuts mainly reduce the risk of an unsafe heart rhythm
related with heart strokes. Several nuts such as almonds, macadamia nuts,
hazelnuts, and pecans contain high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids. Peanuts, which is
not a nut technically, is also found to be a healthy nutrient for heart.

Nuts also contain a substance called argentine, which amplifies the production of
Nitric Oxide. Nitric oxide helps in keeping the arteries healthy by keeping them flexible
and less prone to form blood clots.

The guidelines on healthy eating prescribe having at least 1 to 2 ounces (equivalent
to a small handful) of nuts every day. By eating nuts, you can not curb various health
problems even when you don't cut down on saturated fats found in many dairy
products and meat.

Nuts have a good level of Vitamin E present in them, which helps in keeping your
heart healthy. They also prevent body cells by averting the risk of developing cancer.

don't delay! Get yourself ready for a nutty treat!
