There are very many different types of nuts including; almonds, walnuts, pistachios, cashews, peanuts, groundnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pine nuts, hazelnuts, chestnuts, brazil nuts, and on and on. The list is probably nearly limitless. Technically, nuts are hardened seeds of plants which have many benefits to our health all of these provide benefits to our health.

Although they were considered unhealthy not too long ago, more and more evidence is surfacing that they indeed have many benefits for health.

It is recommended to take at least 1.5 ounces or 42 grams of nuts every day, but you should know that some nuts are more healthy than others. Read on to see the top 3 most healthy types of nuts and just why we think you should be eating them as often as possible:

1. Walnuts

Walnuts are one of the best nuts in the world; they contain some of the most powerful antioxidants known and in large quantities, which prevents cellular damage that can lead to heart disease, cancer, and premature aging.

They are also rich in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a type of omega-3 fatty acids which can fight inflammation. Also, L-argine which can also be found in walnuts in huge amounts, helps reduce blood pressure.

2. Almonds

Almonds are also known as the “Miracle Nut”. Almonds are high in fiber which can prevent colon cancer and are also high in vitamin E, an antioxidant which boosts the immune system and can reduce damage to cells.

They are also high in minerals like iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium. You can get twenty five percent of your magnesium a day from almonds and they contain more calcium (which strengthens bones) than an equal amount of cow milk.

Almonds are also high in vitamin E which can boost the immune system and also act as an antioxidant to reduce cell damage.They reduce blood sugar and insulin levels, which can lead to a lower chance of acquiring type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

In a recent study, they were also proven shown to reduce weight as they are low in calories but high in healthy fat that helps your body to burn unhealthy fat.

3. Pecans

Pecans are rich in antioxidants like vitamin E, which reduce the chances for diseases like Alzheimer’s, heart disease and cancer.

They have also been proven to reduce weight by lowering cholesterol in the blood and are rich in over twenty vital minerals and vitamins we need.

We all love nuts, and with the exception of people who might have an allergy to nuts, we would encourage everyone to feast on nuts every day.
