CASHEW NATION

IMG_5248

Giving thanks to the cashews in my palm, here are some health benefits of cashews:

  1. Keep your heart and blood vessels healthy by providing your cardiovascular system with a steady stream of healthy, monounsaturated fatty acids.
  2. Build and maintain strong bones and teeth by supplying your body with a rich supply of magnesium, which is just as important to the physical structure of your bones and teeth as calcium.
  3. Promote healthy blood pressure – magnesium-rich cashews can help keep your blood vessels relaxed, combating the negative effects of poor dietary choices and stress than can cause high blood pressure.
  4. Keep your nerves relaxed – this is also accomplished by magnesium, which promotes a healthy, relaxed tone in your nerves and muscles by acting as a natural calcium channel blocker.
  5. Decrease muscle cramps and soreness – also due to the high magnesium content of high quality cashews.
  6. Promote deep, restful sleep through the relaxation effect that magnesium has on your nervous system and muscles.
  7. Keep your joints, bones, and blood vessels flexible by supplying your body with significant amounts of copper.
  8. Prevent premature aging and disease by supporting the antioxidant activity of a powerful enzyme called superoxide dismutase.
