Walnuts have a great combination of fats that may be particularly good for cardiovascular health. They contain a lot of polyunsaturated fatty acids, specifically alpha-linolenic acids (plant sourced omage 3's) which are associated with health benefits for the heart, the brain, and also the reduction of inflammation in the body. We get more than enough Omega 6's in our diets but not enough omega 3's, this imbalance can increase inflammation. So in a nutshell, they are tiny power houses made up of protein, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. 


Almonds are also a power house nut, as are most nuts, however almonds are higher in protein than most other nuts. High in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats which help reduce LDL ("bad" cholesterol). They're high in vitamin E which is an antioxidant that fights free radicals in the body. The powerful antioxidants in almonds are largely concentrated in the brown layer of their skin. That's why YG uses raw almonds with the skin on! Almonds are good for bone health because of the Phosphorus and Calcium they contain. They are also good for Magnesium and Potassium.

Like most nuts, Pecans contain a good amount of healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats which are beneficial in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels and over all heart, brain, skin, cell health and more. Pecans are a source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) a plant type of omega 3's. They are also high in antioxidants like vitamin A and vitamin E, and a good source of protein. They are high in fibre, folic acid (B9), calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, several more B vitamins and zinc.


Cashews are an interesting nut. Although sold quite often as raw they aren't ever truly raw because in their purely raw stage they are toxic. They are steam roasted to make it easier to remove the outer shell and this also removes the toxins. They also are not truly a nut but a seed and are harvested from the cashew apple tree. However, they have very similar health benefits to other nuts. Cashews contain antioxidants, are low in sugar and rich in fiber, heart-healthy fats, and plant protein. They're also a good source of copper, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, vitamin K, iron, and zinc.

Nuts & seeds contain fats, protein & carbohydrates. The fat content of nuts & seeds can become rancid easily under conditions such as light exposure, being exposed to air, heat & aging. Rancid fats are toxic to the body & add more burden to your liver. If you would like the freshest nuts & seeds then please avoid buying from a bin in bulk form. Try to purchase in pre-sealed packaging that is not clear. The darker the packaging the better. Always check the best before date. Smart health food stores will store their nuts & seeds in refrigerators. Once home store your nuts and seeds in the fridge or freezer, yes freezer ;)
