Cashew nuts are a good source of magnesium, a mineral required for muscle, nerve and bone health. Magnesium is vital for energy production and is particularly important for muscular relaxation and muscle protein synthesis. These nutrient dense nuts are also rich in manganese, important for blood sugar control and formation of the powerful free radical scavenger ‘Super oxide dismutase’. Copper is also abundant in cashew nuts, known to contribute to red blood cell production and nerve health.
Rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, these healthy fats are often associated with the Mediterranean diet, known to contribute to reducing cholesterol. Cashew nuts are also a useful source of dietary fibre (6g per 100 g). Cashew nuts contribute to your protein goals. ¼ cup provides 10 grams of protein.
These are such a healthy and tasty snack. I have to limit myself to a small handful a day though otherwise I could munch through more than I need!!
