Cashew nuts, a richly sweet product of the cashew tree, have gained popularity not only for their succulent flavour but for health benefits too. Cashew nuts are beneficial for your health as they contain Heart-Protective Monounsaturated Fats, Copper, and Magnesium.i
Of all the tree nuts they have the lowest fat content. This is due to the agreeable fat ratio in the nut, 1:2:1 for saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated, respectively, which scientists say is the ideal ratio for optimal health. Cashews have no cholesterol and are an energizing food. Cashew nuts have a high energy density and high amount of dietary fibre, both have been attributed to a beneficial effect on weight management, but only when eaten in moderation
Cashews pack a mix of nutrients and minerals not found in many common foods. The cashew nuts' high magnesium content takes the credit for its healthy heart qualities. This heart healthy mineral protects against high blood pressure, muscle spasms, migraine headaches, tension, soreness and fatigue. Magnesium also works with calcium to support healthy muscles and bones in the human body. With a high copper content, too, cashew nut consumption helps the body utilize iron, eliminate free radicals, develop bone and connective tissue, and produce the skin and hair pigment melanin. ii Copper, another essential component found in cashews, is vital in energy production and antioxidant defence, producing greater flexibility in blood vessels, bones and joints.
