Health Benefits of Brazil Nuts

Skin Care

The comprehensive profile of vitamins and nutrients in Brazil nuts makes it particularly good for improving skin health. The selenium in Brazil nuts gives the skin a healthy glow and improves the elasticity of the skin, thereby preventing premature aging. This is possible because selenium stimulates the activity of glutathione, a powerful antioxidant compound that can remove free radicals from the skin cells that cause wrinkles and even skin cancer.

Weight Loss

The overall nutrients in Brazil nuts like high fiber, proteins, and complex carbohydrates make it quite a filling snack. So, when these nuts are consumed, you are less inclined to snack incessantly and are able to keep a check on those extra calories from unhealthy snacks. One ounce of Brazil nuts contains nearly 200 calories, so limiting the intake of these nuts is advised. Nevertheless, moderate consumption can really boost weight loss efforts.

Stimulate Digestive System

The fiber content of Brazil nuts makes them great for tuning up your digestive system. Fiber facilitates peristaltic motion in the gastrointestinal system, moving food through the digestive system and extracting as many nutrients as possible. This can also help you prevent gastric ulcers, constipation, bloating, cramps, and serious conditions like colon cancer. Also, you will find an increase in energy levels and an improvement in weight loss by keeping your system clean and functioning smoothly.

Improve Hormone Function

 

The selenium content, in Brazil nuts, plays a major role in the proper functioning of your thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is where some of the essential hormones in the body are produced, distributed, and regulated from. By ensuring proper functioning of your thyroid gland (and the production of thyroid itself), the high concentration of selenium will ensure boosted metabolism.
