Eat One Brazil Nut A Day


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

One Brazil Nut each day provides you with your daily value of selenium, which research has suggested can reduce the risk of many cancers and reduce heart disease. Other minerals include copper, magnesium, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, and zinc. They are also a good source of Vitamin E.

Try to eat the raw ones, and limit your intake to 1 or 2 since
excess consumption may result in selenium toxicity. I add it to a handful of cashews & walnuts.

    thanks. this post was confirmation. I stared at some brazil nuts for about 2 min the other day at the grocery store. I was wondering if I should buy or not. I will be going back to get some after reading this post. Thanks again.
