Health benefits of Brazil nuts

  • Brazil nuts are high in calories, contain good quantities of vitamins, anti-oxidants and minerals.
  • 100 g of Brazil nuts provide about 656 calories. Their high caloric content chiefly comes from their fats.
  • Brazil nuts are also a very good source of vitamin E. Vitamin E is a powerful lipid-soluble antioxidant.
  • Brazil nuts hold exceptionally high levels of selenium. 100 g of nuts provide about 1917 µg or 3485% of the recommended daily intake of selenium, rating them as the highest natural source of this mineral. Selenium is an important cofactor for anti-oxidant enzyme, glutathione-peroxidase. Just 1-2 nuts a day provides enough of this trace element. Adequate selenium in the diet help prevent coronary artery disease, liver cirrhosis, and cancers.
  • Brazil nuts are an excellent source of B complex group of vitamins such as thiamin , riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B 6 (pyridoxine), and folates. Altogether, these vitamins work as co-factors for enzymes during cellular substrate metabolism inside the body.
  • In addition to selenium, Brazil nuts have very good levels of other minerals such as copper, magnesium, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, and zinc. Copper helps prevent anemia and bone weakness (osteopenia and osteoporosis). Manganese is an all-important co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase.
