Brazil nuts are native to Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela and Peru. Brazil nuts are world's number one source of Selenium, a vital mineral that helps repair tissues in the body. Brazil nuts are known to be a cancer fighting food. We also carry roasted Brazil nuts for those who like a little more flavour. 


Benefits of Brazil Nuts:


Brazil nuts may be the best source of Selenium found in nature. They provide 774 percent of the daily value in one ounce of nuts, or about six of them. This trace mineral is critical for providing antioxidants for the body. They also fight free radicals and soothe areas of the body that are inflamed. As nearly one billion people worldwide suffer from selenium deficiency, this is an ideal nutrient to consume on a regular basis, making brazil nuts a perfect addition to any diet.

Brazil nuts have a very high amount of healthy unsaturated fat and a ton of omega three fatty acids. These are both incredibly good for the heart. That’s because these acids and other acids contained in Brazil Nuts help to balance out cholesterol levels in the body and keep it from building up in arteries, which can lead to heart problems in the future.

Along with improving overall skin health over an extended period, Brazil nuts are also a great thing to consume if you have existing acne or skin problems. The vitamins and minerals from nuts can be applied to the skin to reduce inflammation from acne or other acne-related skin problems.

Thanks to all the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, not to mention anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, Brazil nuts will improve the immune system when consumed on a regular basis. This is mostly because it keeps the immune system from overexerting itself, allowing it to fight against other things that may be effecting it on a regular basis.

The high magnesium levels in Brazil nuts efficiently promote nutrient uptake, namely through the digestive system. Most importantly it helps the body to absorb Zinc. Zinc is one of the more difficult nutrients for the body to obtain on a regular basis. Eating Brazil nuts before an especially nutritious full meal will help your body absorb the most possible nutrients from it.
