The Power of Nuts

 

“25 walnuts have the antioxidant equivalent of 8 grams of vitamin C (the vitamin C found in a hundred oranges).” – Micheal Greger M.D.

Nuts are nutritional badasses because they are the source of a wide range of important nutrients:

  • proteins
  • unsaturated fatty acids
  • B and E vitamins
  • Fiber
  • Minerals such as copper, magnesium, potassium, & zinc
  • antioxidants

Walnuts and pecans are top of the list because they are the best source of disease-fighting antioxidants.
