Cashew Power!

That’sFit passes along some great info on cashews. Take a look:
  • Cashews have a lower fat content than most other nuts.
  • About 75 percent of their fat is unsaturated fatty acid, and 75 percent of this fat is oleic acid, the same heart-healthy mono-unsaturated fat found in olive oil.
  • Consuming a handful of cashews four times per week can lower the risk of heart disease.
  • Consuming a handful of cashews at least twice a week helps lower risk of weight gain.
  • Cashews contain copper, good for iron utilization, elimination of free radicals, development of bone and connective tissue, and the production of the skin and hair pigment called melanin.
  • Cashews contain magnesium, good for the bones, muscles, and nerves.
  • Cashews help prevent gallstones.
