Brazil Nuts

Brazil Nuts

Did you know that Brazil Nuts contain selenium?

Selenium helps to form antioxidants in the body to fight radicals which damage cells, leading to aging.

Brazil nuts hold a very high level of selenium, which protects the cells from damage by neutralizing free radicals.

  • Brazil nuts are high in fat, but much of this fat content is monounsaturated fat that helps lower cholesterol.
  • The nuts are also a great source of Vitamin E which is necessary for the integrity of mucosa and skin by protecting it from free radicals.
  • Brazil nuts hold a very high level of selenium. Just 1-2 nuts per day enough of this trace element to help prevent coronary artery disease, liver disease and cancers.
  • Also Brazil nuts are an excellent source of the B-complex group (research). In addition, they hold good levels of copper, magnesium, manganese, potassium, iron, phosphorous and zinc. All good minerals for the health of the body and the skin.
  • Last but not least, selenium protects the cells from damage, by neutralising free radicals and other skin-damaging compounds before they can lead to wrinkles. It is similar to Vit E and actually works with the vitamin to safeguard cell membranes, the protective coating around the cells.

I pop a handful (4-5) a day into my morning smoothie, along with some berries, banana, baby spinach, my Arbonne Greens Balance which promotes good bacteria in the gut, and almond & coconut milk. Great way to start your morning!

If you are allergic to nuts or don’t like them I would recommend a Selenium supplement.  I can highly recommend this product from Aussie Health Products.
