Brazil nuts have about 2,500 times as much selenium as any other nut. Selenium is a powerful antioxidant which has been proven to protect against heart disease and cancers like prostate cancer.
Brazil nuts’ high selenium content also discourages the ageing process and stimulates the immune system. In a study of patients with early Alzheimer?s disease, antioxidants - including selenium - boosted mood and mental performance. Like all nuts, brazil nuts are an excellent source of protein and fiber.
Brazil nuts are high in minerals including zinc and magnesium, and contain useful amounts of phosphorous, copper and iron.
