Nuts are one of the best plant sources of protein. They are rich in fiber, phytonutrients, antioxidants and selenium. Nuts are also high in plant sterols and fat - but mostly monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (omega 3 - the good fats) which have all been shown to lower LDL cholesterol.
Nuts provide magnesium, which helps maintain bone structure; and chromium, which helps to ensure proper insulin function. They contain zinc for growth and wound healing. Nuts contain manganese, which protects against free radicals.
