Consume nuts, they help!

Nuts are more of a supplementary diet and are great as snacks


Nuts are a unique form of edibles that contain nutrients and are mostly consumed in raw form. Ironically the word description portrays it as some valueless item, but a glance at nuts around the world establishes that they are quite moderate to expensive products. Almonds, pistachios and walnuts are some of the prime nuts that are worth a cost. 

A variety of dried seeds that are in shells or otherwise are common all around the world, and make for supplementary diet. Byproducts of nuts constitute an industry in themselves, and are of immense importance in pharmaceuticals too. They are hard-walled, kernel and at times soft from inside, ripe with juice and a concentrated flavour special to each nut family. They are an indispensable source of energy stimulation for humans, and is considered as great fodder for wildlife. 

Nuts, impromptu termed as seeds, are extracted for cooking oil, raw food products, and lentils. Pulses are another form of nuts, forming a staple diet for millions around the world. The fact is that nuts are harvested and grown all over the world, and are temperature specific. Nuts that are cultivated in colder regions have immense oil and carbohydrate byproducts, and is valued as a perfect nutrient. Nuts contain a large quantity of calories, fats, edible acids that are good for the liver and digestive system. Several vitamins are also extracted from nuts, and many of them make for a great supplement.

From a health perspective, nuts are recommended diet. Nuts help in reducing the chances of heart diseases, stroke and even cancer. Research proves it is a good intake to control diabetes. Walnuts and almonds are known for boosting memory. The lipoprotein density of nuts vary, and some of the nuts could be harmful if consumed in either raw form or with a misbalance. Eating unlimited amounts of nuts could lead to weight gain, cholesterol and at times intestinal disorders. Weight can also be reduced through some kinds of nuts. 

Its intake per day should not be more than a few grammes. Almonds, pistachios, and walnuts contain "good" fats, and help increase high-density lipoprotein. Nonetheless, the craze for nuts has no boundaries, as they come with a distinct flavour and aroma. But doctors still recommend nuts as a supplement as well as a normal diet because they contain high levels of fibre, polyunsaturated fats and magnesium, which is vital for hormonal balance. Nuts will always be a preferred choice as they make for great snack food, and easy to consume and carry.
