Nuts and Seeds: The Snack That Gives Back

The Superfoods You’re Probably Not Eating Enough Of

They are good sources of protein, healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Eating nuts and seeds on a regular basis may offer a number of health benefits, including:

  • Reduced risk of heart disease: Nuts and seeds contain healthy fats, such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which can help lower LDL cholesterol and raise HDL cholesterol. This can help reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.
