How Can Eating Nuts Benefit Your Health? | Go Nuts For These 9 Nuts

Happilo Premium International Nuts Benefits

Nuts are some of the most nutritious foods out there, packed with protein, healthy fats and antioxidants. Eating a handful of nuts benefit your daily health and it also makes a deliciously easy, healthy snack to eat in between meals and meets.

Reasons why at Happilo, we go nuts for nuts and why you should too:

  • Excellent source of protein: Nuts are some of the best sources of plant-based protein and consuming them regularly can be a delicious and healthy way to boost your daily protein intake. 
  • Rich in antioxidants: Nuts are packed with dietary antioxidants which are known to protect the body from chronic degenerative diseases. Happilo almonds are our bestsellers because of their high content of antioxidants.
  • High in fibre: Just like most of us, you probably aren’t getting enough fibre from your daily diet. It is recommended for women to consume 25gms of fibre while men should aim for 38gms. Fibre is necessary to keep your digestive system healthy and one way of getting more fibre in your diet is by consuming more nuts. 
  • Nuts benefit in weight loss: Don’t be fooled by the high-fat content in nuts. These ‘good fats’ or monounsaturated fats are essential for your body and consuming different kinds of nuts can help keep you full longer, thereby aiding your weight loss journey. 
  • Lowers blood sugar and blood pressure: Consuming healthy fats is a great way to improve heart health and the nutrition of nuts has proven to reduce blood pressure, cholesterol and obesity. 
  • Source of vitamins and minerals: The nutrition of nuts is so high, they can even replace some of your daily vitamin supplements by providing you with magnesium, copper and vitamin E; all essential for your health.

    The most well-known diets for better health and weight loss like ketogenic, palaeolithic, vegan and vegetarian diets rely heavily on nut benefits. For example, cashews can be great milk and dairy replacers for their creamy texture. Happilo cashews are a favourite amongst vegans and vegetarians alike. Aside from the nutrition of nuts, they also make delicious snacks that are versatile and have a long shelf life. You can also use nuts in festive recipes and foods that are usually unhealthy, to give it a nutrient kick. Here are five nuts to include in your festive recipes. However, the nutrition of nuts varies from nut to nut with some being higher in carbohydrates and fats than others. But don’t worry! We’re here to give you a comprehensive list of nuts and their benefits so you make an informed decision the next time you go to the grocery store! You can also check out Happilo for their wide range of premium nuts!
