Nuts are one of the best plant sources of protein.Nuts are full of protein so they should help build your muscles.They contain oils that are supposedly good for the skin.Most people would agree that nuts are tasty but did you know that they are full of goodness.The fat in nuts is monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat.

Good post , Nuts are one of the best plant sources of protein.
The best approach is to reap the health benefits of eating nuts but not add excessive calories to your daily intake. So instead of simply adding nuts to your diet, eat them in replacement of foods that are high in saturated fats and limit your intake of these tasty treats to 1 to 2 oz per day .

Hi

Walnuts

Walnuts are especially great because they have high levels of omega-3 fatty acids. Other nuts don't.

Omega-3 fatty acids are also found in fatty fish like tuna and salmon. We know that omega-3 fatty acids lower levels of triglycerides, a type of fat in the bloodstream. Experts are not exactly sure how. Omega-3 fatty acids may also slow down the growth of plaques in the arteries and reduce swelling throughout the body.

Almonds

Many studies show that almonds have real health benefits too. Almonds are a good source of protein and are high in antioxidants, magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron as well as vitamin E. Like other nuts, they also provide a good source of monounsaturated fat — the good fat that is needed for heart health.

Thanks

Nuts benefit us in many ways, Nuts are one of the best plant sources of protein, they have lots of protein, fiber, healthy monounsaturated fats, vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants. I think that Nuts are high in protein which makes them a a good choice if you are looking to replace foods that are high in saturated fat.

The nuts are very nutritious, full of the protein, copper, niacin, magnesium, fiber, vitamin E and selenium is included. It is really means more for health. Selenium is a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes harmful free radicals works. Research at the University of Illinois, also a large amount of selenium in Brazil nuts help prevent breast cancer.

This is a great post about the health benefits of nuts - thank you for posting it! I learned some great things I didn't know, and I LOVE nuts. Makes me feel even better about eating them.

One little heads up I would give about the Omega 3 benefits from nuts: the Omega 3s in walnuts, other nuts, and flaxseeds come in a form called alpha linolenic acid (ALA), which your body has to convert to EPA and DHA Omega 3 fats (the two kinds found in fish oil, and the only types our bodies actually use). Apparently our bodies convert very little of the ALA to EPA and DHA (I'm talking 5% or less). So while the walnuts do provide Omega 3 fats, it is very minimal in terms of benefit to our bodies. I actually wrote an article on this very topic on my healthy eating blog several months ago (with flaxseeds in place of nuts). Just throwing this out there because I think a lot of people just don't know they likely aren't getting a lot of Omega 3 benefits from flaxseeds and nuts (plant based foods) in the end.

Still, that's not a bad thing by any means, and you've gotta love the multitude of health benefits in nuts! As I said, I eat them very often. So I have a question: Has anyone gained undesired weight or fat solely from eating nuts? I will often eat far more than 2 oz per day (what some people recommend limiting your intake of nuts to since they do contain fat). I've never gained weight or fat when I've increased my intake. I know everyone's different, so I wanted to ask. For me, when it comes to how many nuts to eat, I have the attitude of "go nuts" - literally!
