The most impor­tant things to know when choos­ing nut blends are:

1. Nuts do not have to be washed, and if you do wash them, be sure to store them in the refrig­er­a­tor. In oth­er cas­es, a sealed bag and any shelf in your kitchen is suit­able for stor­age.

2. 40g is enough for a per­son. nuts every day to replen­ish the sup­ply of pro­teins, vit­a­mins and min­er­als, while the con­tent of nutri­ents in dif­fer­ent nuts is dif­fer­ent:

* cashew — a source of mag­ne­sium, strength­ens the heart and blood ves­sels, the con­di­tion of hair and skin, low­ers cho­les­terol

* hazel­nuts — improves blood lipid com­po­si­tion, low­ers sug­ar lev­els, helps fight obe­si­ty

* almonds — have a ben­e­fi­cial effect on the diges­tive sys­tem and improve the state of microflo­ra, etc.

There­fore, it is rec­om­mend­ed to alter­nate dif­fer­ent vari­eties of nuts or buy spe­cial­ly bal­anced nut mix­tures.

3. Try to choose large nuts — in gen­er­al, this is an indi­ca­tor of qual­i­ty. Cul­ti­va­tion of trees that pro­duce such a crop requires high stan­dards for decades. That is why good nuts can­not be cheap. But peanuts — maybe because it’s not a nut, but a legume

4. Choose unroast­ed nuts. For exam­ple, vit­a­min E is destroyed dur­ing heat treat­ment, and it is a nat­ur­al antiox­i­dant that slows down the aging process and stim­u­lates the syn­the­sis of hemo­glo­bin. To increase the shelf life, raw nuts under­go safe ster­il­iza­tion — use­ful sub­stances are pre­served, and the nuts them­selves do not oxi­dize or become moldy

5. Eat nuts and dried fruits reg­u­lar­ly but in mod­er­a­tion. Nuts are sim­ply shown to elder­ly peo­ple, preg­nant women and those recov­er­ing from ill­ness­es: vit­a­mins in nuts enhance the body’s immune defens­es; unsat­u­rat­ed omega‑3 fat­ty acids will slow down the devel­op­ment of ath­er­o­scle­ro­sis; phos­pho­rus, cal­ci­um, iron, sodi­um, potas­si­um, mag­ne­sium, iodine, cobalt, zinc will help in the fight against stress and nor­mal­ize blood pres­sure, will con­tribute to the nor­mal func­tion­ing of the myocardi­um and thy­roid gland, the for­ma­tion of strong bone tis­sue.

Nuts are per­fect for veg­e­tar­i­an and prop­er nutri­tion, when the lack of ani­mal pro­tein is com­pen­sat­ed with the help of veg­etable
