Native to Iran and Afghanistan, Cashew Nuts are imported to the Pakistani market as they are not grown in Pakistan. More recently, they have become famous throughout the world for their delicate flavor and exceptional health benefits.
They can be used as a snack or as an addition to salads, smoothies, stir-fries, and other meals. With each serving of Cashews, you harness incredible health benefits that set them apart from other nuts.
Benefits of Cashew Nuts
- Heart Healthy Fatty Acids
Not all fatty acids are bad for you; some types of fat can help your heart health. Cashews (Kaju) contain heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, including oleic and palmitoleic acids. These are essential fatty acids associated with lower levels of unhealthy LDL cholesterol and higher levels of healthy HDL cholesterol. As a result, consumption of monounsaturated fats in cashews is linked to decreased cardiovascular disease risk.
- Rich in Protein
Like all nuts, cashews (Kaju) provide an excellent source of protein. Protein is one of three macronutrients your body uses for energy, and it is vital for rebuilding muscle tissue and creating new cellular compounds. Plus, eating protein prevents you from getting an empty stomach between meals, which can help you stick to a healthy eating plan.
- Suitable for the Immune system
In addition to containing high amounts of copper, cashews (Kaju) are a great source of zinc (WH Foods). Failing to get enough zinc compromises your immune system functioning since this mineral is essential for developing immune system cells, producing antioxidant enzymes, and activity of immune system regulators.
- Zero Cholesterol
Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like compound that accumulates in the blood, leading to plaque limiting cardiovascular functioning. Eluding cholesterol in your food can be a healthy choice that helps optimal blood circulation. Cashews contain no cholesterol, making them an extraordinarily heart-healthy choice.
