Go Nuts For Nutrition
Just a few Brazil nuts can give you all the selenium you need in a day
If you are looking for a healthy snack option in your diet, go nutty. Packed with nutrients, snacking on nuts daily can reduce the risk of diabetes and heart disease and lower cholesterol.
Brazil nuts, edible seeds from the Brazil nut tree, are rich in selenium, a mineral essential for proper thyroid and immune function. These nuts are also a good source of magnesium, zinc, calcium and vitamin B. Just a few Brazil nuts can give you all the selenium you need in a day.
The only word of caution—you should limit portions to check excess calorie intake.
