I have always loved eating dried nuts such as walnuts, almonds, cashews and others. As for its healing properties, nuts not only help the body in the proper performance of its functions but also to prevent and relieve certain ailments.
Healing properties of dried fruits you can benefit from
Nuts, for example, are considered as a source of phytoestrogens which reduces the menopausal effects primarily hot flashes that women go through at this stage.Also contain phytosterols, substances that are similar to cholesterol but are of plant origin and that help lower cholesterol levels in blood that provides a cardiovascular benefit.
In Latin America we have the cashew seed, a nut that in addition to its content of fatty acids, also contains minerals, phosphorus, potassium, zinc and magnesium. Its consumption facilitates the absorption of calcium and therefore is highly appreciated by people who suffer from osteoporosis.
Almond is a good ally against constipation because it is the dried fruit that more fiber contains. Furthermore, due to its monounsaturated fatty acids lowers bad cholesterol which benefits people with heart conditions.
