Due to their high levels of Selenium and the fact that they contain Ellagic acid, Brazil nuts play a huge role in reducing inflammation in the body, keep your thyroid healthy and also fight cancer!
Their high fiber, unsaturated fats, antioxidants and phytonutrients make them beneficial to heart health in proper doses.
"It’s best to eat Brazil nuts raw or blanched, although they can be roasted and salted like most nuts. Brazil nuts can also be sweetened and crushed for dessert toppings or even made into puddings, dips and cheeses.
Brazil nut milk is a highly nutritious and tasty alternative to almond, soy or regular dairy milk. However, it should only be used in small amounts or on occasion so you don’t overdo it in the selenium department."
