What does Superfood mean?
Not just a simple food but one that provides the body with health and wellness. Nuts’ basic characteristics are:
- Their “Diabetic’s Superfood” rating by the American Diabetes Association.
- The quantity of healthy vegetable proteins they contain, that makes them the perfect choice for replacing meat in any diet.
- Their proven beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system and blood lipids.
- The number of essential amino acids and arginine they contain.
Nuts are known to be one of the most reliable sources of amino acid arginine, which is believed to help in maintaining artery slimness, improving blood flow and reducing wound healing time.
- The Busting of the Myth: “Nuts are fattening”.
According to the national nutrition guides for adults: “frequent use of Nuts is impossible to lead to gaining weight. On the contrary it can lead to weight loss”.
