Brazil nuts are one of the most sought-after nuts around. They are famous both for their taste and immense nutritional benefits. A fun fact: they are a fruit seed rather than an actual nut! Yet, eating Brazil nuts as part of your diet offers countless health benefits. This is due to their high levels of vitamins and minerals. The most notable nutrient is selenium.
Selenium is a mineral that is very depleted in our soils. Any food that is grown in the ground will be naturally very low in selenium. As an unfortunate result, it is quite often lacking in our diets. Luckily, Brazil nuts are one of the best sources of natural selenium on the planet.
The Nut Market's Brazil nuts are some of the highest-quality worldwide. And yes, they are brimming with natural selenium. They have been associated with many health benefits.
