Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are popular for weight loss. They reduce food cravings by preventing some of your food from getting absorbed into your system. They can also help your diet by making you feel full since they absorb 10 times their weight in water, forming a bulky gel. They are the richest plant source of Omega-3 and can help reduce your blood pressure.

Flax Seeds

To get the health benefits, you’ll either have to chop or grind whole flax seed. Only grind what you need, as flax seed tends to spoil quickly once it’s ground.  A serving of flax seed definitely pulls its weight nutritionally though. It’s a good source of protein and fiber, plus contains plenty of heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, and brain-boosting vitamin B1.

Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds are high in protein, phosphorous and iron. Salted roasted pumpkin seeds are great in salads or just for snacking. They offer a high-protein snack that is ideal to grab for post-workout. Pumpkin seeds are also a good source of dietary fiber to support a healthy digestive system and offer 15% of the recommended daily value for iron.

Sesame Seeds

Sesame seeds are extremely beneficial for health as they include the ability to prevent diabetes, lower blood pressure, build strong bones, increase heart health, help with sleep disorders, improve digestion, reduce inflammation, boost respiratory health, strengthen oral health, improve circulation and detoxify the body.

Sunflower Seeds

Snacking on protein-rich sunflower seeds can help lower your blood pressure. They are also a good source of Vitamin E which promotes healthy circulation by helping you make red blood cells. Vitamin B-1, or thiamine, activates enzymes within your cells, helping you derive energy from food. Sunflower seeds are also a good source of copper which makes melanin, a pigment protein that helps give your skin and hair their color.

Peanuts

As you probably know, the peanut is not actually a nut, but a legume related to beans and lentils. Studies have shown that diets higher in monounsaturated fats from peanuts and peanut butter can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Peanuts are also a good source of protein and have zero cholesterol.

Brazil Nuts

Brazil nuts are considered a complete protein, containing all 9 essential amino acids. This makes them a beneficial addition to vegetarian and vegan diets. Also a rich source of dietary fiber, Brazil nuts make a filling snack that can help with weight control.

Pistachios

A one-ounce serving of pistachios equals 49 nuts — more nuts per serving than any other nut! They also contain more than 10% of the Daily Value for dietary fiber, vitamin B-6, thiamin, phosphorus and copper.

Walnuts

Walnuts are delicious for snacking and make a great addition to baking or cooking.

Research by highly-respected scientific and clinical experts has continued to reveal that walnuts are truly a “Super Food.” Walnuts are loaded with essential Omega-3s that can help reduce the potential for heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and clinical depression. They are also an excellent source of fiber, magnesium, protein, and phosphorus, as well as the antioxidant selenium.

Eating raw walnuts is one of the easiest things a person can do to improve their health.


Cashews

Cashew nuts, like all nuts, are an excellent source of protein and fiber. They are rich in monounsaturated fat which may help protect the heart too. Cashews are also a good source of potassium, a variety of B vitamins and folate. They contain useful amounts of magnesium, phosphorous, selenium and copper.

The uniquely flavorful and creamy taste of a raw macadamia nut is one-of-a-kind. They are perfect for baking and loaded with protein and calcium. Macadamia nut oil contains Omega-3, known to reduce the risk of heart disease and high blood pressure.
