The Health Benefits of Nuts
Nuts should be part of a healthy dietary pattern. Here’s why.
Nuts are a source of unsaturated fats and fiber as well as protein. Nuts are a good source of vitamin E and magnesium—which most Americans don’t get enough of—and other essential vitamins and minerals. Nuts also contain a variety of plant chemicals which some research has linked to reduced risk of chronic diseases. In short, nuts deliver a lot of nutrition in a small package.
