Brazil nuts are native to the Amazon rainforest and carry a smooth, buttery texture and nutty flavor. They are a rich source of selenium, a mineral responsible for the proper functioning of the body. Just one or two Brazil Nuts a day can meet your daily selenium requirements and keep your thyroid and immune system working optimally. That’s how amazing they are!
The benefits of consuming Brazil Nuts extend beyond better thyroid and immune systems—while the ellagic acid found in Brazil Nuts positively impacts brain health, its high quantities of healthy fats support heart functioning.
Brazil Nuts are perfect for nut-based preparations such as nut butter, cookies, cakes, ice cream, granola, and smoothies. You can even have Brazil Nuts as a savory snack by sprinkling a little salt over them. Go nuts!
