Cashew nuts come from the cashew tree, a native plant to Brazil’s Amazon rain forest. The tree grows a pear-shaped fruit called “cashew apple,” and the cashew nut, which is actually a “true fruit” is found attached to the bottom of the cashew-apple.
Cashews are extremely rich in monosaturated-fatty acids such as oleic and palmitoleic. These essential acids are very “heart-friendly” helping lower the bad LDL-cholesterol and increase the good HDL-cholesterol. A diet containing these acids may help prevent coronary artery disease and strokes.
Cashews are abundant in minerals like manganese, potassium, copper, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium. A handful of these nuts may be enough to prevent deficiency diseases. Zinc, for example, functions as a co-factor for certain enzymes that regulates growth and development, gonadal function, digestion, and DNA synthesis.
According to research, cashews has been linked to cancer prevention, heart health, and weight control.
