Almonds are high in fibre, protein and vitamin E along with several other important micronutrients. Studies have shown that increasing almond intake helped improve insulin sensitivity and reduced cholesterol in adults with a condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal. Almonds may also increase beneficial HDL cholesterol, enhance memory function and even protect against major health issues. They really are still the Number 1 Nut on Earth. Brazil Nuts are one of the healthiest nuts on the planet. They are especially high in Selenium an important mineral with antioxidant activities that helps fight against harmful free radicals to prevent cell damage. They are simply chock-full of health benefits and delicious. If you've been round the site you'll see we actually put the Sandalwood Nut as the No.1 Nut, you can purchase them separately, they simply are too unqiue to be mixed in with this Nut-Multi and would drive the price up too much. 

Hazelnuts are a great source of manganese and copper as well as many other essential micronutrients. They are one of the healthiest nuts when it comes to reducing the risk of heart issues. Studies show that eating Hazelnuts even helps boost Vitamin E concentrations in the blood. They are rich in antioxidants (compounds that protect against oxidation of cells) reducing the cell damage from free radicals, they're also really nice and easy to munch on. Walnuts can provide a good amount of protein as well as some manganese, copper and magnesium. Walnuts are also an excellent source of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids, which can slash inflammation and decrease the risk of ailments. They also are seen to improve brain function and general health, we wonder if there is any connection here as they look like a brain themselves...

Walnuts Give

The omega-3 fats in Walnuts support Longevity and prevent age-related disorders. Higher levels of omega-3’s can reduce the risk of cognitive impairments. Research has shown that the health benefits of walnuts include enhanced neurotransmitter function and protection against damage in the brain. Studies suggest that walnuts and other omega-3 foods may work as a natural cognitive health solution. The Omega-3 benefits also include the ability to work as a natural remedy for depression. Essential fatty acids are used to aid in neurotransmitter function. Research has shown that low levels of omega-3 fats can contribute to depression, as well as behavioural and cognitive disorders. Omega-3’s play a crucial role in allowing the movement of neurotransmitters in the brain that promote good feelings, such as dopamine and serotonin.

Studies have shown a link between Walnut consumption and omega-3 levels and improved heart health. Healthy fats work to keep the arteries clear, improve circulation, lower inflammation and balance cholesterol levels. Research has shown that Walnut consumption can lead to lower blood pressure, better insulin control and improved heart health. Walnuts contain calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. These nutrients play an important role in developing a healthy brain and body. Manganese specifically supports reproductive health, wound healing, and brain development. Also the fatty acids in Walnuts can help burn belly fat and give the metabolism a natural boost.

Pure Raw Hazelnuts

Hazelnuts Give

Hazelnuts are a good source of dietary fibre. Eating plenty of fibre encourages regular bowel movements and helps prevent the condition of stools that become difficult to pass. Hazelnuts contain the antioxidant Vitamin E. Research suggests that Vitamin E may help shield the body from types of cell damage. A 2013 study found that a Hazelnut-rich diet decreased participants’ levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. This type of cholesterol can increase the risk of heart problems. The researchers concluded that the best way to reap Hazelnuts’ health benefits was to eat them every day, without increasing a person’s overall calorie intake. Results of a 2016 review likewise indicated that Hazelnuts could reduce levels of harmful cholesterol. The researchers also noted no increase in participants’ body weight. This may alleviate some concerns that eating the calorie-dense nuts could lead to weight gain.

Eating a nut mix that includes Hazelnuts may help improve insulin sensitivity. A small 2011 trial found that eating a 30-g nut mix that contained 7.5 g of Hazelnuts every day improved participants’ insulin sensitivity over 12 weeks. Diminished insulin sensitivity plays a role in the development of type 2 diabetes. Improving this sensitivity reduces the risk of the condition. A 2013 study found that eating a Hazelnut-rich diet may improve cardiovascular risk biomarkers, potentially lowering the risk of heart problems. Eating Hazelnuts may help to ease inflammation. A study found that eating a Hazelnut-rich diet reduced signs of inflammation among participants. Some other recent research indicates that consuming more nuts, including Hazelnuts, may increase sperm count and improve the sperms’ quality. The researchers emphasise that this small study involved healthy, fertile participants. More research is necessary to determine whether the benefits apply to the broader population.

Pure Raw Brazil Nuts

Two Brazil Nuts daily is enough to fulfil your Selenium needs, unless perhaps you really need to play catch up. Brazil Nuts really are the No.1 food source for selenium. The selenium found in the Brazil Nut is also anti-inflammatory. Selenium defends against free radical damage, as well. A 2012 study examined Brazil Nuts health benefits regarding this area. They found that just one Brazil Nut per day can help improve anti-inflammatory and antioxidant responses in the body. In fact, participants in the study saw improvements not only with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant responses, but also with cholesterol levels. Brazil Nuts, Almonds and Walnuts (all included in the mix) improve serotonin levels. Serotonin also plays a role in mood and metal well-being. Researchers from the University of Barcelona found that people had higher levels of serotonin after consuming 3 of the Big 4 in Nuts.

Brazil Nuts benefits extend to our heart, in small amounts Brazil Nuts can positively affect your heart. The selenium, potassium, calcium and magnesium present in this food are all helpful in maintaining a healthy blood pressure. They’re also high in unsaturated fats which are good for boosting HDL cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol. Brazil Nuts with its powerful Selenium content are effective in treating issues with the thyroid, as well. In fact, numerous studies show a link between thyroid metabolism and selenium deficiency. Selenium helps your thyroid produce active hormones, improving the overall health of your thyroid. Furthermore, a 2015 Brazilian study found that people with reduced levels of the thyroid hormone T3 were able to increase their selenium with the Brazil Nut leading to improvements in their thyroid hormone levels.

It protects it, for example, but it also regulates reactive oxygen within the gland as well as protects the body from antibodies that can create thyroid issues.

Pure Raw Almonds

Almonds Give

At Ancient Purity we love to save the best till last... Almonds really are the Number 1 Nut. Two of the key components of Almonds are healthy monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) and antioxidants which both support heart health. Almond skins contain antioxidant flavonoids, which are plant-based compounds that work with Vitamin E to improve the health of your arteries as well as reduce inflammation. Studies show, Almonds have effect by lowering LDL, or the bad cholesterol levels. Additionally, Almond health benefits include a long list of nutrients, such as arginine, magnesium, copper, manganese, calcium and potassium, all of which promote heart health. These amazing nuts support the prevention of artery wall damage as well as protection against plaque build-up. Almonds are considered by some to be one of the best brain foods. They contain riboflavin and L-carnitine, two key nutrients that are capable of promoting neurological activity. Furthermore, these nutrients can help prevent cognitive decline. The elderly are encouraged to eat nuts several times per week to help prevent cognitive decline. The health benefits extend to our skin, Almonds are a great source of vitamin E and other antioxidants that nourish thirsty, dry skin and reduce signs of ageing. In fact, research shows that almonds contain high amounts of compounds that fight skin issues as well as damage brought on by such factors as poor diet, pollution, and UV light exposure.

Almond Nuts also have the ability to help heal wounds. This occurs due to the healthy fats Almonds contain, as well as their ability to improve circulation. Almonds are rich in MUFAs, which helps slow the rate at which glucose, or sugar, is released into the bloodstream. In this way, Almond health benefits also extend to blood sugar balance. Almonds are a good source of healthy fats, the nutrients in Almonds may also help regulate digestive enzymes that are involved in nutrient distraction. Our body needs enough fat in order to absorb certain nutrients, such as vitamins A and D. This super Nut contains probiotic components that help with digestion, detoxification and healthy bacterial growth with the gut flora. This is key to your body using nutrients from the food you feed it. One study from 2014 found that women who ate a daily dose of 56g of Almonds over an 8-week period saw significant increases in the populations of healthy bacteria. Almond nutrition also includes trace minerals, such as magnesium and phosphorus. These nutrients are crucial for building and maintaining strong teeth and bones. Almonds can help prevent tooth decay, fight cavities, lower the risk for bone fractures, and fight bone issues.

Nutritional powerhouses, Brazil Nuts provide minerals, vitamins, healthy fats and antioxidants. They are especially rich in selenium which in turn decreases serotonin levels (a feel-good endorphin). Selenium is a pivotal mineral with powerful antioxidant properties as well. Selenium deficiency can cause hormonal imbalances that can negatively affect sleep, mood, concentration, and metabolism. Consuming some Brazil Nuts daily might reduce inflammation, promote cognitive health, enhance thyroid function and support a healthy heart. Just 2 or 3 of these nuts will give you the boost you might need. Given their impressive nutritional profile, it is no surprise that Brazil Nuts have become so popular. Extremely high in antioxidants, Walnuts are also brimming with heart-healthy fats. What's more, daily consuming Walnuts might enhance brain health (cognitive decline) and reduce your risk of heart conditions and the creation of malicious cells. Walnuts can be easily incorporated into your healthy diet, as the nuts can be snacked on their own or added to a wide range of dishes and/or beverages.
