Cashews, Depression, & Other Health Disorders

You may have heard that cashews are good for you, but have you heard that they can (along with a balanced diet) help keep depression away? Cashews are not only high in minerals like Copper, Zinc, and Magnesium, but they are also high in vitamins such as Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Vitamin E, Folate, and others.

Niacin and Tryptophan

Two key important nutrients found in cashews are Niacin (B3) and Tryptophan. Niacin and Tryptophan help to stabilize the nervous system, reduce the risk of heart attacks, and prevent anxiety and depression. Two handfuls of cashews have the same therapeutic value as a dose of Prozac…and there is no doubt in my mind that the cashews are better for you. For more information on Niacin and Mental Health, see this web site.
