Pine Nut – very beneficial for Nervous system, Depression, Heart, Arteries and Anemia

Being very expensive and therefore not so available on the market, Pine Nut is rarely included in our diet. Yet, it’s nutritive value is priceless. The Essential Fatty Acids (like Pinolenic acid for example) in their composition, contribute to the health of our Heart and the Arteries, while at the same time lower the Cholesterol level.

These Fatty Acids are not alone in protecting our Heart. While they help in reducing the risk of Heart disease, there are also the Essential Fatty Acids and the Vitamin B1 that help us fight Depression and Stress on one hand, and stimulate our mind activities on the other.

Not less important is the content of Proteins and Minerals – Iron form example. We know Iron’s presence is necessary for preventing Anemia. Consuming Pine Nuts is good for our Brain and while it suppresses the appetite, it also boosts our energy.
