Experts (scientists, doctors, nutritionists and wellness experts) are suggesting from time to time a lot of foods offering huge benefits to body. These can make not only a significant difference in our health but also in our physical and mental condition (body weight, energy and vitality)!!

Eating nuts (always naturally in moderation) is beneficial for EVERY AGE. However, research on the relationship between longevity and nut consumption, as well as the link with the prevention of serious illnesses (such as cardiovascular disease or cancer) is mainly for people aged 50 years or older!

Are nuts a forbidden food for those who take care of their body weight? “
According to the above mentioned study, those who received the daily amount of protein from nuts and seeds and not from meat have shown a significantly lower risk of cardiovascular disease!
It is therefore immediately perceptible that the form of protein consumed is directly related to our health, and – according to this research – plant protein is a preferred form of protein (with significant human health benefits) animal protein!
As we have already mentioned, nuts are an ideal source of beneficial – plant-received protein favouring the body in many ways, including … weight management (and of course, slimming)!

In other words … the result is double, having a lower fatty tissue in the body, by reducing body weight and slimming and also succeeding on ripping!
