They're heart healthy (eating a small handful daily may improve your cholesterol), but thatís not all these little nuts can do. Some of their benefits:
∑ Almonds: Just ľ of a cup has almost as much calcium as ľ cup of milk. Great for bone building!
∑ Pistachios: Have about 310 mg of potassium (crucial for nerve control and muscle function) per ounce. Thatís more the amount in one half of a large banana.
∑ Walnuts: Are a powerhouse of omega-3s (1/4 cup has 91 percent of the daily requirement), and may boost brain function and lower the risk of inflammatory diseases like arthritis and psoriasis.
Take your pick or eat all three daily for great health!
