Pecans are the healthiest nut you can find! They are rich in protein and healthy
fats. Research from the USDA confirms that pecans are the most antioxidant-rich nut in existence. Eating a handful of pecans each day can help lower the risk of heart disease, lower cholesterol, and aid in weight loss. Pecans can help reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Eating pecans can also help delay age-related muscle and nerve degeneration. Pecans contain ellagic acid, which is known to directly inhibit the DNA binding of certain carcinogens. They are also a rich source of Vitamin E, selenium, and B-complex vitamins. Nuts are always best eaten raw, as this preserves the highest nutrient content.
