Health Benefits:

In addition to being delicious, cashew nuts have their own virtues for health.

Naturally zero in cholesterol, rich in heart-healthy fats, protein, dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Cashews are a good source of vitamins B1, B5, and B6, vitamin K, copper, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, iron, selenium, and zinc, and of course with good doses of other essential minerals.

Only a handful of cashews per week already helps to maintain a healthy diet. As with the other nuts, they may help in lowering the risk of cardiovascular diseases due to their content of monounsaturated fatty acids, type 2 diabetes, gallstones in men, and colon cancer in women; and may help in reducing the levels of bad cholesterol.
