Food for Thought: Hazelnuts
By chitchatchomp on September 02, 2014
Did you know that the Hazelnut is rich in unsaturated fats, you know the kind of fat that is actually good for the heart? Much of this fat is called oleic acid, which has been shown to lower "bad" cholesterol and raise the "good" kind. They're also packed full of magnesium and vitamin E, which has been proven to protect your skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation, such as skin cancer and premature aging.
This is just the tip of the iceberg!
They contain a huge amount of fibre, ensuring your digestive system is in tip top condition (which we're all grateful for), as well as being high in B vitamins, which are used throughout the body, particularly for the health of our nervous system (including helping with stress, anxiety and depression), as well as improving our memory.
So in basic layman terms, you simply can't go wrong enjoying this little tart, especially as I've also provided you with a gluten-free AND fructose-free version. Yay me!
