Brazil Nuts

Did you know brazil nuts are the best source for Selenium?
Selenium is an essential mineral found in small amounts in the body. It works as an antioxidant, especially when combined with vitamin E. Antioxidants like selenium help fight damaging particles in the body known as free radicals
Food sources for Selenium are Brewer’s yeast and wheat germ, liver, butter, fish (mackerel, tuna, halibut, flounder, herring, smelts) and shellfish (oysters, scallops, and lobster), garlic, whole grains, sunflower seeds, and….Brazil Nuts top the list!
Selenium is destroyed when foods are refined or processed so eating a variety of whole, unprocessed foods is the best way to get selenium into our diet and one — yes, just one — Brazil nut per day will fulfill your daily required intake of 55 micrograms as one nut kernel contains 95.8 micrograms…Well over the daily recommendation!
Our goal should always be to consume as many of our vitamins and minerals as possible from whole food sources but please heed the advice that ONE nut per day provides all our needed Selenium.
Elevated Selenium can be harmful so LESS is MORE with this powerful SuperFood!

Blessings!
