The Benefits of Eating Nuts

The Benefits of Eating Nuts

Nuts may be one of the best sources of Essential Fats, but there is more to to it than that.  In this article, I will explain some benefits of eating nuts and how Dale’s Raw Foods uses them in our products. 


First of all, nuts are a great source of essential fats. All fats, including saturated fatty acids, have important roles in the body. However, the most important fats are those that the body cannot make and thus must come from the food we eat. These essential fatty acids (EFAs) are based on linoleic acid (omega-6 group) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3 group). We need both groups of essential fatty acids to survive. (1)

Secondly, there are many health benefits to nuts that indicate the importance of nuts on our diet. (2)

  1. Nuts are great source of fats, protein, and fiber. 
  2. Nuts are loaded with Antioxidants.
  3. Nuts can help you lose weight.
  4. Nuts can lower cholesterol and triglycerides. 
  5. Nuts are beneficial for Type 2 Diabetics. 
  6. Nuts can help reduce inflammation.
  7. Nuts can reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.

    "Although we know that benefits of nuts, we also are aware that many people have allergies to certain tree nuts. Therefore, we have committed to creating a nut free bar in 2019 using a base of Sunflower Butter."
