FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Coconuts are one of natures ‘wonder-foods’ that have multiple health benefits…they may even save your life!
The coconut palm has been recognised as a top immune booster, antifungal, antibiotic, antiviral and antibacterial remedy for thousands of years all over the world. To give an example, during WWII they were used extensively in the Pacific. Since blood plasma supplies were scarce, it was very common for medics to siphon pure coconut water from young coconuts to be used as emergency plasma transfusions for soldiers who were injured. Since coconut water is nearly identical to human blood, it was suitable for people of all blood types.
Because of its strong anti-oxidant properties and health benefits, coconuts can be used to:
Ward off wrinkles
Stabilize glucose levels
Fight off viruses
Increase thyroid production
Stave off memory loss
Hazelnuts come from the tree of the same name and are most commonly produced in Turkey. They also have many health benefits;
Hazelnuts are rich in unsaturated fats, the kind that are actually good for the heart. One cup of hazelnuts contains almost half of our recommended daily amount of magnesium, a mineral that regulates calcium levels in muscles. When calcium levels are high the heart may contract, and beat irregularly. Proper amounts of magnesium keep the heart from overexerting itself by promoting healthy rests between contractions.
Studies have also found that the manganese so abundant in hazelnuts goes a long way in protecting the body from cancer. Manganese is a constituent of an antioxidant enzyme produced in the mitochondria of the cells to protect the body from cancer.
Additionally one cup of hazelnuts contains 86% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin E. Vitamin E has been proven to protect skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation, such as skin cancer and premature aging.
The pistachio is from Western Asia but it is mostly also available in the Mediterranean region. Pistachios, much like coconuts and hazelnuts, have untold health benefits;
Pistachios help in reducing bad cholesterol, LDL and increases good cholesterol, HDL in the body thus preventing heart diseases. It also increases strength of the nerves making heart stronger. 60% of the daily required phosphorous is present in a cup of pistachios which can prevent even type-2 diabetes. Also phosphorous in pistachios helps in breaking down proteins into amino acids resulting in glucose tolerance.
Vitamin B6, that is present in high quantity in pistachios helps in increasing the haemoglobin count in the blood. This oxygen rich blood is then supplied to the brain making it even more active. It also is very important for a healthy immune system. This helps in building blood and proper blood supply throughout the body.
Being a rich source of vitamin E, a fat soluble antioxidant, Pistachios play a vital role in maintaining hale and hearty skin. They protect your skin from sun damage, thereby reducing the odds of skin cancer and sunburns. Similar to skin, pistachios have much to offer for hair care as well.
Mixed Nut Turkish Delight is fast becoming a very popular choice. If you like mixed nuts you will readily fall for the taste of this Delight.
