Cashews are high in iron which contributes to the normal function of the immune system. Your immune system defends your body against infectious organisms and other invaders such as viruses and bacteria which can damage your health. In addition, their high vitamin K content may also contribute to normal blood clotting and healthy bones.
Not only that but cashews are also high in minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, manganese and copper. Also, they are a source of fiber, thiamin, pantothenic acid and minerals like potassium and selenium.
Cashews also provide fewer calories than once thought. Their rich fiber and protein content can help reduce hunger and increase feeling full. Put together, all of these factors may help you lose excess weight.
