Brazil Nut Spotlight:
Brazil nuts are a large nut that come from a tree grown in many parts of the Amazon besides Brazil. Rich rainforest soils contribute to the wide range of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals found in Brazil nuts. Brazil nuts are a great source of Vitamin E, selenium, and anti-aging antioxidants. Selenium is an important cofactor for antioxidant enzyme, glutathione-peroxidase. Adequate selenium in the diet helps prevent coronary artery disease, liver cirrhosis, and cancers.
