Prevent cancer: Cashews contain proanthocyanidins. Proanthocyanidins have been shown to be flavonoids that can stop the growth of cancer cells and kill them. In fact, studies have shown that the high copper content in this food helps stave off free radicals and provides a source of beneficial phytochemicals and antioxidants for the body. 

Nourishes Hair and Skin: Cashews are rich in copper, an important component of tyrosinase. This enzyme helps convert tyrosine into melanin. Melanin produces pigments in the skin and hair. 

 Good for the heart: Cashews are rich in acids. This monounsaturated fat promotes heart health and lowers triglyceride levels. In addition, the magnesium in cashews helps to lower blood pressure and prevent heart attacks. Coronary and cardiovascular disease can be minimized by eating cashews regularly as this product does not contain cholesterol and antioxidants.  

 Good for Bone Health: Cashews also contain an additional mineral, magnesium, which, in combination with calcium, helps rebuild bone composition. In addition, the copper in cashews gives flexibility to bones and joints.  

Good for nerves: Magnesium, the active ingredient in cashews, is not only good for bones but also good for the nervous system and muscles. Magnesium relaxes and restores blood vessels and muscles by slowing the flow of calcium to nerve cells. This study shows that magnesium helps reduce the frequency of migraine attacks, lower blood pressure and prevent dangerous heart attacks. On the other hand, lack of magnesium in the body can cause high blood pressure, muscle tension and fatigue.  

Improve brain function: Studies show that cashews can increase the amount of oxygen supplied to the brain. It plays an important role in improving memory. This is because the unsaturated fats in cashews affect the production of brain cells.  

Weight loss: People who eat cashews twice a week tend to avoid obesity. About 75% of the fat in cashews is unsaturated fatty acids, so it is very good for your health.
