Nuts and Seeds: Health Benefits and Nutrients

  1. According to the Wikipedia encyclopedia, a nut is a non-dehiscent, one-seeded, single shell with lignified pericarp. A seed, on the other hand, is the main survival organ in seed plants. Examples of nuts are almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pistachios and walnuts. Favorite seeds include pine nuts, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. Peanuts are basically legumes (like peas or beans), but are called nuts because they have many characteristics similar to tree nuts. Regular consumption of nuts is part of a healthy diet and can protect against heart disease and type 2 diabetes and aid in weight management.
