I’m really loving how people are becoming more health conscious & I’m learning alot myself as I embark It goes to show that even though our foods are being genetically modified, many people are still making conscious decions to go back to Mother Nature & make more holistic choices to care for their bodies from the inside out.
Today, I ran across an article by Consciousness TV on Nuts and It’s Benefits.
The article covred all kinds of nuts from walnuts, almonds, pecans. But butternuts is really what caught my attention. Have you ever heard of those? Butternuts are an endangered member of the walnut family. One ounce of butternuts contains 2.4 g of omega-3. Butternuts, also known as white walnuts, are hard to find and can be expensive. Butternut canker, a fungal disease found throughout the tree’s North American range, has wiped out many native stands of butternut trees in the United States, notes Canada’s Rideau Valley Conservation Authority. If you can find them and are willing to pay, butternuts are an excellent source of ALA omega-3.
What I found interesting is that the karite nut that shea butter is derived from, share some of the similar health properties as their nutty cousins such as containg a rich amount of fatty acid, vitamin A&E. They also look kinda similar too.
Fascinating that by applying shea butter that comes from the shea nut tree gives your skin the same health benefits outwardly that eating regualr nuts give you inwardly!
Isn’t that just nutty?
