Best Treatment for Depression: Eating Cashews Will Treat Depression More Effectively Than Medicine

Cashew nuts are one of the healthiest foods on the planet, and they offer a myriad of health benefits!

These nuts grow in hot and humid climates, so the biggest cashew producers in the world include Brazil, Tanzania, Nigeria, and Mozambique.

Yet, note that sometimes, cashew nuts might cause allergies in both, children and adults, just like peanuts.

These are their most important health benefits:

Rich in important nutrients-Cashew nuts are full of essential nutrients such as magnesium, zinc, potassium, copper, selenium, and iron. A handful of these nuts a day provides the needed amount of minerals.

Selenium is an important micronutrient which acts as a co-factor for antioxidant enzymes such as glutathione peroxides, one of the strongest antioxidants. Also, zinc regulates digestion, DNA synthesis, and gonadal function.

High in calories- Cashews are rich in fiber, minerals, vitamins, and phytochemicals, and 50 grams of cashews have 275 calories.

Rich in essential vitamins- 100 grams of cashews provide even 30% of the daily recommended level of B6 which lowers the risk of sideroblastic anemia and homocystinuria.

The vitamins in cashews are essential for the metabolism of fat, protein, and carbs on a cellular level, and Niacin prevents dermatitis or pellagra.

Contains zeaxanthin- This pigment is selectively absorbed inside the retinal macula in the eyes and has potent antioxidant and protective UV ray filtering properties. Therefore, it prevents age-related macular degeneration.

Can treat depression- Cashews are high in tryptophan, an amino acid we consume through food, and is important for our sleep quality, the development and growth of children, mood, behavior, and treats anxiety, depression, and manages stress.

Studies have shown that a handful of cashews is as effective as prescription antidepressants, but does not cause the side effects.

Support heart health- the oleic and palmitoleic acids in cashews support cardiovascular health, as they reduce the levels of bad cholesterol and increase the levels of good cholesterol.
