Pine nuts are rich in vitamins, minerals, fibres and plant-based proteins with a high arginine content, which is useful to prevent arteriosclerosis. They act as a real food supplement to be used especially when the energy level in our body gets lower. They are highly recommended to people who are forced to study tiresomely a very long time or to the people who undergo great physical stress because of intense physical activity.
Pine nuts contain unsaturated fatty acids, which help reduce the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides and improve the nervous system functions. Pine nuts also provide vitamin B1, folic acid, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium and iron. Thanks to their healthy features, pine nuts are also recommended during pregnancy and during the phases of growth.
