Nuts Are Rich In...

Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which can reduce blood cholesterol, especially when substituted for foods rich in saturated fat, such as meat or cheese.

Folic acid and other B vitamins, which may reduce the risk of heart disease.

Vitamin E, known to be cardioprotective. Almonds and hazelnuts have more vitamin E than other nuts do.

Copper, potassium, and magnesium—all three are linked to heart health.
