Did you know that adding just 2-3 brazil nuts into your daily smoothie can help prevent the formation of small tumors?
They’re a powerful cancer-fighting food. Especially for men, since small tumors often materialize in the form of prostate cancer. Eating (or drinking) your daily brazil nuts is a great form of prevention.
Not surprisingly, getting your selenium in the form of real food rather than a supplement is actually more effective. Research has shown that it doesn’t take much to get the right levels of selenium in your diet. Even one brazil nut a day can do the trick, but since sizes of the nuts vary, and potency can also vary, we usually throw a couple of extra brazil nuts into our smoothies every morning.
And btw, if you’re not crazy about the flavour of brazil nuts, you won’t even taste them in your green smoothie, but they do add a nice creamy texture. I add them to all of my favourite smoothie recipes and never even notice that they’re there.
They might not be as popular as the cashew or the almond, but brazil nuts are a rich source of selenium, and selenium is a serious cancer-fighter that you don’t want to miss out on.
Do you have any great recipes that include brazil nuts? I’d love to hear about them!
