Health Benefits Of Nuts & Wasabi

While nuts are not necessarily a “health food” due to their high caloric content, caused by the oil they contain, they are a nutritious and a heart-healthy food. The fats in nuts are heart-healthy fats. In 2003, the FDA approved the following claim for seven different types of nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, pecans, some pine nuts, pistachios and walnuts):

“Scientific evidence suggests but does not prove that eating 1.5 oz per day of most nuts as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.”

The key is to limit your intake to one to two ounces of nuts per day.

Genuine wasabi has health benefits as well. It contains isothiocyanates (ICTs) that assist in liver detoxification. It’s rich in beta carotenes and glucosinolates. It’s antibacterial, anti-mucosal and kills certain forms of E. coli. And it contains antioxidants with anti-carcinogenic properties and aids digestion.

Wasabi japonica. The root of the plant, shown above, is consumed.

After your first taste of Real Wasabi nuts, your palate will be dancing. One ounce may even seem like a satisfying portion.
