A healthy immune system can help the body ward off infections and disease, particularly as we age and the immune system weakens. A healthy lifestyle and proper diet have been shown to help improve the immune system. A growing body of research tags nuts as supporting immune system health and protecting the body against disease.
C.J. Dannemiller Co. offers a wide variety of bulk nuts which each contain an array of vitamins and antioxidants. Among other foods that contain high levels of antioxidants, nuts are particularly shelf stable, which makes them a pantry staple and versatile ingredient for consumer recipes or in formulation for food manufacturers.
One of the ways that nuts can aid the immune system is through their antioxidant content. While the body produces its own cohort of antioxidants, experts agree a proper diet rich in antioxidants can neutralize free radicals that cause oxidative stress and thereby reduce the incidence of chronic diseases such as heart disease, type-2 diabetes or cancer.
Among nut varieties, walnuts contain “massive amounts of antioxidants.”1 Other nuts named as containing high or significant levels of total antioxidants include: pecans, peanuts, pistachios (all listed as rich sources); and hazelnuts, almonds, brazil nuts, macadamias and cashews (listed as significant sources).
Nuts are generally a great source of zinc. Among nut varieties, as one example, almonds have been extensively researched and supply numerous health benefits. They are rich in antioxidants and one of the world’s best or most concentrated sources of vitamin E2, with several studies linking higher vitamin E intake with lowered risk of heart disease, cancer or Alzheimer’s. Almonds also are high in iron and protein and a good source of healthy fat.
