We have all heard that different types of nuts offer a variety of health benefits, but do you know which ones are the best when it comes to nutrition?

Three-in-Ones

Walnuts have the most omega-3 fatty acids of any nut, making them the best to help prevent heart disease, cancer and premature aging.

PMS-Fighters

Walnuts, peanuts and soy nuts can help relieve PMS symptoms, like irritability and depression, because they contain the mineral manganese.

A Handful Will Do It

A serving size of nuts is typically an ounce, or about one handful. This equals: 14 walnut halves, 16 cashews, 24 almonds and 28 peanuts.
