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?
Walnuts have the most omega-3 fatty acids of any nut, making them the best to help prevent heart disease, cancer and premature aging.
Walnuts, peanuts and soy nuts can help relieve PMS symptoms, like irritability and depression, because they contain the mineral manganese.

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.
