Pecans are extremely delicious, sweet and caloric. They contain around 70% fats, most of which are the healthy mono- and polyunsaturated fats, which bring great benefits for the health. The unsaturated Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids have a large role in the function of the heart and the vessels’ health, since they increase the levels of the good cholesterol, avoid the clotting and decrease the blood pressure. Omega 3 is very important for the athletes because it helps building the muscles. The pecan is an important source of proteins, antioxidants, dietary fibres, multiple minerals – calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, cuprum, selenium, fluoride, phosphorus, manganese, potassium and zinc. They contain several healthy vitamins from the B-group, such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamine, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6 and folates. Altogether, these vitamins and minerals act as a co-factor to increase the metabolic enzymes in the human body. The regular consumption of the Pecan nuts could relieve depression, increase the self-esteem, improves the brain function and the concentration.
