🌰 Nourish your gut with the power of nuts!
Did you know nuts are powerhouses of NUTrition?
And in comparison to oats they pack a mighty punch 💪 here’s what we discovered 👇
* Protein Content: Nuts are typically higher in protein compared to oats. For example, almonds contain about 21% protein by weight, while oats contain around 13%.
* Healthy Fats: Nuts are rich in healthy unsaturated fats, including monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which are beneficial for heart health. Oats are primarily composed of carbohydrates, with very little fat content.
* Fibre: Both nuts and oats are good sources of dietary fibre but nuts often contain a higher proportion of insoluble fiber, which promotes better digestion. Cashews and almonds also contain prebiotic fibres, which serve as fuel for beneficial gut bacteria, supporting gut health and digestion.
* Micronutrients: Nuts are packed with essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, magnesium, potassium, and zinc, which play important roles in various bodily functions. Oats also provide some vitamins and minerals, but their nutrient profile is not as varied or concentrated as nuts.
* Antioxidants: Many nuts, such as Almonds contain high levels of antioxidants like vitamin E, flavonoids, and phenolic compounds. These antioxidants help combat oxidative stress and inflammation in the body, protecting cells and tissues from damage. While oats do contain antioxidants, the concentration and variety found in nuts are often greater.
