Try for yoga and meditation. It will help you from physical and mental stress and will improve your over all health. Avoid taking stress because though you are not helped in any way but stress will deteriorate your mental stress. So chill down, have increased water intake and take fresh fruits daily.

Did You Know Cashewnuts Save You from Most Ailments?

Health benefits of Cashew

Cashew nuts or cajus as we know them in India are widely loved and used in almost every course of food, from starters and snacks to the main course to dessert. Apart from being a delectable food, it also has numerous health benefits. Few of them are:

1. When compared to other nuts, they contain low fat content which is in the form of oleic acid. Oleic acid is good for the heart. Cashews also happen to be free of cholesterol and have anti-oxidants which help keep the heart healthy.

2. Magnesium present in the cashews helps them to prevent the rise in blood pressure.

3. One major benefit of cashew nuts is that they help fight cancer. They have high copper content and also have flavonoids called proanthocyanidins which help fight cancer cells in colon cancer.

4. The copper in cashews helps in maintaining the right color of the hair.

5. Cashews have magnesium and calcium, both of which are important for bone health.

6. The magnesium in cashews ensures that there is enough magnesium on the bones' surface and calcium cannot enter the nerve cells, thus ensuring healthy nerves.

7. Cashews have selenium, magnesium, and copper which all act as antioxidants.

8. They help in growth, digestion, and development of the body.

9. Despite being considered fatty, cashews have good cholesterol. Despite popular belief, it is good to eat cashew at least once or twice a week.

10. The risk of developing gallstones reduces by one-fourth, with a daily intake of cashew nuts.

General Physician,
Having protein x like supplements are good?
Nothing is better than natural food which is both cost effective and sustainable. You can use supplements if you are training for some event or for a transient period. Otherwise natural sources of protein like egg white or chicken is better. If you are vegetarian, soya beans have more protein concentration than chicken!
