3 good reasons to go nuts

It’s well known that nuts are a healthy go-to source when you want to boost energy fast. Besides being both delicious and nutritious, this easy snack comes with many more benefits.

MAGNESIUM

This valuable mineral helps with blood sugar control and muscle building, just to name a few perks. Almonds, cashews, and Brazil nuts are all among the top 10 food sources of magnesium.

FIGHT HEART DISEASE

Both Walnuts and Almonds are a great way to be kind to your heart. Swap an unhealthy snack for a handful of nuts to raise your levels of HDL, the good cholesterol that helps fight heart disease.

CALCIUM

Keep your bones dense and strong by fueling your body with good minerals. Almonds rank the highest of all the nuts in calcium and provides a good source for your recommended daily intake.

Save the jungles & the coolest apes

The Bobono monkey, our closest living relative, is a sociable, cool and playful lover of life. Female bonobos have the greatest influence on the troop and, smart as they are, they’re also picky about what they put in their mouths. Their natural choice? Well, the Bonobo eat mainly plant-based products, much like this tasty organic and vegan treat. It’s something that all bonobos — and humans — know is great both for your health and the environment. Enjoy!

But all is not nice and dandy. The bonobos and their habitat are under threat. If you have the means, your support would be of great use.
