Brazil Nuts for Selenium

If you follow me on YouTube you have probably heard me go on about having 2 brazil nuts every single day. The reason is that brazil nuts are the number one source for the super important trace mineral Selenium. Selenium acts like an antioxidant and boosts immunity. Very important to keep healthy.

I soak my nuts overnight to 1. make the minerals, vitamins and enzymes come alive and 2. to remove the nuts “defence” i.e. the phytic acid, making the nutrients in the nut readily available for the body to use.
After I have my nuts soaked overnight I rinse and dry them and they are ready to be eaten. 2 nuts are enough.

Don’t buy Brazil Nuts in bulk as they spoil quite quickly. Stick to smallĀ  bags and store in the fridge.
