Western Health Description

Western Health: very nutrient dense, full of vitamins A, C and D. They have a high concentration of monounsaturated fat, which paves the way for a healthy cardiovascular system helping to lower LDL "bad cholesterol" and increase HDL or "good cholesterol" They also contain pinolenic acid which has been shown in recent studies to curb the appetite by triggering the hunger suppressant enzyme CCK which sends signals to the brain that you are full giving you a feeling of satisfaction. Along with high protein and fat levels, pine nuts are also filled with amino acids, making them a great source of nutrition. Pignoli (European pine nuts ) and pifiions (American) are an excellent source of vitamins B1 and B3, manganese, copper, magnesium, molybdenum. They are a very good source of zinc. They are a good source of vitamin B2, vitamin E, and potassium. Pifions are a better source of vitamin B1, and pignoli a better source of iron.
