Contrary to the popular belief that cashew nuts can make you gain fat, a considerable amount of cashews in your diet can provide you with many health benefits.

1. Heart Health

 Cashews help lower LDL and increase the carrying capacity for HDL. HDL absorbs cholesterol from the heart and takes it to the liver where it can be broken down.

2. Prevents Blood Disease

The consumption of cashews on a regular basis and limited manner may help in avoiding blood diseases. 

Cashews contain Zea Xanthin, a pigment directly absorbed by our retina. This then forms a protective layer over our retina which prevents harmful UV rays.
