The Health Benefits of Pecans

Cardiovascular Health
Since pecans have high-fat content (like avocados), they promote stable heart health through unsaturated fats. They contain monounsaturated fats such as oleic acid along with phenolic antioxidants which can reduce the risk of heart disease and strokes. Adding a handful of pecans to your diet can decrease LDL (bad cholesterol) and increase HDL (good cholesterol).

Digestive Health
Pecans are chock-full of fiber which helps promote colon health and facilitates regular bowel movements. Eating pecans can help to prevent constipation and reduce the risk of colitis, colon cancer, and hemorrhoids.

Anti-Inflammatory Benefits
Pecans are rich in magnesium which is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Magnesium intake reduces inflammatory indicators in the body and arterial walls which in turn reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, and other inflammatory ailments.

Anti-Cancer Properties
Pecans are rich in phytochemical substances including polyphenolic antioxidant ellagic acid, vitamin E, beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin. These compounds play an important role in removing toxic oxygen-free radicals, thus protecting your body from diseases, cancer, and infections.

Prevents Skin Problems
Toxins in your body can cause breakouts, dull skin, and excessive oil. Since pecans are an adequate source of fiber, they do wonders for your skin by aiding in the elimination of toxins and waste from the body. Pecans also contain vitamin A and zinc which help achieve a clear complexion and protect against skin infections

Anti-Aging Benefits
Pecans can help prevent signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation thanks to the number antioxidants it contains including ellagic acid, vitamin A and vitamin E. These antioxidants help to fight and eliminate free radicals which are responsible for causing premature skin aging.

Pecans are an excellent source of L-arginine, which when applied topically helps to treat male pattern baldness as well as encourage the growth of healthy hair. L-arginine helps blood flow throughout the body by increasing the flexibility of artery walls making them less prone to blood clots. This increases blood flow to the hair roots which is vital for healthy hair growth and scalp.
