Nuts are good for your heart because they are full of “right” fats, protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. However, pecan stands out from the crowd, as it contains more fiber than any other nut: 10% of its total weight is fiber. In addition, the carbohydrate content is also the lowest. It is also a rich source of thiamine, zinc, copper and manganese. It also contains micronutrients known as phytonutrients, which have been shown to reduce inflammation. Pecans, as well as walnuts in general, can help you maintain an ideal weight. Due to its high fat content, it helps to feel full. If you eat them as a snack or add them to your salad or porridge, it can help you feel fuller for longer, so you can eat less overall. The caloric content of pecans is relatively high, so despite its beneficial properties, it is worth paying attention not to eat more than a dozen of them at once.
