Details

These delectable seeds grow wild in the Himalayan Mountain ranges of north-western and north-central Afghanistan. Each pine cone can produce over 100 seeds, cylindrical in shape and 2 to 3 centimeters long, with a dark brown outer skin which has to be removed before eating.  Keeping the outer skin on until they are ready for eating prevents the seeds from becoming rancid without refrigeration.
  • They are nature's only natural source of pinoleic acid, which stimulates hormones and helps diminish the appetite
  • Pine nuts have the highest concentration of oleic acid which aids the liver, kidneys and bladder in eliminating harmful triglycerides from the body
  • They contain significant levels of arginine which, along with potassium and magnesium make them heart healthy.
  • They contain 13.69g of protein per 100g of pine nuts, 3.7g dietary fibre, and 3 mg of iron per one ounce serving.
Pine nuts contain such minerals as phosphorus, iodine, manganese, copper, zinc and cobalt as well as essential amino acids and a long list of antioxidants from Vitamin A to E and lutein which acts as mega-vitamins and help protect cells from free radical damage These delicious nuts provide high levels of Vitamin K which is important for blood clotting and bone health as well as helping to relieve menstrual cramps and improve blood circulation.  Pine nuts improve the body’s ability to absorb calcium thereby building stronger bones and teeth.
