The Simplest Brazil Nut Milk

Originally posted on

Brazil nuts are the best source of selenium in the world; just one single kernel provides 100% of the daily recommendation! Due to the rich source of this mineral, these nutritious nuts are very beneficial for thyroid function. They have also been shown to fight inflammation, combat cancer, positively affect mood, and improve heart health. However, the amount of Brazil nuts consumed should be in small amounts since they are so rich in selenium and this can cause a selenium toxicity. Pay special attention if making Brazil nut milk and use sparingly when adding to coffee, tea, and smoothies.
