Brazil nuts, which happen to actually be seeds, grow on one of the largest and longest-lived trees in the Amazon rainforest. They can grow up to 164 ft tall and often live up to 1000 years! A single tree can also produce up to 250 lbs of brazil nuts.
Well known as the best food-source of Selenium, a powerful antioxidant, brazil nuts are also a good source of magnesium, copper and thiamine. Other potential health benefits include: anti-inflammatory, anticancer, mood lifting, lowering cholesterol and supporting thyroid health.
