Benefits of Cashews and Almonds:

The copper and iron in cashews helps the body form and utilize red blood cells which in turn keeps blood vessels, nerves, immune system, and bones healthy and functioning properly.

Cashews contain high levels of lutein and zeaxanthin, which act as antioxidants that protect the eyes from light damage, and can even help decrease the instance of cataracts.

Consuming almonds increases vitamin E levels in the plasma and red blood cells, and also lowers cholesterol levels.
