Cashew nuts are known as "Kaju" in India and are grown in Kerela, Goa and southern coastal parts of India.
The cashew tree is a tropical evergreen that produces the cashew nut and the cashew apple. The cashew nut is served as a snack or used in recipes, like other nuts, although it is actually a seed. The cashew apple is a fruit, whose pulp can be processed into a sweet, astringent fruit drink or distilled into liqueur.
Cashews contain low-fat content when compared to other nuts and that too in the oleic acid form which is very healthy for the heart. They are cholesterol free and the antioxidants present keeps you away from heart diseases.
Cashew nuts lower your blood pressure with the help of magnesium present in them.
Copper is the mineral which helps your hair get that color. So if you take cashews which are full of copper content, you can get that black hair that you always wished for.
Like calcium, magnesium is also important for bone health which is the main content in cashew nuts.
Magnesium is stored on the bones surface which prevents calcium from entering the nerve cells and thus keeps the blood vessels and muscles relaxed. Insufficient amount of magnesium can lead calcium to enter the blood vessels leading them to contract. It also leads to high blood pressure, migraine headache etc.
