Doing a juice cleanse is a great weigh to detoxify the body, and get rid of some of that extra body fat that you want gone fast. A cashew milk cleanse can be taken alongside a juice cleanse of choice, in order to keep healthy nutrient levels stable. It can also just be taken as a normal drink!
Cashews are seriously underappreciated nuts that are naturally low in carbohydrates, high in healthy fats, rich in protein and are cholesterol free! Check out all the health benefits that cashews can give you, and then try making a homemade cashew milk recipe from scratch to start your cleanse.
Cashew Health Benefits
Low Fat Content
Compared to other nuts, cashews contain a very low fat content, and are high in oleic acids that are extremely healthy for the heart. Cashews are also cholesterol free and have antioxidants that work to keep heart disease at bay.
Helps With Weight Loss
Although cashews are considered to be fats, they contain the good kind of cholesterol that doesn’t add extra weight. Studies have found that those who eat cashews at least twice a week gain less weight compared to those who do not.
Healthy Bones and Teeth
The magnesium content that’s present in cashew nuts is excellent for bone strength, much in the same way that calcium is.
Lowers High Blood Pressure
With the presence of magnesium, cashews are fantastic for helping to lower your blood pressure.
Cashews contain a class of flavonoids called proanthocyanidins, which help to fight against cancer by preventing tumor cells from dividing further. The high copper content also help to fight against cancerous cells, with colon cancer cells being a particular target.
