The Brazen Brazil
Brazil nuts are a natural way to maintain healthy, glowing skin. This nut is teeming with nutrients, including selenium, a mineral crucial to immune system function that helps speed cell turn over and leaves the complexion with a beautiful glow. The minerals and vitamins in a Brazil nut also help to reduce wrinkles. Vitamin A and E increase skin collagen, which allow for a smoother complexion, and zinc promotes skin cell growth, decreasing dryness and promoting skin health.More than two to three Brazil nuts per day should never be eaten because of the high level of selenium inherent.
