What are the nutritional benefits of having pilinuts during pregnancy

Pilinuts are the new superfood rich in a variety of nutrients including iron and magnesium. Research suggests that getting adequate magnesium during pregnancy can help prevent the uterus from contracting prematurely. Magnesium also helps in the growth of strong teeth and bones in your baby.

Pilinuts are the highest fat and lowest carb nut with the fats being mostly heart-healthy monounsaturated, with a profile comparable to olive oil.

These nuts grow in volcanic ash, mostly in Philipines, which leads to higher mineral content versus almonds and peanuts. It also contains phosphorus, calcium, iron, zinc and several trace minerals in moderate amounts.

Pilinuts are also a good source of thiamine. This nutrient helps in the conversion of carbohydrates into energy. It also strengthens your nervous system, muscles, and heart function.

No published case studies document a pili nut allergy. Pili are gluten free, however, consult your doctor if you have tree nut allergy before eating.
