Participating in bone development, protein construction, enzymatic actions, muscle contraction and dental health, magnesium is a necessary element for the functioning of the metabolism.
Cashew nuts are also an excellent source of copper. This element, which is a constituent of several enzymes, plays an important role in the formation of hemoglobin and collagen, and several copper-containing enzymes also contribute to the body’s fight against free radicals.
Cashew provides the metabolism of phosphorus, the second most abundant mineral in the body after calcium. It is essential in the formation and maintenance of teeth and bones. It also participates in the growth and regeneration of tissues and helps to maintain the Ph of the blood at normal levels. Cholesterol is also a constituent of cell membranes.

It also participates in the transmission of nerve impulses and promotes normal growth. Vitamin B2 is also known as riboflavin. Like vitamin B1, it plays a role in the energy metabolism of all cells. In addition, it contributes to tissue growth and repair, hormone production and red blood cell formation.
Also called vitamin B5, pantothenic acid is part of a key coenzyme that allows us to adequately use the energy present in the food we eat. Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, is part of the coenzymes involved in the metabolism of proteins and fatty acids as well as in the production of neurotransmitters.
It also contributes to the production of red blood cells and allows them to carry more oxygen. Pyridoxine is also necessary for the transformation of glycogen into glucose and helps the immune system function properly. Finally, this vitamin plays a role in the formation of certain components of nerve cells.
