Cashews are good source of fibre which aids in better digestion. Some research suggests that consuming whole, raw cashews benefits in weight loss too since only 70% fat of the nut is absorbed by the body and the rest is excreted with fibre. However excessive consumption may cause bloating.

High Energy:

Cashews are one of the most ideal source of quick energy for atheletes since they are high in protein. It is also a rich source of copper which is necessary to absorb iron in the body to keep energy levels high (haemoglobin high)

Hair and Skin:

Another benefits of cashew nuts are improved hair & skin. Copper in cashew helps in building skin and hair pigment which also gives the color and shine. It also supports production of collagen and elastin resulting in healthy skin.

Cashews should be consumed raw, not salted. This is primarily because cashew and salt together decrease the nutrition of the body. Cashew is a great source of calcium for bones. Salt has sodium. When calcium combines with sodium, it results in lack of absorption of calcium by the body which causes weaker bones and teeth. You can read more about this here.
