All right – who is tired of hearing about the perfection of the Brazilian butt? Superbly showcased on a little Y shaped stage (la thong) the Brazilian bottom is an invitation to both men and women to nestle in warm, pillowly plumpness. But such buttocks are not always achieved by nature alone. They are oft aided by a professional sculptor (better known as a plastic surgeon). So what the Hell do Brazil nuts have to do with Brazilian butts you demand impatiently?
In a nutshell (heheheh), Brazil nuts contains a number of minerals which build connective tissue and muscle (essential to firm butts). They also have a huge amount of selenium which does wonders for the skin.
Selenium aids the production of an antioxidant called glutathione, which actively slows down the skin’s aging process by repairing cell damage from things like sun overexposure. Alongside skin conditioning vitamin E and protein, Brazil nuts contain selenium in abundance. One ounce of Brazil nuts provides 774 percent of the daily recommended value of selenium. Selenium is a trace mineral essential to immune and thyroid function. While selenium deficiency does not often occur in Western countries, it may cause anxiety disorders, asthma, depression, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis and seizures.
A 1-oz. serving of Brazil nuts contain 27 percent the RDA for magnesium which helps with the functioning of muscles, the production of protein and absorption of energy from food. They also offer 25 percent of the RDA for copper which can help the body use iron, maintain bone and connective tissue health, promote thyroid function, support the production of melanin and protect and repair tissues. With 20 percent of the RDA for phosphorous, Brazil nuts also support bone and teeth health. Brazil nuts also provide manganese, zinc, vitamin E, potassium and riboflavin – all critical anti-aging weapons!
