Hazelnuts are a great snack with many benefits for the body. They are rich in unsaturated fats, the good fats that are good for your cholesterol levels and for the heart. One cup of hazelnuts is known to contain almost half of our recommended daily amount of the essential mineral magnesium, which regulates calcium levels in muscles.

Dates are nature’s candy. These delicious treats are filled with iron, potassium, sodium, protein and vitamins. They are low in cholesterol and do not contain excessive amounts of fat. The combination of these nutrients is good for the heart, aid in weight loss, provide energy and reduce the risks of strokes.

One of the spices that you will find on a milk tart, apple tart and other tasty desserts is cinnamon. Cinnamon does not only add a distinct smell and a rich flavour to food but it also has some really good health benefits. It is a natural source of antioxidants. It has anti inflammatory properties which may reduce the risk of disease. Cinnamon is also known to be a good natural remedy for an upset stomach as it is also antibacterial so all those nasty bugs that inhabit your body when you are not feeling can be fought by increasing your intake of cinnamon.
