Dr. Parmeet says that although all three are very good at their respective places, but still health experts believe that walnuts are super nuts or super dry fruits among walnuts, cashews and almonds. The nutritional value of walnuts is the highest and better among these three nuts. That’s why doctors also advise to eat only walnuts. At the same time, almond comes on the second number. Elders including children and even pregnant women are also advised to eat soaked almonds. Cashew is at number three in the eyes of doctors and doctors neither recommend it for patients or normal people nor include it in super healthy dry fruits or super healthy nuts.
