2. Maintain Strong and Healthy Bones, Muscles, and Nerves

Cashews are an excellent source of magnesium, an essential mineral vital for bone, tissue, and nerve health. About two-thirds of the magnesium in the human body is stored in the bones. Clearly, it is an essential mineral in the physical structure of the bones. In addition, magnesium helps to balance calcium levels. It prevents too much calcium from entering the nerve cells and activating nerves. This makes for calmer, more relaxed muscles. That’s why too little magnesium can result in uncomfortable and painful muscle spasms.
