Looking for food options that help you boost your energy levels throughout the day? Pine seeds could be a good choice. These calorie-rich edible nuts have a high content of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that play a vital role in improving overall health.

They also play an essential role in weight loss. Citing a research, Amera Marian Varghese, clinical dietitian, Mediclinic Welcare Hospital, says, ‘The fatty acids derived from pine nuts can result in the release of high amounts of an appetite-suppressing hormone that can help in weight loss.’

They also have anti-ageing antioxidants, manganese and zinc to promote immunity health; monounsaturated fat, iron and protein to boost energy levels; and essential vitamins and minerals to enhance your skin and hair’s healthiness.
