Whether you are on a keto diet for health reasons or to lose weight, adding nuts to your diet is generally a trustworthy move. More specifically, one nut native to Southeast Asia and Northern Australia, might just be the newfound product to add to your keto diet’s arsenal. That nut described, is the pili nut; a stable and durable nut that can offer a wide range of nutrients and health benefits to help make your attempt at keto a success.
A ketogenic diet is one that is rich in both protein and good fats. Yes, not all fats are bad. Monounsaturated fat, the predominant fat found in pili nuts, is a great source of good fat as it can effectively lower high cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. Pili nuts also contain barely any carbs, making them the perfect match for your keto diet. In addition, the wildly harvested and hand processed nut has no added oil and is a great source of vitamin B, fiber, magnesium and manganese.
Much of what makes Mount Mayon’s pili nuts the best of its kind is the location from which the nut originates. Mount Mayon is an active volcano located on the largest island in the Philippines. In the area surrounding the Filipino volcano, volcanic debris and material breakdown to form some of earth’s most fertile soil, making this area one of earth’s most desirable sites for cultivation and agriculture. This organic soil is also characterized by its high porosity, low PH and high moisture retention. It contains large amounts of organic acids which make nutrients widely available. In addition, the soil is rich in miniscule basalt crystals which contain plentiful amounts of iron, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Overall, Mount Mayon soil is the modern day equivalent of Jack’s magic beans. They may not grow you a thousand foot beanstalk overnight, but studies do show that crops planted in this soil grow faster, larger and healthier when compared to other organic soils. In addition, this soil allows our pili nuts to emanate from strong well nourished roots that will enhance the flavor and nutritional value of this incredible super food.
