Product Description：Pecan nuts, also known as "longevity fruit", are the fruits of American pecans. They have the functions of nourishing the kidneys and brain, replenishing qi, moisturizing the skin, and blackening the beard and hair. The shell is very brittle and easy to peel off, and the texture of the meat is between that of a large walnut and a small walnut. Pecans are abundant in North America, Australia and other countries. Nowadays, a small amount of pecans have been planted in Zhejiang Province in my country. The fruits are rich in nutrients and delicious. Since the fat content of pecan nuts is relatively high, it is recommended to consume them no more than twice a week and no more than 3 pecans each time. Too many pecan nuts will make the body fat and affect blood lipids.
