Unfortunately, hazelnuts are one the least consumed nuts out there, which is a shame because a single serving of them contains 86 percent of the recommended daily amount of Vitamin E, a very important vitamin for your skin, among other things. You’ll also get half of the daily dose of magnesium, a mineral that helps regulate the calcium levels in muscles and maintain the skeletal system. Post-menopausal women are often deficient in magnesium, which makes hazelnuts an excellent food for that particular population.
Then there are the B Vitamins: B1 (thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), and B9 (folic acid) are all present in high amounts in the hazelnut. As for the importance of B vitamins, it might be easier to list what B vitamins don’t do as opposed to trying to list everything that they are involved in. Suffice to say, they are important and hazelnuts are a great source for them. In other words, eat some.
