Immunity Benefits – Manganese is an antioxidant that prevents oxidative damage from free radicals, protecting the body from illness and infection.

Skin and Hair Benefits – Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Zinc, Folate, and Phosphorus are vital to skin health. 

Anti-Aging Benefits – The fight against free radicals by the antioxidants in pecans does more than boost immunity and prevent cancer: it also prevents premature aging. Grow old gracefully with fewer fine lines and wrinkles.
