Are you a health nut?

We definitely are at The Tennessee Valley Pecan Company!

Pecans have an incredible amount of health benefits! Along with being delicious, they are also nutritious! Pecans contain many essential vitamins and minerals that we so often lack on getting. Things such as ellagic acid and oleic acid are the body’s natural antioxidant booster and help flush toxins out of the body. They also protect the body from cancer.  The vitamins that you gain from eating pecans include: vitamin-E, B-Complex groups, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, zinc, and several others!

Benefits of regular pecan consumption?

  •    Lowers high blood pressure.
