Hazelnuts are tree nuts. They are a good source of copper and vitamin E. The term vitamin E describes a family of eight antioxidants, four tocopherols, and four tocotrienols. The main function of vitamin E is as an antioxidant that helps maintain the integrity of cell membranes throughout the body. Vitamin E also plays a major role in cell proliferation and how cells communicate with each other.
Copper is important in our diets because it is involved in many processes in our bodies. Copper powers our mitochondria, helps absorb iron, which keeps our red blood cells healthy, and it’s necessary in the formation of collagen.
