PRESERVING THE FOREST
What they say about us
Nutrition, social responsibility and environmental awareness, this is the standing forest, a passionate company that offers fresh and delicious chestnuts! I highly recommend it, and not only for the selenium of the chestnut, but for the genuine purpose of those behind it!
I recommend to my patients to consume at least 3 Brazil nuts a day, either as a snack or before the main meals, it is difficult to eat only 3 when I open the package of Floresta em Pé, fresh, crunchy and with an unmistakable taste sensation and as if had been harvested on the spot.
When I tried the chestnut from Sou Floresta em Pé, I was impressed because I had only tasted chestnuts so fresh and tasty straight from the shell, coming straight from Pará to me at harvest time! So I highly recommend it to my patients and followers, with the pleasure of knowing that it is high quality food for our nourishing and helping the ecosystem!
An excellent option of monounsaturated fat that helps control cholesterol levels in the bloodstream, detected in laboratory tests. Regional product with nutritional benefits, relevant social and environmental impact! What incredible work is being done here in our municipality.
Consuming the delicious chestnuts of the Standing Forest is much more than a simple consumption, it is part of an evolutionary transformation, it is nourishing our body with organic and healthy chestnuts, but, mainly, contributing to sustainability, environmental regeneration and mitigation climate change, which will undoubtedly bring benefits to nature and all forms of life.

HELPS THE SLIMMING
Brazil nuts are loaded with fiber and protein, essential for losing weight. In addition, they are also a good source of selenium, magnesium, phosphorus and thiamine, all considered useful in weight loss. Brazil nuts also contain L-arginine, which is efficient in the fat burning process. They also help to boost your metabolism.
RAISES THE HUMOR AND PREVENTS DEPRESSION
Selenium has been scientifically proven to elevate mood and prevent depression, Brazil nuts are the main source of selenium in food on the planet.
Brazil nuts can give your heart a healthy boost, because they contain healthy fats called polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids, and are rich in antioxidants, minerals and fibers, improving blood HDL cholesterol levels and decreasing the risk of heart disease, strokes, obesity and type 2 diabetes.
Brazil nuts are also on the list of cancer-fighting foods, again due to high levels of ellagic acid and selenium. Ellagic acid is also antimutagenic and anticancer. While selenium, an essential biological trace element, has been shown to reduce and prevent the incidence of cancer.
IMPROVES BRAIN FUNCTIONING
Brazil nuts contain ellagic acid and selenium, which can benefit your brain. Ellagic acid is a type of polyphenol in Brazil nuts. It has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may have reductions in antioxidant function to cognitive impairment and neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease, in addition to having protective and antidepressant effects on your brain.
Brazil nuts are rich in several antioxidants, including selenium, vitamin E, phenols such as gallic acid and ellagic acid, substances that help keep cells healthy by fighting damage caused by reactive molecules called free radicals and may even be neuroprotective. Selenium increases levels of an enzyme known as glutathione peroxidase (GPx), which helps to reduce inflammation and protect the body from oxidative stress - an imbalance between antioxidants and free radicals that can lead to cell damage.
Your thyroid is a small gland in the shape of a butterfly that sits in your throat, contains hormones essential for growth, helps control your metabolism, heart rate and body temperature. The thyroid gland has more selenium content per gram of tissue than any other organ in the body. Selenium in Brazil nuts can help keep the thyroid in good working order and in good health by preventing the effects of Hashimoto's thyroiditis, an autoimmune disorder in which thyroid tissue is gradually destroyed, leading to hypothyroidism and a variety of symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain and feeling cold.
Selenium in Brazil nuts can increase the body's antioxidant system and prevent oxidative stress. The liver divides selenium into a type of protein called selenoprotein P, which effectively removes excess free radicals. Free radicals cause oxidative stress, and research has linked them to many chronic health conditions, including cancer.
