PLEASE NOTE: Nuts and seeds contain many anti-nutrients that impact nutrient absorption. They are also a high PUFA food and should be consumed sparingly. Activating nuts and seeds neutralises some of the anti-nutrients making them easier on the gut. If you are currently on a gut healing protocol, suffer with fatigue and brain fog, or have nutrient deficiencies it may be best to omit nuts and seeds from your diet whilst you heal.
