Pecans are not only festive and delectable; they are also abundant in monounsaturated fatty acids, such as oleic acid, which has been shown to lower LDL or “bad” cholesterol levels while raising HDL or “good” cholesterol levels. Additionally, they are an abundant source of vitamin E, a potent lipid-soluble antioxidant that shields skin from free radicals that cause aging and give you a radiant complexion.
