    Heart disease is the leading cause of death in kidney patients. Thus, it is important for renal patients to have a healthy heart. Cashew is low fat content and most of it is in the form of oleic acid. Studies show that oleic acid promotes good cardiovascular health by helping to reduce triglyceride levels. And high levels of triglyceride levels are associated with an increasing risk for heart disease. Cashews are cholesterol free and their high antioxidant content helps lower risk of cardiovascular and coronary heart diseases.

    2. Bone health

    Cashews are rich in magnesium. Just like calcium, magnesium is necessary for strong bones. Bone problem like bone pain and bone fracture is a common complication in kidney patients. Eating cashews can relieve bone problem to some extent.

    3. Lower high blood pressure

    High blood pressure is a cause and also a complication from kidney disease. Hypertension and kidney disease affects each other. Cashew nuts lower your blood pressure with the help of magnesium. This can reduce further damage on kidneys.
