Whether looking for a low-calorie snack to curb hunger or a pre-workout meal, trail mix is a great nutritional booster that improves energy levels and provides good essential fats, fibre, energy vitamins, and minerals required for body functioning. Compared with calorie-dense snacks like fried chips or sugar-loaded chocolates, trail mixes are a healthy option to binge on. The health benefits of dry fruit trail mix heavily rely on the specific ingredients it contains. A healthy trail mix uses the best-quality dry fruits like almonds, cashews, walnuts, seeds, and nuts. 

But beware, that not all trail mix available in the market is good for your health! Some contain sugar, chocolate, and sodium, which can negatively impact health. Similarly to any other food, trail mix should be consumed moderately. Overindulging in trail mix can lead to weight gain, high blood pressure, cholesterol, and other health issues. 

Health Benefits of Trail Mix

Healthy trail mix offers several benefits due to combination of nutritionally rich ingredients. Here are some of the potential health benefits it may provide:

1.May Prevent Constipation

Constipation is a common digestive issue faced by individuals with difficulty passing stools, infrequent bowel movements, and dry or hard stools. If you’re experiencing constipation, including a fibre-rich diet may help to alleviate the symptoms. When it comes to preventing the effect of constipation, a dried fruit trail mix is a good snack to rely on. Dried fruits such as figs, prunes, dates, and raisins contain a good amount of dietary fibre, which may be useful in preventing constipation. Fibre retains water and moves through the digestive system without being broken down. This water softens the gut, leading to regular bowel movements and providing effective relief. 

2.May Treat Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes is a long-term condition that affects the body's metabolism. Unfortunately, there is no cure for this condition. The patients need to be cautious about their diet and select foods that do not lead to a sudden rise in blood sugar levels. A nutritious snack many depend on is trail mix, which comprises nuts, dried fruits, and seeds. This snack is packed with healthy fats, protein, and carbohydrates. Some trail mixes contain dates, raisins, sultanas, apricots, pistachios, cashews, and chestnuts with a low glycaemic index. These foods can help control blood sugar levels, especially for those with type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, trail mix nuts and seeds are high in fibre, regulating blood sugar levels and improving insulin activity. 

3.May Lower Heart Diseases

When consumed in moderation, trail mix nuts and seeds are beneficial for a heart-healthy diet. Raisins, cranberries, and dates are types of dry fruits that contain antioxidants. These antioxidants can help protect against oxidative stress linked to heart disease. At the same time, nuts like almonds, walnuts, and pistachios contain monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. These fats can reduce bad cholesterol levels and lower the chances of other heart diseases. Dry fruits contain concentrated potassium and magnesium, which regulate blood pressure and normal heart rhythm. In addition, vitamin E is an antioxidant that can help prevent atherosclerosis, which causes plaque build-up in the arteries.

4.May Boost Energy Level

Trail mix nuts are a nutrient-dense food that can effectively boost energy levels. Dry fruits are a great source of carbohydrates, which provide energy to the brain and muscles. They are rich in dietary fibre, which slows digestion, regulates blood sugar levels, and steadily releases energy over time. Dry fruit-like dates are extremely rich in iron and beneficial for those suffering from anaemia. It gives an instant energy boost as it is naturally high in natural sugar like glucose, fructose, and sucrose. For a quick and effective boost in energy, it is recommended that individuals incorporate 2 to 3 dates into their daily diet. 

Conclusion

What more could you ask from a healthy trail mix? Whether you enjoy it as a snack whenever hunger knocks or eat it before hitting the gym, the powerful ingredients in trail mix may help to improve heart health, brain function and let your taste buds enjoy a lip-smacking flavour. Even though trail mix is packed with nutrients, it tends to have a high-calorie count. But don't be discouraged from adding it to your daily diet.
