Health-Nut is an event plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Guardian IconGuardian class. He costs 3SunPvZH to play, and has 4PvZH StrengthHeart. He does not have any traits, and his ability makes the amount of damage he does equal to his health stat.

He was added in update 1.14.13, along with Garlic, Secret Agent, High-Voltage Currant, Banana Split, Sun-Shroom, Gargantuar-Throwing Imp, Imposter, and Zombie High Diver.

He was made available in the Weekly Event which ran from April 25, 2017 to May 2, 2017, and became craftable as of update 1.16.10.


His name comes from the phrase "health nut," a person who is obsessed with their health. It also serves as a visual pun, as Health-Nut is depicted as a Tall-Nut in shape lifting a nut barbell.

Card description

He always skips leg day.

Update history

Update 1.14.13

  • Added to the game.



On his own, Health-Nut is a 4StrengthPvZH/4HeartPvZH plant, which is above average stats for a 3SunPvZH card. However, his ability causes him to lose strength whenever he takes damage, so always keep an eye on his health. On the other hand, this also means that the more health Health-Nut has, the more damage he does. It is advisable to play cards that boost health such as Smackadamia, Steel Magnolia, and Photosynthesizer, which not only increases his health, but also his damage output. Grape Responsibility is a very notable trick for Health-Nut due to its extremely low cost, doubling its health which effectively doubles its strength.

If you don't have any of these, you will have to play cards that boost both stats, such as Fertilize, even though the strength boost would be practically meaningless apart from making him immune to Rolling Stone or Weed Spray. If Health-Nut is damaged, play healing cards like 2nd-Best Taco of All Time to restore his health so he can do a more powerful attack. You can also protect him from further damage by shielding him with tricks like Root Wall (only available to Citron and Grass Knuckles), playing a Team-Up plant like Wall-Nut in front of him, or moving him out of harm's way with Gardening Gloves.

Since this is also a nut, you can play Mirror-Nut to prevent your opponent from hastily hurting him, or Smackadamia for the aforementioned health-boosting synergy.

However, you must be really careful against PvZH Hearty IconHearty heroes, as Health-Nut technically has 0 strength, making him vulnerable to the aforementioned instant-kill tricks.


You must be really careful against this as the more health he has, the more damage he does when he attacks. Fortunately, this also means that he is easier to deal with if he is low on health.

As any Hearty hero, you can play Rolling Stone or Weed Spray to destroy Health-Nut instantly, as long as he has 2StrengthPvZH or less. If you are playing as a PvZH Beastly IconBeastly hero, Squirrel Herder can destroy the Health-Nut instantly since he's a nut plant. In case Squirrel Herder is unavailable, resort to using Locust Swarm instead. If Health-Nut is damaged, you can try a sneaky way by using Evaporate on him, though only Electric Boogaloo and Immorticia can use this. Beastly heroes can also use stat-lowering tricks such as Nibble on Health-Nut to lower his health and make his strength weaker.

As for other heroes, you can aim to damage him as much as possible using damaging tricks such as Bungee Plumber or by having a zombie on the same lane as Health-Nut do a bonus attack, which not only damages him, but also reduces his damage output.



  • During development, he costed 5 sun, had 6StrengthPvZH/6HeartPvZH, and had no abilities.
  • He is the first card to be featured in a Daily Challenge.
