BRAIN HEALTH: It is not a surprise that walnuts are good for the brain, considering the nut unshelled resembles the brain. The walnut contains several neuroprotective compounds like Vitamin E, folate, melatonin, antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids. In studies, these omega-3 fats are suggested to reduce oxidative stress that takes place with aging. It also helps enhance cognitive and motor functioning in aging. The brain consists of almost 60% fats so we can conclude that the omega-3 fats found in these nuts are highly beneficial for our brains.
CARDIOVASCULAR & HEART HEALTH: The second organ that the walnut resembles is the lungs. The amino acid L-arginine in walnuts offers various cardiovascular benefits for those with risk of heart disease due to cardiac risk factors. The omega-3 fat alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) found in walnuts is also anti-inflammatory and helps prevent pathological blood clots from forming. Research shows that people with high levels of ALA in their diet are less likely to have a heart attack and a 50% risk reduction for sudden cardiac death. The form of vitamin E found in walnuts is gamma tocopherol, which has been shown in cardiovascular health studies to reduce heart problems.
ANTI CANCER BENEFITS: Some phytonutrients like; quinone juglone are not in other commonly eaten foods, but available in a walnuts. In addition, phytonutrients like tannin tellimagrandin or flavonol are also rare and valuable for their anti-inflammatory benefits. These anti-inflammatory benefits have been known to assist with certain cancers like breast and prostate cancer. A study on mice that consumed walnuts as their source of fat relative to a control group saw a smaller and slower growth in the prostate tumors over an 18-week period.
As with other nuts, walnuts are commonly used in vegan and vegetarian dishes. They are an abundant source of nutrition and a delicious addition to main dishes, salads, or desserts. They are also a substitute for pine nuts when making pesto sauce. Although the outside skin of the walnut contains 90% of all the antioxidants of the nut, the skin can be bitter, so it may be useful to remove the skin in some recipes.
