Statistically, 38% of all Walnut production comes from the United States and 90% of that production is from California. The walnut tree was originally cultivated thousands of years ago near India and surround regions of the Caspian Sea. Walnuts are a tree nut and consuming the skin is the way to optimize the nutritional benefits of this nut. Walnuts are available for purchase all year round but they are harvested in the month of December.
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.
Top Kitchen Uses
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.
