Super source of Omega-3s
Omega-3s are extremely important, as they’re loaded with powerful health benefits. Some of these benefits include their ability to fight depression and anxiety, autoimmune disease, asthma and mental illness.
Rich in antioxidant
You may have heard a lot of talk about antioxidants! They protect your body from illnesses like cancer and heart disease.
Supports a healthy digestive syste
A healthy gut is the way to overall good health! Presence of ‘good’ bacteria in your intestines builds a healthy gut. The food that you eat majorly influences the types of bacteria inside you. Eating walnuts can be one way to support your gut.
Helps control your weight
It was observed that people who drank walnut smoothies once a day for 5 days, had decreased appetite and hunger. Scientists say that the resistance towards tempting food can be because of an increased activation in a region of the brain.
Reduces risk of some cancers
Walnuts are loaded with polyphenols which are converted to compounds by bacteria in our gut. They have anti-inflammatory properties, which can extend protection against colorectal cancer.
Inflammation is the main cause of many diseases. The polyphenols present in walnuts can help fight it. As mentioned earlier, ‘good’ bacteria convert polyphenols into compounds which protect against inflammation.
Lower blood pressure
Did you know that high blood pressure is the main risk factor for heart disease and stroke? Eating walnuts can help lower it. Studies show that mediterranean diets rich in nuts decrease blood pressure significantly.
Benefit brain health
A walnut looks like a tiny brain! The outer hard shell resembles our skull, which is the protective covering of the brain. The wrinkles and folds on the nut are also similar to our brains. Walnuts also have two segments just like the human brain’s right and left hemispheres. Truly, nature's wonder!
Supports healthy aging
Walnuts provide a bunch of nutrients like healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, plant compounds and fibers that may improve physical functioning during old age. Add walnuts to smoothies, or oats at breakfast, or sprinkle them on lentil soup for lunch!
Improve male fertility
Health benefits of walnuts include supporting male reproductive health. Eating walnuts may help manage sperm health and male fertility.
Manages type-2 diabetes
As we discussed earlier, the benefits of walnuts in weight control are linked to lowering the risk of type-2 diabetes. A study found that consuming walnut oil can decrease fasting blood sugar by 8%.
