Walnuts have omega 3 fats and antioxidants that boost brain health. Just a quarter cup of walnuts provides over 90% of the recommended daily value of omega-3 fats! But that’s not all! Some of the other benefits of these delicious nuts are:
Their antioxidants also boost heart health and support healthy cholesterol levels;
As little as 1 oz. a day can improve cardiovascular health;
They are a rich source of minerals;
According to a study by researchers at Penn State University, a diet rich in walnuts and walnut oil may prepare your body to deal better with stress;
They are anti-inflammatory and have anti-aging properties;
The ALA they contain improves bone health;
Eating walnuts is also associated with increased satiety after just three days so they are a potent weight loss food. You can eat a handful as a snack, put them on your salad or in your oatmeal or smoothie.
