Scientists have discovered that Walnuts are the healthiest nuts to eat loaded as they are with superior antioxidants.
Snacking on as few as 7 a day prevents disease and lowers cholesterol. The antioxidants found in raw walnuts were 15 times as powerful as Vitamin E, which can protect the body against damaging natural chemicals that enhance the immune system and protect against aging, cancer and neurological disorders.
Aside from the antioxidant benefit, walnuts can defend your system from inflammatory diseases like asthma, psoriasis, eczema and rheumatoid arthritis.
Walnuts also contain high levels of B-complex group of vitamins like folates, riboflavin, thiamin and others which are ideal for consumption by pregnant women.
Eating walnuts reduces your risk of coronary heart disease. Don’t chomp on walnuts on top of heavy meals laden with saturated fat. Instead, replace foods containing saturated fat with walnuts.
