Eating nuts and seeds regularly plays a key role in managing high cholesterol, high blood pressure, digestive disorders, heart disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, arthritis, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s and dementia. However, as most nuts are high in calories and fats, do not eat them in excess.

Walnuts contain omega-3 fats and protein, along with high amounts of vitamin E, many important B-complex vitamins, copper, manganese, biotin, amino acids, zinc, magnesium, calcium, potassium and selenium. As compared to other nuts, walnuts contain a high amount of monounsaturated fats, primarily polyunsaturated fatty acids, as well as a significant amount of alpha-linolenic acid. Regular consumption of walnuts can help reduce the risk of prostate and breast cancer, lower high blood pressure, improve cholesterol levels, aid in weight control, boost brain health and manage diabetes. They are equally good for your skin and hair.
