Health Benefits of Walnuts

There are several health benefits of walnuts. The important ones established by research over the years are listed below.

Improve Heart Function

Walnuts are rich in omega-3 and are an ample source of monounsaturated fatty acids, 72%, like oleic acid. It also contains EFAs like linoleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid, and arachidonic acids. Scientific studies prove that the inclusion of walnuts in any diet helps prevent coronary heart diseases by favoring a healthy lipid supply.

Improve Metabolism

One of the health benefits of consuming walnuts is that it improves the body metabolism. They, along with EFAs, provide minerals like manganese, copper, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium to the body. These minerals help contribute to metabolic activities like growth and development, sperm generation, digestion, and nucleic acid synthesis.

Control Diabetes

 

People suffering from diabetes can have walnuts on a regular basis without any significant weight gain, since they contain a high amount of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. Also the intake of nuts is inversely proportional to the risk of developing type-II diabetes.
