You may think of walnuts as a dessert ingredient in cookies, muffins, brownies, and baklava. But our organic walnuts sourced from Hunza are also perfect for snacking, or as a topping for salads, cooked veggies, whole grains, and hummus. In addition to their crunch, walnuts deliver important nutrients and offer science-backed health benefits.
Walnuts are nutrient-rich
The daily target for manganese, and smaller amounts of magnesium, iron, calcium, and vitamins. Walnuts are also packed with antioxidants known to possess anti-inflammatory effects, which help protect against the initiation and progression of cancer, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases.
They deliver healthy fats
Researchers found that after a month of consuming a few ounces of walnuts daily, the subjects’ omega-3 status improved. They also experienced reductions in body weight and body fat, plus gains in lean body mass and body water.
Walnuts can help gut and heart health
The bioactive compounds in walnuts may play an important role in altering the gut environment in ways that impact disease outcomes, say researchers. Walnuts enhanced beneficial gut bacteria linked to health benefits, including reduced blood pressure and total cholesterol.
They help reduce blood pressure
Walnuts included a reduction in central diastolic blood pressure, and positive changes to cholesterol profiles. Scientists say the study is an example of how a relatively small eating change can result in significant cardiovascular benefits.
They can benefit brain health
Eating walnuts may help slow cognitive decline in at-risk groups of older adults. While the walnuts had no effect on the cognitive function of healthy subjects, brain MRIs showed that the nuts had a greater effect on higher-risk people, including heavier smokers, and those with lower baseline neuropsychological test scores.
