Walnuts

Native to southwest China and southeast Europe, walnuts grow in shells. They have a crumbly and crunchy texture, earthy taste, and mildly bitter undertone. But don’t let that put you off! 

Walnuts have a multitude of health benefits. They are high in protein and are a source of omega-3, copper, folic acid and vitamin B6. This makes them great for heart health, reducing blood pressure, enhancing fertility, increasing focus and nurturing your gut. 

Nutritional benefits of walnuts

Walnuts are an exceptionally nutritional nut, classed by nutritionists as a superfood. This means they are bursting with vitamins and minerals essential to human health. Here are some of the top benefits walnuts include.

Rich is fatty acids - Walnuts are an incredible source of fatty acids, including Omega-3 - an anti-inflammatory that calms irritated and inflamed cells. When cells are inflamed, you will experience slower blood flow, low energy, digestive issues, acne and hair loss. So, including walnuts is essential to keep everything balanced.

Contains copper - Copper helps convert food into energy and builds blood vessels and tissue. When your blood vessels have stronger walls, it creates an artery structure for oxygen and nutrients to circulate efficiently.

Great protein source - Our walnut halves contain 15 grams of protein in every 100 grams. This makes them an ideal choice if you are following a keto diet. Their high protein levels will also keep you full for longer, so adding them to meals is a great idea to prevent snacking.

Enriched with folic acid - Folic acid is essential for development and a vital nutrient when pregnant. It also helps brain function, hair growth and skin.

Full of vitamin B6 - B6 helps the body develop antibodies to fight disease and increase your immune system. So, when the cooler weather is approaching, consider adding walnuts to your diet to defend yourself against illness.

The crumbly texture of walnuts makes them simple to crush and add to any dish. They are also excellent raw as a healthy snack. Check out some ideas for using walnuts below.
