Walnut With Shell 400g
walnuts have a delectable nutty flavor, and a crisp, buttery texture. They are delicious for snacking and can also be baked into cookies, cakes, and breads. Toss them into salads or sprinkle them over soup for a delightful nutty crunch. Walnuts also go well as a topping for ice cream or frozen yogurt.
walnuts are an excellent source of fiber, magnesium, protein, and phosphorus, as well as the antioxidant selenium. Research shows that walnuts can help protect against cardiovascular, neurological, and anti-carcinogenic diseases, which is likely due to their ability to control free radicals.not suitable for customers with an allergy to peanuts, other nuts, wheat or soya due to manufacturing methods
One-quarter cup of walnuts, for instance, provides more than 100 percent of the daily recommended value of plant-based omega-3 fats, along with high amounts of copper, manganese, molybdenum, and biotin. Some of the most exciting research about walnuts includes:
Walnuts may help reduce not only the risk of prostate cancer, but breast cancer as well. In one study, mice that ate the human equivalent of 2.4 ounces of whole walnuts for 18 weeks had significantly smaller and slower-growing prostate tumors compared to the control group that consumed the same amount of fat but from other sources.
Overall the whole walnut diet reduced prostate cancer growth by 30 to 40 percent. According to another study on mice, the human equivalent of just two handfuls of walnuts a day cut breast cancer risk in half, and slowed tumor growth by 50 percent as well.
Walnuts contain the amino acid l-arginine, which offers multiple vascular benefits to people with heart disease, or those who have increased risk for heart disease due to multiple cardiac risk factors.
If you struggle with herpes, you may want to avoid or limit walnuts, as high levels of arginine can deplete the amino acid lysine, which can trigger herpes recurrences.
Walnuts also contain the plant-based omega-3 fat alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is anti-inflammatory and may prevent the formation of pathological blood clots. Research shows that people who eat a diet high in ALA are less likely to have a fatal heart attack and have a nearly 50 percent lower risk of sudden cardiac death.
Eating just four walnuts a day has been shown to significantly raise blood levels of heart-healthy ALA, and walnut consumption supports healthful cholesterol levels.
Separate research showed that eating just one ounce of walnuts a day may decrease cardiovascular risk,and among those at high cardiovascular risk, increased frequency of nut consumption significantly lowers the risk of death.
