Walnuts: The Super-nut

  • Walnuts are packed with cancer-kicking properties (colon and breast).

  • Walnuts contain plant-based omega-3 fatty acid which is anti-inflammatory. This can prevent blood clots and can help our entire cardiovascular system.

  • Walnuts are packed with rare and powerful antioxidants. These antioxidants are so powerful  that they can prevent chemically-induced liver damage.

  • Walnuts can help you maintain your ideal weight and even help you lose weight. This is because nuts help you feel full and satisfied and are packed with fiber.

  • Walnuts contain Vitamin E, which supports proper brain function.
