Only Seven Of These Each Day Gets You 10 Fantastic Health Benefits!
What food is full of fiber, rich in unique antioxidants, and full of healthy unsaturated fatty acids? Walnuts! These small nuts are treasure chests simply brimming over with goodness, yet few people take advantage of them. The average person in both the U.S. and in Europe consumes only about 12 grams of nuts each day, and these are usually peanuts, which are technically legumes.
Why should you eat walnuts each day? One professor at the University of Scranton looked at all types of raw and roasted nuts. He concluded that not only should we be eating more nuts, but that there was one nut in particular that was head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to health benefits.
That nut was the walnut, of course.
Published in the online in the journal Food and Function, this study showed that walnuts have a higher antioxidant potency and antioxidant polyphenols than any other nut.
Why is it that people eat so few nuts, especially when information about how nutritionally dense they are is available everywhere? Perhaps because when it comes to nuts, people know or hear that they are a bit high in fat and calories, so they stop right there and simply dismiss nuts as not being right for their diets.
This is a mistake, however. The best thing about walnuts is that you don’t need to eat half a pound to get benefits, you only need seven. That’s right, seven little walnuts each day will get you more nutrition than you can imagine, not to mention antioxidants you can’t find in any other food.
Just a quarter cup of walnuts (about seven nuts) will give you as much as the daily recommended amount of plant based omega-3 fatty acids. These nuts are very high in biotin, copper, molybdenum, and manganese. Keep reading and find out what you can get when you indulge in just seven little walnuts a day.
