Walnuts

.
Walnuts belong to the tree nut family, along with Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pine nuts and pistachios. Each has its own unique nutritional profile. It's believed that the walnut tree dates as far back as 700 B.C. Walnuts were considered foods for the gods during the early Roman times, and were named after Jupiter, hence the scientific name Juglans regia.
The walnut that everyone is familiar with today is native to India and regions around the Caspian Sea, and was named for the English merchants that carried it for trade around the world.
Benefits of walnuts:
- walnuts may help reduce not only the risk of prostate cancer, but breast cancer as well
- walnuts contain the amino acid l-arginine, which offers multiple vascular benefits to people with heart disease
- walnuts contain several unique and powerful antioxidants that are available in only a few commonly eaten foods, may help prevent liver damage
- adding walnuts to your diet can help you to maintain your ideal weight
- walnuts contain a number of neuroprotective compounds which may support brain health and enhance cognitive and motor function in aging
- the beneficial dietary fat in walnuts has been shown to improve metabolic parameters in people with Type 2 diabetes.
