4 Reasons to Eat Walnuts
For one, I love almost every kind of nuts. For the holidays I love making cookies with nuts! So Walnuts has just skyrocketed on my cookie recipe list for this coming season.
So here are the 4 Reasons to Eat Walnuts:
- Omega-3 fatty acids, protective fats that promote cardiovascular health, help maintain optimal cognitive function, and tone down inflammation.
- Heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.
- Ellagic acid, an antioxidant compound that helps support a healthy immune system.
- L-arginine, an essential amino acid which promotes healthy blood pressure.
