4 Healthy Benefits of Walnuts

A mainstay of Dr. Andrew Weil's dietary recommendations, walnuts are an excellent choice when it comes to healthy snacking. Walnuts are good sources of:

1) Omega-3 fatty acids, protective fats that promote cardiovascular health, help maintain optimal cognitive function, and tone down inflammation.

2) Heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.

3) Ellagic acid, an antioxidant compound that helps support a healthy immune system.

4) L-arginine, an essential amino acid which promotes healthy blood pressure.

Try adding walnuts to your hot or cold breakfast cereals, eat them as a snack, use walnut oil in salad dressings, and add to pie crusts for a nutritional boost.
