Walnut halves are also referred to as “Whole Halves”. It sounds like a contradictory name, but it makes sense. Walnuts are tree nuts, and they grow in a shell about one and a half inches around.

Walnuts (Juglans regia) are a tree nut belonging to the walnut family.

Health Benefits of Walnuts

Let’s find out some of the major health benefits of walnuts.

Improve Heart Health

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), walnuts are rich in omega 3 fatty acids that have been shown to help improve heart health. Fresh raw walnuts are rich in amino acid l-arginine, and monounsaturated fatty acids (72%) like oleic acid.

It also contains essential fatty acids (EFAs), such as linoleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), and arachidonic acids. The inclusion of these nuts in any diet can help prevent coronary heart diseases by favoring a healthy lipid supply.

A study published in the journal Metabolism suggests that consuming walnuts significantly lowered the LDL (bad) cholesterol and increased the level of HDL (good) cholesterol in the participants. Researchers at the University of Munich Medical Center, Germany, found that consuming walnuts also reduced ApoB levels, a marker used to evaluate the risk for cardiovascular diseases.

Manage Weight

Walnuts help you feel full, which means that they increase satiety. Researchers from Harvard Medical School found that people who consumed shakes containing walnuts had an increased level of fullness during the day as compared to people who had placebo shakes. This study did, however, utilize a small size, so more research is needed to confirm these results. Regardless, the rich source of protein and fiber makes walnuts a healthy snacking option, especially for vegetarians.

Boost Bone Health

Walnuts contain copper and phosphorus both of which are essential in maintaining optimal bone health. Essential fatty acids found in walnuts secure the bone health of the body. They may increase calcium absorption and deposition while reducing urinary calcium excretion.

Brain Health

Walnuts contain omega-3 fatty acids, which can help improve memory and focus. Omega-3 fatty acids, coupled with iodine and selenium ensure optimum functioning of the brain. These nuts are included in the Mediterranean diet and they are also known to give relief from cognitive disorders like dementia and epilepsy.

Antioxidant Power

Walnuts rank second on the list of ‘antioxidant-rich’ foods, just under blackberries. The rare,  powerful antioxidants such as quinone juglone, the tannin tellimagrandin, and the flavonol morin present in walnuts have remarkable free-radical scavenging power. These antioxidants also help prevent liver damage due to chemicals.

Improve Metabolism

Walnut, along with EFAs, provide minerals like manganese, copper, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium to the body. These minerals help contribute to metabolic activities like growth and development, sperm generation, digestion, and nucleic acid synthesis.
