Raw Walnuts Peeled
The walnuts are fruit of the walnut tree. They are nutritious, high-calorie food with exceptional health benefits. The ancient Greek historian Herodotus claimed that the priests in Ancient Babylon had forbidden the ordinary people to eat walnuts because they improved the thinking process and this was not necessary for the mob.
These nuts contain alpha-linolenic acid – one of the Omega 3 fatty acids, similar to those in fatty fish like salmon and mackerel. These basic fatty acids improve the cardiovascular health, as they help to lower the bad cholesterol in the blood. They also stimulate the brain function and improve concentration. They are excellent in a need of energy for sports or recovery after being ill, stressed or mentally tired. The walnuts are extremely rich in anti-inflammatory antioxidants and phytonutrients, which protect the cells from free radicals and help for lowering the risk of chronic oxidative stress. Therefore, it is claimed that they are a natural tool to prevent oncological diseases, especially of the prostate and breasts. In the walnuts’ composition there is melatonin – a hormone, which is of great importance for regulation of sleeping and other processes, multiple minerals (magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, iron, calcium), vitamins (vit. A, C, B6, B12, E), high-quality proteins and dissoluble and indissoluble fibres for healthy digestion.
Enjoy the taste and benefits of the walnuts of VM Organic as you include them in your menu!
