Health Tips

1. There are few foods that are as nutritiously complete as English walnuts. For more than a dozen years, research by highly-respected scientific and clinical experts has continued to reveal that walnuts are truly a "Super Food.” English walnuts are one of the most nutrient-dense whole food sources of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an essential omega-3 fatty acid. Omega-3s help reduce the potential for heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and clinical depression. Eating raw walnuts is one of the easiest things a person can do to improve their health.

2. A new study published in Diabetes Care and conducted in Australia shows that, for patients with type 2 diabetes, a whole foods diet including walnuts can reduce LDL "bad" cholesterol by as much as 10 percent. This study is one of the first to look at the effect of polyunsaturated fatty acids on diabetes management. A diet including raw English walnuts can help the body address one of the problems associated with early stage type 2 diabetes — insulin resistance — which hinders the absorption of glucose from the bloodstream into human cells.

3. An ever-growing body of research has shown that walnuts play a significant role in reducing the risk of heart disease. The heart benefits of English walnuts include lowering cholesterol, reducing inflammation and improving arterial function. 1. Research by highly-respected scientific and clinical experts has continued to reveal that raw walnuts are truly a superfood. Omega-3s in English walnuts help reduce the potential for heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and clinical depression.

4. In an ideal diet, the two families of essential fatty acids EFAs (omega-6 and omega-3) should be balanced in a ratio of no more than 4:1 for optimum health. The average American's dietary ratio can be in excess of an alarming 20:1, or more. A serving of heart-healthy English walnuts can help keep these levels in check. Artemis P. Simopoulos, M.D., president of The Center for Genetics, Nutrition and Health and author of The Omega Diet says, "Walnuts are unique because they have a perfect balance of omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, a ratio of 4:1, which has been shown to decrease the risk of sudden death in the Lyon Heart Study." Simopoulos says omega-3s reduce the bloodstream levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol and maintain or raise HDL (good) cholesterol.

5. A USDA study of food antioxidants noted the high antioxidant concentration in walnuts, which help the body ward off life-threatening maladies such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes, as well as debilitating ailments such as arthritis, osteoporosis and Alzheimer's disease. While there are several different methods used to measure antioxidant levels, such as the oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) and the ferric-reducing ability of plasma (FRAP) methods, walnuts rank highly under either method.

6. Researchers have noted in many walnuts studies that subjects did not gain weight when walnuts were substituted for other fat in the diet. People reported feeling more satisfied; many said walnuts made it easier to stick to a diet and improve weight loss.

7. In a landmark decision in March 2004, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) delivered the strongest governmental endorsement of walnuts to date when it affirmed: "Supportive but not conclusive research shows that eating 1.5 ounces per day of walnuts, as part of a low saturated fat and low cholesterol diet and not resulting in increased caloric intake, may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. See nutrition information for fat content."

8. In historical terms, walnut science is new and cutting-edge, yet walnut health lore is ancient. During Medieval times, raw walnuts were considered a medicine to soothe the digestive system. In the 16th and 17th centuries, herbal treatments became official medical practice under the "Doctrine of Signatures," and the walnut, with its visual likeness to the human brain, was used to treat head ailments, boost intellect and calm emotions.

“I ordered non-Chinese pine nuts, walnuts, and chickpeas. The pine nuts were all I hoped they'd be, but the walnuts were amazing! I thought I didn't like walnuts, but these were so fresh without weird aftertastes! I love the packaging and the box it came in. Fun fun fun!! I will order again! Oh I got a free sample of veggie chips, Andy hubby loved them!”

“These walnuts are so good, I couldn't even believe it. I ordered walnuts as part of a custom trail mix (dried strawberries, dried cherries, almonds, walnuts, and yogurt chips, YUM!) because they're so heathful, but usually I don't care for them much. Not so with these! Mild, not bitter at all. So fresh and with the soft, oily crispness that I more often associate with pine nuts. I'm converted. Best walnuts EVER. I could eat mountains of them. ”
