Walnuts Are a Health Essential
Did you know that California walnuts are produced under stringent quality controls that exceed California inspection standards, reputed to be the world’s toughest? These wonderful crunchy and mildly sweet wonder nuts, when added to our daily diet, can help in overall wellness:
Say hello to a healthy heart: Loaded with good fats (plant-based omega-3 ALA), walnuts, as part of a nutritious and balanced diet, may decrease the risk of heart disease and stroke. They help maintain healthy cholesterol levels and decrease blood pressure, two of the major risk factors for heart disease.
Immunity: Walnuts are a good source of plant-based vitamin B, zinc, and selenium — the trio that boasts of the potential to ensure normal functioning of our immune system as per FSSAI’s Eat Right During Covid 19 guidelines.
Weight maintenance: While walnuts may not make you shed those extra calories, they sure help along the way. Research shows walnuts’ potential role in influencing appetite hormones that make you feel full for longer. Which, in turn, avoids unnecessary cravings.
Reduce the risk of diabetes: It has been discovered that walnuts, as part of a healthy diet, may help manage diabetes and metabolic syndrome. A study representing more than 34,000 American adults suggests those who consume walnuts may have about half the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, compared to adults who do not eat nuts.
Here are some quick hacks to add walnuts: blend into smoothies, toss into salads, grind and drop into curries and tikkas, coat meat for that extra crunch and make it the go-to snack.
