There are many benefits of walnuts for your body that we all ought to know about.
But our busy lifestyle means that we do not always hear what some of these dried ingredients can do for us.
In the last couple of years, we have seen an increase in the number of shops offering different nuts options.
Some of them offer a mixture of nuts in one bag, while others offer a single nut type in their packaging.
And it is left to us, poor consumers to define what to eat and why to eat it.
Just look at the packaging, you seldom find why some nuts are good for you.
And that is why today, I want to ensure you get some information about one of my favorite nut.
Below I summarise some of the benefits of walnuts for your benefits.
What is walnut good for?
Walnuts are good for hundreds of things. But four of the most important benefits of walnut can be summarised as:
- Avoid brain degeneration through age
- Protect your heart
- Support weight loss
- Take care of your hair, nail, and skin
The above are just some of the benefits of walnuts.
In fact, walnuts are one of the best ingredients on the planet earth.
They have been scientifically proven to have a prominent active substance to enhance your overall wellbeing.
That is why it is highly advisable to incorporate walnuts into your daily diet regimen.
Look, these are not simply nuts. They are full of highly essential nutrients that you need for your body to function well.
All of these substances in one single small nut. So they are bound to have some nice positive effect on your body.
What are the health benefits of walnuts
There are various health benefits of walnuts. But the one that is the most known for is related to weight loss.
And that is true. In fact, the consumption of only a handful of walnuts a day can enable you to lose weight.
And by doing so, you get the reward of the other benefits.
It is like throwing one stone and hitting many benefits (and not birds).
1- Protect Your Brain from Age-Related Degeneration
We all have heard that salmon is one of the best sources for Omega-3.
But how many of us have ever heard that walnuts are also one of the greatest sources of omega-3 fatty acids?
I guess very few.
And how many of us know that these Omegas have a unique ability to protect you against various brain disorders and diseases?
These include ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), depression, and even cancer.
2- Heart Health benefits of walnuts
It has been scientifically proven that the regular consumption of walnuts enhances your cardiovascular health. (2)
Simply put, walnuts contain a high level of antioxidants.
And these are necessary for fighting against harmful free radicals.
If you do not know about free radicals, let me remind you that they can cause heart disease and degeneration, and even cancer.
So if you can get rid of them, or as I call it “flush them out of your body” using some natural substance, then run and get that substance right now.
In fact, the NHS (National Health Service in the UK) has published an article alerting us that eating a handful of walnuts in a day can reduce the risk of heart disease. (3)
But they are studies that show that there are benefits of walnut oil too. So, if you do not like eating walnuts, you may use the oil instead.
3- Weight loss benefits of walnuts
This is why people buy walnuts.
The reality is that I use my own walnuts. I have a tree in my garden that provides me with about 20 kg of walnuts a year.
It is not enough for our consumption, but at least I eat these daily. Just a couple is enough.
Now, the substance that makes you loose weight is the polyunsaturated fats.
What is important to know about this type of fat is that it has the ability to prevent the arteries from clogging.
Yes, it is one type of good fat substance fighting the bad fat substance.
You’ll find that many people who eat walnuts on a regular basis will have bad cholesterol. And bad cholesterol is what clog your arteries.
So, you get rid of bad fat and you lose weight too. What else do you want?
But one of the things that I like the most with walnuts is their ability to make you feel full for a longer period of time.
Feeling full means that you do not crave for eating, and if you do not crave you do not consume, and as such you lose weight. (4)
By the way, here is how a walnut looks like on a tree:
4- Strengthen Your Hair, Nails, and Skin
The different nutrients that you find in the walnuts are highly beneficial to your hair, nails, and skin. (5)
Obviously, the combination of the high content omega-3 fatty acids and polyunsaturated fats means that your body will evacuate bad cholesterol and that your blood will be able to transport more oxygen to the right places.
As such, the walnuts will support a shinier hair, strengthen your nails, and make your skin nicer looking and smoother.
5- A secret libido recipe
For centuries, my family has been using this recipe to support men’s libido.

And the recipe is simple.
You take some Honey and some walnuts.
You mix these and eat them daily for a couple of days.
Your libido will change dramatically. This is a guaranteed result if you can stand eating this for days.
It is a really tasty mixture and a bit sweet. So you do not need too much of it. 1 teaspoon a day should do the trick.
Here it is. You have different reasons why you should eat at least 20 grams of walnuts a day.
This is not much in the scheme of things.

And you’ll get all of the deserved rewards from this little nut.
You’ll lose weight, you’ll reduce the risk of mental degeneration, you’ll improve your heart functioning, and you’ll get some nice and polished nails, hair, and skin.
