7 Walnuts a Day

By on June 19, 2013

Not all nuts are considered equal. Walnuts may be considered the king of nuts for health benefits, with a  combination of more healthful andhigher quality antioxidants, according to U.S. researchers  say.

“Walnuts rank above peanuts, almonds, pecans, pistachios and other nuts,” Joe  Vinson of the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania said in a statement. “A  handful of walnuts contains almost twice as much antioxidants as an equivalent  amount of any other commonly consumed nut. But unfortunately, people don’t eat a  lot of them. This study suggests that consumers should eat more walnuts as part  of a healthy diet.”

Research has found consumption of small amounts of nuts or peanut butter is  linked to decreased risk of heart disease, certain kinds of cancer, gallstones,  type 2 diabetes and other health problems.

Antioxidants in walnuts were two to 15 times as potent as vitamin E —  renowned for its powerful antioxidant effects, which protect the body against  damaging natural chemicals involved in causing disease, Vinson says.
