Each walnut you crack open and eat contains loads of vitamins, phenolic acids, tannins, and flavonoids, as well as those hard-to-find omega-3 fatty acids, with almost 90% of the phenols being found in the skin. This array of compounds contributes to heart health, works to prevent cancer, helps fight diabetes, improves cognitive function, and may even help with a better night’s sleep. While many nuts have proven to be extremely beneficial to your health, studies are showing that eating a handful of walnuts contains almost twice as many antioxidants as an equivalent amount of any other commonly consumed nut. Over the course of this article, we’ll demon- strate through scientific studies how adding a few handfuls of walnuts to your daily diet can greatly improve your health.
