Antioxidants

Walnuts contain a variety of antioxidants.

Walnuts offer a variety of antioxidants. According to an evidence-based review, antioxidants help to protect from certain chronic diseases of aging, including cardiovascular, neurological and anticarcinogenic ailments due to their ability to control free radicals, known to negatively influence healthy aging. 

Alpha-Linolenic Acid (Omega-3)

Unique among nuts, walnuts contain the highest amount of ALA.

Unique among nuts, walnuts contain the highest amount of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), the plant-based omega-3 essential fatty acid, required by the human body. As one of the best plant food sources of omega-3s, a one-ounce serving of walnuts provides 2.5 grams of ALA. A growing body of scientific evidence is beginning to uncover a variety of benefits that ALA/omega-3s may provide to our bodies. While most nuts contain monounsaturated fats, only walnuts are comprised primarily of polyunsaturated fat (13 grams out of 18 grams total fat). Dietary guidelines recommend that people keep total fat intake between 20 to 35 percent of calories, with most fats coming from sources of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids.


Protein, Fiber, Magnesium And Phosphorous

Walnuts can help Americans get these important components of a healthy diet.

In addition to antioxidants and essential ALA/omega-3 fatty acids, an ounce of walnuts provides a convenient source of protein (4 grams) and fiber (2 grams). Most Americans don't get enough dietary fiber which promotes healthy bowel function and helps you feel full — a key component in maintaining a healthy weight. Walnuts are also a good source of magnesium (44 mg/oz) and phosphorus (98 mg/oz) – both important minerals involved in the body's processes and necessary for achieving optimal wellness.
