Wal­nuts are an ex­cel­lent source of an­tiox­i­dants and are higher in es­sen­tial fatty acid omega-3 than any other nut. They also con­tain iron, se­le­nium, cal­cium, zinc, vi­ta­min E and some B vi­ta­mins, as well as polyphe­nols. These help to re­duce in­flam­ma­tion, which is at the root of many health prob­lems, such as heart dis­ease, can­cer and Type 2 di­a­betes. Re­search also sug­gests that reg­u­lar in­clu­sion of wal­nuts in the diet can help to pre­serve phys­i­cal mo­bil­ity and brain func­tion in later life and lower harm­ful choles­terol lev­els.
