A mainstay of my dietary recommendations, walnuts are an excellent choice when it comes to healthy snacking. Walnuts are good sources of:
- Omega-3 fatty acids, protective fats that may promote cardiovascular health, help maintain optimal cognitive function, and tone down inflammation.
- Heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.
- Ellagic acid, an antioxidant compound that helps support a healthy immune system.
- L-arginine, an essential amino acid that promotes healthy blood pressure.
Try adding walnuts to your hot or cold breakfast cereals, eat them as a snack, use walnut oil in salad dressings, and add to pie crusts for a nutritional boost.
Everyone's dietary needs are different based on a number of factors including lifestyle, diet, medications and more. To find out what vitamins you need, take the Weil Vitamin Advisor.
