"A handful of walnuts contain almost twice as much antioxidant 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," said study author Joe Vinson, Ph.D.
A big advantage of eating walnuts is that they are generally raw and the nutrients which are lost from roasting or other processing doesn’t happen with walnuts. Even though they are high in calories they don’t contribute much to weight gain as they tend to satisfy hunger pangs.
So, if you feel like a snack during the day grab a walnut!
