Did you ever notice how much a walnut looks like a brain? Maybe because they can help  reduce oxidative damage and inflammation in our brains. Brain function, learning skills and memory are all helped by just 1-1.5 ounces daily.

Sliced sideways, they look like a heart! Our bodies love them because they can help reduce anxiety and may help lower high blood pressure.

Walnuts help control blood sugar which is linked to lowering risk of type 2 diabetes. In just 1 to 5 days,  1.75 ounces daily helped decrease hunger and appetite and increase resistance to junk foods.

Walnuts are packed with essential vitamins, minerals, fiber, fats and plant compounds. All of which support good physical functioning as we age.
