“Ayurveda 8”, Yoga Chuck’s Ayurveda Series.


Walnuts are rich in nutrients with amazing health benefits!

Eating walnuts is an Ayurveda practice I'm doing daily. I've always disliked the bitter taste (the skin) of walnuts. So I chop them and add to my oatmeal, trail mix and any other foods that go well with walnuts.

Walnuts are loaded with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. The omega-3, alpha linolenic acid (ALA) converts to heart and brain healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

Walnuts have a high polyphenol content. They have been shown to support a healthy heart, vascular, nerve, bone, blood sugar and brain health. The thin skin that wraps the walnut stores most of the polyphenols.
Studies have shown that a diet rich in walnuts produce lower LDL cholesterol levels. Walnuts are also high in vitamin E, known for cardiovascular health.

Phytonutrient research on the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits of walnuts protects against metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular problems, and type 2 diabetes. And helps decrease the risk of certain cancers that include prostate and breast cancer.

The walnut looks a lot like our brains and are known for helping with our cognitive function (great brain food). I should eat a lot more!

They can last as long as 6 months when refrigerated. Go nuts on Walnuts!

Happy & Healthy,
Yoga Chuck
