-Walnuts are rich in B vitamins.  Among these are pantothenic acid, riboflavin, folates, and niacin.  B vitamins help the body manage energy levels and build new blood cells.

-Walnuts are loaded with omega 3 essential fatty acids.  Just 25 grams of walnut will yield about 90% of your daily need for omega 3 fats.  These fatty acids are absolutely crucial for good health and not only help to manage blood pressure but can also naturally prevent heart disease by lowering bad cholesterol and raising good cholesterol levels in the body.

Walnuts are a great brain food!:

-Walnut oil can be used to help the skin.  It has astringent properties and can also protect against dryness.

-Walnuts are packed with phytonutrients that could boost the overall antioxidant properties of these nuts.  Included are vitamin E, melatonin, carotenoids, and poly-phenolic compounds which could be effective against cancer, inflammation, aging, and neurological disorders.

-Walnuts have a great amount of vitamin E.  Vitamin E helps prevent damage to cells in the body by guarding against oxygen free radicals.
