Fresh, tasty walnuts
Healthy with walnuts: Walnuts contain essential fatty acids (especially linoleic acid), which are important for your health because they reduce the risk of heart disease. The acids lower the level of LDL cholesterol in the blood. LDL cholesterol is also responsible for arteriosclerosis, one of the most common causes of cardiovascular disease. Just five walnut kernels a day cover the recommended daily intake of linoleic acid and help regulate blood lipid levels and blood pressure. In addition, walnuts contain important minerals such as iron, selenium and zinc and plenty of vitamin E and B.
