Health Benefits of Eating Walnuts

Did you know that eating walnuts can help your heart? They contain unsaturated fatty acids and other nutrients (vitamin E, folate, melatonin, omega-3 fats, and antioxidants) that research shows may also contribute to brain health.

So how many nuts a day is recommended?  Again, research show that one ounce of tree nuts per day is the minimal amount needed to provide significant benefits. (For walnuts, that translates to about 7 shelled walnuts or 14 walnut halves).
