Why we should not remove walnuts from our diet

Walnuts are rich in omega-3s, they help regulate intestinal transit and even help our skin

All nuts (not roasted, not with salt or sugar) are the perfect addition to our diet, since we are faced with a food full of healthy fats that help everything work “like a good gear.” And, within the list of these foods, walnuts are one of the nuts with the most benefits.

Walnuts, synonymous with a balanced diet

Nuria Fernández, nutritionist at the Metropolitan Centers, lists the general benefits of walnuts:

They promote muscle relaxation, thanks to the minerals that compose them, which intervene in the transmission of the nerve impulse and act as an antioxidant, preventing oxidative stress. This makes them ideal for athletes.

They have vascular benefits, given by the amino acid L-arginine, which contributes to reducing the risk of heart disease.

They are anti-inflammatory, thanks to the omega-3 fats of vegetable origin.

They restore the moisture of the skin, due to the presence of Vitamin E in its composition.

They regulate intestinal transit, due to their contribution of fibers that fight constipation.
