Walnuts contain essential fatty acids, or ‘EFAs’, which are needed to
support great health.
The body cannot make them itself and therefore we must include EFAs in our diet,
preferably replacing unhealthy fats such as margarines, or hydrogenated fats which
are often found in processed foods.
EFAs support adrenal and thyroid activity which in turn supports a healthy immune
response. As well as supporting the nervous system they also promote healthy blood,
arteries, and help to regulate cholesterol, therefore benefiting the cardiovascular
system. They also help promote youthful skin and hair. EFAs are thought to reduce
inflammation and so can support people with inflammatory conditions such as
asthma, arthritis or eczema.
