Walnuts – packed with GOOD fats!

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.
