Walnuts have a wealth of the good kind of fats:
Walnuts are round, single-seeded stone fruits that grow from the walnut tree.
They are a good source of healthful fats (polyunsaturated fats, which are better for you than saturated fats) protein, and fiber; they also have a high amount of omega-3 fatty acids.
They may enhance heart and bone health and help in weight management, among other benefits –
Studies have shown that eating walnuts can help lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol in particular, but also lower your cholesterol overall.
Walnuts are a good source of the mineral copper.
Copper also plays an important role in the maintenance of collagen and elastin, major structural components of the body.
Walnuts have higher antioxidant activity than any other common nut, this activity comes from vitamin E, melatonin and plant compounds called polyphenols, which are particularly high in the papery skin of walnuts.
