Walnuts were traditionally considered "brain food" due to their resemblance to the brain and it turns out they're rich in healthy omega-3 fatty acids (as ALA - alpha-linolenic acid), vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that can, in fact, help support healthy brain function.
Additionally, walnuts possess natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may help protect your cardiovascular system, support normal healthy immune function, bone health, metabolism and sleep. They're also a good source of protein, fiber, Vitamin E (as gamma-tocopherol), biotin, copper, manganese and magnesium.
