Walnuts Antioxidants For Your Brain

Your brain is a wonderful powerhouse for your body. It controls so many functions and requires so many resources to do so. At rest, up to 20% of your metabolism is due to brain activity alone. Now imagine that you are thinking deeply, talking, or doing something physical.

Your brain's high metabolism creates lots of reactive free radicals that your body naturally fights with antioxidant compounds to achieve a comfortable healthy balance. However, as we age, this balance can become more focused on oxidation (i.e. free radical damage) and inflammation. And that's why consuming antioxidants from whole food sources like walnuts is so important.

Research has shown that older people who eat more nuts appear to have a higher cognitive function and a slower decline in cognitive function over the years.

Walnuts have also been shown to be heart-healthy, and heart health is linked to brain health. When you reduce risk factors for cardiovascular disease, you also reduce risk factors for cerebrovascular disease such as stroke and cognitive impairment.

Therefore, nutritious foods like raw walnuts, which are full of brain fat and have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, play an important role in reducing the risk and development of many chronic and debilitating diseases of the brain and body.
