The Walnuts of Winter


Walnuts. Brain food extraordinaire. In their shell they truly resemble the human brain, don't they? Thus, is it more than mere coincidence they are actually good for your brain?

Current Science

Walnuts contain a number of neuroprotective compounds, including vitamin E, folate, melatoninomega-3 fats, and antioxidants. Research shows walnut consumption may support brain health, improving cognitive performance in adults and preventing or improving age-related cognitive decline. We can’t promise you’ll win that chess game later today but eating a cup of walnuts on your office break probably can’t hurt.

A Cup of Walnuts for Your Kidney & Your Cough

In traditional Chinese medicine, walnuts function to tonify the kidneys, nourish the blood and warm the lungs. Walnuts are often prescribed to relieve coughing and to improve memory. It's even been said they help prevent gray hairs.  Who knew?
