inflammatory action helps to lower the risk of blood pressure, coronary artery disease, strokes and 

breast, colon and prostate cancers.

A Few Walnuts A Day

levels of popyphenolic antioxidants than any other common edible nuts. 100 g of walnuts contain 

13541 µmol TE (Trolex equivalents) of oxidant radical absorbance capacity (ORAC). Eating as few as six to 

seven average sized nuts a day could help fight off disease causing free radicals from the body.

required for maintaining the integrity of cell membrane of mucus membranes and skin by protecting it from 

harmful oxygen free radicals.
