Walnut Consumption Is Shown to Protect Cognitive Health
Now think about a handful of walnuts a day. There's so much in them!
“Greater walnut consumption is associated with participant characteristics that are known to be associated with better cognitive health, as well as nutrients, including Omega-3 fatty acids, which are unique to walnuts. And they helps with the neuro-protective effect or benefit,” Sloan said.
“So it's really showing that as people age, if they're already eating walnuts, they will have good cognitive function. And as they continue to age, and other studies that are showing that it may prevent the onset of cognitive decline,” noted Sloan. “So again, if you bundle this with the other studies that the industry has supported, I think it's very clear that eating walnuts can help you have a better quality of life and cognitive function, as we age,” she said.
