1. High quality oil for losing weight


70% of walnut constituent is fats and 100g Walnut contains 673 kilocalories. You might be worried having walnuts leads to getting fat, but you don’t have to worry about that because fats of walnuts have no cholesterol.

Fats are roughly divided into saturated fatty acid and unsaturated fatty acid. Meat or dairy products contain much of saturated fatty acid and which produce much energy. But taking too much of it increases neutral fat and cholesterol and leads to life style diseases like hardening of arteries.

Blue fish or nuts contain much of unsaturated fatty acid. Unsaturated fatty acid walnuts contain is omega-3 fatty acid and alpha-linelenic acid. No other nuts than walnuts have much of the acid

Omega-3 fatty acid has an effect of decrease in cholesterol and neutral fat, and which leads to obesity prevention by burning excessive fats.

 

2. Good for the skin


As I said in the article, walnuts contain much of omega-3 acid. You cannot produce the acid by yourselves so you have to take the acid every day by food.

Just having 30g of walnuts a day is enough to take omega-3 fatty acid you should take. And omega-3 fatty acid has effect for making beautiful skin because it keeps firm skin and improves blood circulation.

There are many women who suffer from constipation. People who carry out a dietary restriction tend to get constipated because they rarely take carbohydrates. Constipation leads to rough skin so you should improve constipation.

People tend to think having much of dietary fiber like konjyak or vegetables would be good for constipation improvement. In fact, oils are essential for constipation cure because oils have an effect of making defecation smooth.

If you would have only dietary fiber and lessened oils, your constipation would get worsen. Walnuts contain both oils and dietary fibers so much that they have a good effect for constipation improvement. So having proper amount of walnuts leads to regular motions.

 

4. Having walnuts between meals for anti-aging


Oxidization and saccharification in the body is a main cause of aging. Oxidization is the process which active oxygen oxidizes fats in the body and deteriorates cells. But a study has shown recently that saccharification promotes aging more than oxidization does.

Saccharification is a process that sugar combines with protein and turns into senescence accelerating substances called AGE which leads to sags or wrinkles.

In addition to carbohydrate centered eating habits, having cakes or ice creams between meals accelerates saccharification. Having walnuts between meals is a custom of beauties. Since walnuts are chewy and filing, you can prevent eating too much with them.

 

5. Cancer and lifestyle disease prevention


You could not be a beautiful woman if you only care about your appearance and never care about the health. Walnuts have an effect of making healthy blood and hardening arteries prevention because they make blood vessels elastic and which leads to preventing a heart attack or a stroke.

Walnuts also have an effect of decrease in bad cholesterol and increase in good cholesterol, so you can prevent excessive fat in blood too. And walnuts are effective for osteoporpsis because they make bones or tooth strong.

Recent study has shown that walnuts have effect of slowing down the progress of prostatic cancer and breast cancer. And walnuts have also effect of reducing risk of type 2 diabetes. Let’s have some walnuts to live a healthy life without cancer or lifestyle diseases.

 

6. Activate the brain


Criteria of Miss Universe are not only looks but also inner beauty like intelligence or refinement.

Alpha-Linolenic acid which is a kind of omega-3 fatty acid has an effect of fixing brain cells and activating the brain so walnuts can improve perception, ratiocinative power and memory. So walnuts are said to be a brain food.

A study shows that walnuts have effect of improving Alzheimer. To be an intelligent and beautiful woman, for Alzheimer prevention, walnuts are essential food.

 

7. Sound sleep and mental stability


Walnuts are nutritious because they contain vitamin A, B1, B2, E, calcium, iron phosphorus, magnesium copper and zinc. Vitamin B and omega-3 fatty acid has an effect of relieving stress and preventing depression.

And walnuts contain also a hormone called melatonin which promotes a good sleep so I recommend people who cannot get sound sleep should have some walnuts.

Shortage of sleep leads to rough skin and sickness so you should improve it as soon as possible. Besides, walnuts are filing, so I recommend that people who are going on a diet should have some walnuts with a hot drink when they are too hungry to sleep.

 

How was that?

I introduced 7 reasons why a beauty takes walnuts nutrition actively. Although walnuts are not common food in Japan, some celebrities and people who are interested in the healthy products have become eating walnuts every day in Europe and America.
