Walnuts are good for our health, especially for the better work of the brain. They contain omega 3 fatty acids which are considering that they have an extra role in the immune system. Also, they have a big anti-inflammatory effect, because of the omega 3. Usually, we consume Omega-6 while the Omega-3 is somehow forgotten. Omega-6 is pro-inflammatory and it may cause low-grade inflammation in the body. Elson Haas, MD, author of The False Fat Diet says that the inflammation prompts the oxidizing of the LDL or bad cholesterol, which leads to a heart issue. https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/73258/the-false-fat-diet-by-elson-m-haas-md-and-cameron-stauth/
Besides, Omega-3 counteracts the damage of Omega-6 and prevents oxidation of LDL cholesterol. So is good to have them approximately 30 gr in a day. The recommendation is to consume them raw, not toasted because roasting temperature destroys omega-3. If you want a toasted taste, soak them in water, leave overnight, and use a dehydrator. And in a combo with potatoes which are rich in potassium, phosphorus, and magnesium you will intake almost of your daily recommendation needs for those important minerals in this walnut spread.
