Walnut kernels are rich in fat, protein, mineral elements and vitamins, with a fat content of 60% to 70%. Protein contains a variety of amino acids that are beneficial to human health. Among them, 8 kinds of amino acids necessary for the human body are complete and high in content, walnut kernels The content of unsaturated fatty acids in the extracted Pure Walnut Oil is significantly higher than that of ordinary edible oils.
Therefore, Pure Walnut Oil is very popular in the international market, and NASA also designated it as food for astronauts, which has been widely recognized by European and American countries.
Internationally, the content of two essential fatty acids, linoleic acid and linolenic acid, is usually used as an important indicator to measure the nutritional value of oil. There have been many reports on the specific functions of unsaturated fatty acids such as linoleic acid, linolenic acid and oleic acid. A number of studies have shown that the unscientific ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 intake is an important pathogenic factor for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, diabetes, kidney deficiency, allergic diseases and cancer. A balanced intake of omega-6 and omega-3 in the diet is essential to prevent modern lifestyle diseases. Therefore, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) proposed that the appropriate ratio of ω-6/ω-3 fatty acids in the diet is (5-10): 1. In 2000, Japan proposed a higher recommended value. 4:1, walnut oil is generally 4:1, which meets this standard. long
Consuming Pure Walnut Oil can protect bone metabolism, promote healthy bone growth, enhance health, attenuate neurodegeneration and slow tumor cell growth, while improving blood lipid levels and reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes in patients with type 2 diabetes.
The flavonoids in Pure Walnut Oil can improve symptoms such as headache, tinnitus, vertigo, relieve depression or ease tension, and inhibit LDL (low density cholesterol) oxidation. The rich phospholipids in walnut oil can enhance cell activity, promote hematopoiesis, make skin smooth and delicate, accelerate wound healing and hair growth, and protect the function of cranial nerves. Walnut oil is also rich in vitamin E, which plays an important role in scavenging free radicals, softening blood vessels, preventing the formation of lipofuscin pigments, slowing down the production of “life spots” and delaying aging. Studies have shown that Pure Walnut Oil has a strong antioxidant function. Compared with other oils, its ability to scavenge free radicals is: Pure Walnut Oil > almond oil > peanut oil > sesame oil > linseed oil > olive oil.
