One of the best, healthiest, and most nutritious, and not to mention, tastiest snacks of all are nuts and seeds. Nuts and seeds have a vast array of health benefits. Not only do nuts and seeds contain vitamins, minerals, and fiber, but they also contain other chemicals and can turn down cancer, heart disease, and obesity. They are rich sources of protein, omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, and vitamins and minerals. Even though nuts and seeds are high in fat, they can fight off hunger and cause those to eat less of high-fat, high calorie greasy junk food. One particular nut that can be very beneficial are walnuts.
Walnuts have many health benefits. Walnuts contain high amounts of omega 3 fatty acids, which can boost heart health and lower triglycerides. Other walnut health benefits include high amounts of minerals (like magnesium), improved cholesterol levels, healthy brain function, protected bone health, and improved sleep, just to name a few. One other promising health benefit of walnuts is in the fact that walnuts contain the amino acid l-arginine. A strong health benefit to l-arginine is that it is necessary for the body in producing nitric oxide, which relaxes and enlarges blood vessels, keeps blood vessels flexible, improves blood flow, and thus, helps hypertension.
If you currently take L-Arginine Plus, or are considering the use of L-Arginine Plus, consider supplementing walnuts, as well as other nuts and seeds, into your diet. These can bring great benefits to your health and in the case of walnuts, can help high blood pressure.
