Walnuts As Antioxidants

A couple of new scientific studies put walnuts at the top position among a family of foods that represent antioxidants for healthy heart. "Walnuts rank above peanuts, almonds, pecans, pistachios and other nuts," said Joe Vinson, Ph.D., who did the analysis.

Vinson noted that nuts generally have an unusual mixture of nutritional benefits, in addition those antioxidants, wrapped into a convenient and inexpensive package.

Scientists until now had never compared both the amount and quality of antioxidants found in different nuts, Vinson said. He filled that knowledge gap by analyzing antioxidants in various different kinds of nuts: walnuts, Brazil nuts, cashews, almonds, peanuts and others. Walnuts had the highest levels of antioxidants.

Vinson also noticed that the quality, or potency, of antioxidants present in walnuts was highest among the family of nuts. Antioxidants in walnuts were many times as potent as vitamin E, renowned for its powerful effects that protect the body against damaging chemicals involved in causing disease.
