Researchers are convinced, more than ever before, about the nutritional benefits of walnuts when consumed in whole form, including the skin. Walnuts are great for cardiovascular benefits,help reduce problems in metabolic syndrome, benefits in treatment of Type 2 Diabetes, anti-cancer benefits, anti-inflammatory benefits, and bone health. Walnuts have also produced a good track record in the research as a desirable food for support of weight loss and for prevention of obesity. That finding often surprises people because they think of high-fat, high-calorie foods as a primary contributing factor to obesity and to weight gain. In general, overconsumption of high-fat, high-calorie foods is a primary contributing factor to obesity and weight gain.
