“25 walnuts have the antioxidant equivalent of 8 grams of vitamin C (the vitamin C found in a hundred oranges).” – Micheal Greger M.D.
Nuts are nutritional badasses because they are the source of a wide range of important nutrients:
- unsaturated fatty acids
- B and E vitamins
- Minerals such as copper, magnesium, potassium, & zinc
Walnuts and pecans are top of the list because they are the best source of disease-fighting antioxidants.
