Walnuts are an amazing powerhouse of a nut! Walnuts have long been regarded a brain food, containing essential fatty acids such as alpha-linolenic acid, and omega fatty acids necessary for proper brain function. Coincidentally, the surface structure has an appearance like that of a brain. Rich in Vitamins C, B and E, they also contain a variety of essential minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc.
