Walnuts are called brain food and not without reason. Nearly 60% of our brain structure comprises of Omega 3 fatty acids which are found in walnuts that nourish dry skin and improves its texture. Walnuts are also instrumental in promoting cardiovascular health.

Walnuts are one of the healthiest nuts which are full of good fats and nutrients. Mix a handful of walnuts with 3 tablespoons of yoghurt and blend it. Apply this scrub on your face daily for smooth and soft skin. Walnut, if used in the form of oil, contains linoleic acid, which prevents wrinkles and fine lines.

Eating 2.5 ounces(1 ounce-28.34 g)  of walnuts per day improves semen quality in healthy young men, researchers say. According to a study by UCLA researchers, eating 75 grams of walnuts a day improves the vitality, motility, and morphology of sperm in healthy men aged 21 to 35.

Eating about 28 walnut halves a day provides antioxidants and phytosterols that may help reduce the risk of breast cancer.

Eating a handful of walnuts just thrice a week is the key to a longer life, a study has found. Scientists discovered that these edible seeds cut the risk of dying from cancer by 40 per cent and from cardiovascular disease by at least 55 per cent. In general, nut eaters in the research had a 39 per cent lesser risk of death and walnut eaters in particular a 45 per cent reduced threat.

The nuts can improve sleep, as they contain hormone melatonin, that induces sleep and helps regulate sleep. This makes walnuts a great evening or bedtime snack for improving your sleep.
