Benefits of Walnuts for Women
Walnuts are a small but mighty power food that can substantially impact a woman’s health. While the food is an exceptional choice for anyone, a few benefits are particularly applicable to females.
- Breast Cancer
- Maternal Health
- Mental Health
Breast Cancer – In a small trial study, two servings of walnuts per day, two ounces, minimized the growth and development of breast cancer in existing breast cancer patients. For a confident certainty, more research is needed, but this trial is definitely promising!
Aging Healthily – Another promising area of walnuts for women is healthier aging. Regular consumption of two servings of walnuts per week during late middle age correlates to a lack of lifestyle-related illnesses or cognitive decline after age 65.
Maternal Health – Expectant mothers who regularly consume walnuts as part of a Mediterranean diet gain less weight and have a lower propensity for gestational diabetes, even when they have definite risk factors for developing health issues during pregnancy.
Mental Health – Studies have demonstrated that a single ounce of walnuts per day can alleviate hopelessness in women and enhance interest, energy, concentration, and optimism. Considering the gender disparity in depression, this factor is critical for women as they deal with the struggles of daily life and their effect on mental wellness.
Correlations Don’t Equal Causation
These exciting findings regarding women’s health benefits from walnuts come with a caveat. A relationship doesn’t always indicate cause and effect. These tests focused solely on women, but the relationship could be due to other factors. One fact remains true; however, walnuts were the common factor among all studies and benefits, and the food provides a wealth of nutrition in a tiny package.
Ultimately, walnuts are a stellar choice for snacking and cooking – nutritious, affordable, and convenient.
