Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:An all-inclusive systemmic healthy supplement to every blood-type !
Cons:Sometimes, a shell hull is empty or rotted.
The Bottom Line: A fast, delicious snack on the go or to make a menu unique and tasty, this nut is brain food !
How do I get my much needed Omega 3’s so my little brain can process information better? Well I consume a few handfuls per week of little miniature brain hemispheres ! Not for real, but the nut called a walnut resembles our two lobes of either side of our head complete with a corpus collossum (the middle lining between the two hemispheres) when the exterior hard shell is removed. Oddly shaped but perfect for that organ as well as other body systems which benefit from Omega 3 infusions.

The walnut, native nut of California and United Kingdom, and other generally warm and wet climates is hard on the outside while the inner contents is gently crunchy and velvety smooth when chewed. Although these nuts are harvested during high winter seasons, they are available all year round to put into everything from oatmeal to brownies to cakes to stews to salads and of course, any and all desserts that require a nutty rich pleasant flavor.
There is 94.6% of the daily recommended allowance of Omega 3 fatty acids in the whole bag but ¼ cup provides 90.8% of this important fatty acid that is crucial for excellent memory recall, reduction of harmful decay within the cardiovascular system, increase of elasticity of skin, muscles and nerve sheaths plus in the overall functioning of the body, it is a perfect food.
There is also manganese, copper and tryptophan in walnuts as well as 163 calories pr serving, usually a ¼ cup or 30 grams. The special type of protective fat the body cannot manufacture is found in this nut found on very ornamental trees of elegant stature. In addition, walnuts contain an antioxidant compound called ellagic acid that supports the immune system and appears to have several anticancer properties.(1)
In a 16oz (1lb) bag of shelled walnuts one can find several menu options and very few calories. Although all blood types are able to digest this nut accordingly, some AB+ may have trouble with the richness and their gastrointestinal tract may hate them in the morning. Also there is a dense-amount of good fat that promotes the lowering of some bad cholesterol levels; therefore the high cholesterol reading indicates that most of it is the good kind.
The Grower Direct Nut Co., operating out of Hughson California provides a natural treat that holds 210 calories of which 180 are fat calories; the total fat content 20g is 31%, the saturated fat 1.5 g is 8%, Cholesterol 0mg is 0%, Sodium 0mg is 0%, Potassium 135mg is 4%, Total carbohydrates 3g is 1%, dietary fiber 3g is 14%, sugars 0g is 0%, protein 5g is 3%. There is 0% of both Vitamin A and C but 2% calcium and 6% iron. Those nutrition facts are based upon 16 servings roughly 30grams each.
It is unfortunate though that something so healthy for all of the blood types, and O-types should get the most of these and exercise for a healthy and wealthy outlook, is really quite expensive. This 1lb bag I got cost almost $8.oo and with that price, I can only get a bag once per month. I look for cheaper prices but you can also get yucky quality so I stick with the higher priced for the best, even in this economy.
So what are you waiting for ? Go buy some walnuts and be brain-erized -- that’s energized from the brain on down !
