Visitor Questions
Q Nutrition experts tout walnuts as a good source of Omega 3's, but overlook the great amount of Omega 6's in walnuts. Would not that offset some of the anti-inflammatory effects of walnuts?

Just because a food naturally contains a higher ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fats doesn't mean it should be avoided. If you are eating a whole foods plant based diet that includes fish/seafood without an excess of processed foods and vegetable oils then you shouldn't be concerned about eating too much omega-6 fats. Importantly, studies show that walnuts (in spite of the high omega-6 to omega-3 ratio) do exhibit anti-inflammatory effects. Walnuts are unique in their collection of anti-inflammatory nutrients. These nutrients include omega-3 fatty acids; phytonutrients including tannins, phenolic acids, and flavonoids; quinones like juglone; and other anti-inflammatory phytonutrients. You can learn more about the health benefits of Walnuts on our website.
