Prof. Dr. Behind Canan Karatay’s suggestion of consuming walnuts instead of bread, there are many positive effects of walnuts on health. Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and folic acid contained in walnuts help improve brain functions and also positively affect heart health. The study in England also emphasized that walnuts have benefits such as protecting heart health, lowering blood pressure and reducing cholesterol levels.
