Monday “Did you know…?” Are you nuts?
Which nut has the highest anti-oxidant power? The popular almond, cashew, peanut, pecan? No, the Walnut. Is that weird? Yeah, totally nuts.
“Vinson also found that the quality, or potency, of antioxidants present in walnuts was highest among the nuts. Antioxidants in walnuts were 2-15 times as potent as vitamin E, renowned for its powerful antioxidant effects that protect the body against damaging natural chemicals involved in causing disease.” (see article here)
Be that as it may, any nut is a great addition to your diet. They provide protein for muscle and plenty of fat to power your body through workouts!
