Ukrainian nuts are recognized for their nutritional qualities.

Ukrainian nuts come from a healthy environment, free of toxic products. Many consider them to be the most beneficial for health. And they are right.

But let's see this article written by: Weber Lee,Ellen Wan and Harry McKenny

"Walnuts can help prevent cardiovascular disease, as further confirmed by a new study published in Nutrition, Metabolism & Cardiovascular Diseases. Young people who eat walnuts regularly are more likely to maintain better physical health in middle age, less likely to be obese, nd have a lower risk of contracting cardiovascular disease, researchers found.

In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), it is believed that walnuts can nourish the kidneys, refresh the brain, and prolong life. Numerous scientific studies have also confirmed some of these protective effects.Walnuts Lower Risk for Cardiovascular Disease

From 1985, the researchers tracked the eating habits of 3,092 healthy young adults—aged 18 to 30—for 20 years and recorded their health indexes over a span of 30 years.

Participants were separated into three groups—walnut eaters, those who ate other nuts, and those who did not eat nuts.

The study found that participants who ate walnuts during their younger years had better physical health indexes than those who did not. They had lower indexes in parameters such as body weight, waistline, blood pressure, and triglyceride levels—all of which affect cardiovascular disease risk.

Although the study demonstrated that eating nuts other than walnuts is also beneficial, the walnut eaters were less likely to be obese than those who ate other nuts.

After 30 years, the walnut-only eaters had lower body mass index (BMI), a less visible waistline, and better weight index ​​than those who ate other nuts—which put them at a lower risk for cardiovascular disease than those who ate other nuts."
