New study find that walnuts rank highest in antioxidant content among common nut

For those who are eager to include more antioxidants in their diet, they may consider adding a range of healthy foods to their diet to increase their levels of these beneficial nutrients. According to recent research from the University of Scranton, walnuts ranked highest in antioxidants compared to all the other common commercial nuts on the market.

“A handful of walnuts has almost twice the antioxidant content as an equivalent amount of any other commonly consumed nut,” said Professor Joseph Vinson with the department of chemistry at the University of Scranton.

Walnuts have elevated levels of polyphenols, which are antioxidants that target LDL cholesterol, as well as being able to fight a number of heart-related ailments. They are also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which play an important role in improving cardiovascular health. Whether added to a salad or eaten as a snack, Dr. Vinson says people would be “nuts” not to consume them every day.

A change in diet can certainly help your antioxidant levels, but adding Clinician’s Choice Optimal Antioxidants can do even more. This supplement will help fight the effects of free radicals that contribute to the signs of aging.
