Eating Walnuts for Beautiful Skin and Hair

walnutWalnuts are truly a superfood (and they are DELICIOUS, I enjoy them as a topping on several meals or sides as well as simply alone with their naturally rich buttery flavor) since they naturally contain huge amounts of fatty acid nutrients that benefit the human body in profound ways.

Not only are walnuts immensely powerful for the overall health of the body, but walnuts are also one of the best things you can eat to contribute to beautiful, luminous skin and strong, lustrous hair.

Amino Acids

They contain several essential amino acids which are found naturally in healthy skin, so eating walnuts is truly like eating your way to beautiful, healthy and damage-resistant skin and hair.  They are the building blocks of healthy tissue.

Vitamin E – The Healthy Hair and Skin Vitamin (and Others)

Walnuts contain vitamin e (found in our best selling skin cream), which is a powerful antioxidant. Just the mere fact that vitamin e is an antioxidant makes it ultra skin & hair friendly.  However, vitamin e also has addition skin and hair health benefits. Internally taking vitamin e can help make the skin softer and accelerate healing when the skin is injured.

It is also used topically for this purpose.  Many people use vitamin e oil topically after they are sun burned or have otherwise injured or abused their skin to help accelerate the healing process.

Vitamin e is even used as a natural antimicrobial and antibacterial agent or as a natural preservative in natural body & hair care products as opposed to harmful chemicals such as parabens and other hormone-altering chemicals.

Other Vitamins & Minerals

They also contain several vitamins that are super skin-friendly because they create the foundation for healthy, vibrant and abundant skin and hair growth as well as a strength you cannot get from anything applied topically since it’s all built from within.

They are high in dietary fat, so some nutritionists warn against eating too many in one day to limit your calorie intake and maintain your weight. However, the fat contained in walnuts is called monounsaturated fat, which is good for cholesterol levels, and actually may benefit your weight loss goals.

Walnuts are also a good source of the minerals copper and manganese, both of which are vital to the health of your skin and hair, both of which are connective tissues that are highly sensitive to nutritional deficiencies.

Manganese is important in the genesis of healthy skin cell turnover and copper is a great firming agent to the skin, so having walnuts in your diet can help to keep the skin firm and lifted further into life when the skin begins to sag and gravity starts to take its (depressing) effect.

Walnuts are EXCELLENT for your skin .They are not only great for your skin, but they also contribute to a healthy heart, healthy blood pressure levels and are excellent anti-cancer foods.  They are very filling because of their fat content, so you don’t have to eat a whole lot of them to feel satiated.  They should be a part of your diet. Oh yeah, they’re also delicious and are great when added to other foods for crunch, texture and flavor.
