Effect of Walnut oil

For diabetes, anti-cancer and anti-allergy!

Myricetin, a phytochemical, is a type of polyphenol and has a strong antioxidant effect. Since it works to keep cells young, it is also effective in preventing anti-cancer, anti-allergies, and diabetes.

For promoting liver function!

The polyphenol pedangragin and terimakuradin contained only in walnuts promote liver function, so detoxification is also improved! You can also expect a whitening effect.

Detox with potassium and magnesium!

Potassium has the effect of draining excess water from the body and promotes the discharge of toxins and waste products to improve swelling. Magnesium has the function of softening stool and is effective in smoothing stool excretion.
Magnesium is said to have more than 300 functions in the body, and if you take enough magnesium, you will get rid of problems such as tiredness!

How to use Walnut oil

Although it is an oil that contains a lot of linoleic acid, it can be heated a little because it is rich in vitamin E.
It's just an oil with a rich flavor, so it's recommended to eat it raw!

・For salads and soups

In Georgia, one of the countries where I stayed as nomad, many dishes use walnuts. For example, it is common to sprinkle crushed walnuts and walnut oil on Georgian salads.
Also, walnut oil is often used to finish thick soups such as pottages, but the richness of walnuts gives the vegetables and soup a rich flavor, which makes it very delicious!

・For ice cream and desserts

Oil for dessert! ?? You might think. But nuts are a popular ingredient in sweets.
Walnut oil, in particular, is a perfect match for vanilla ice cream and chocolate ice cream because it adds the aroma of nuts and has a slight sweetness!

Note of Walnut oil

It is a walnut oil that is delicious and can be expected to have beauty and health effects, but it should be noted that linoleic acid is the main oil.
In most modern diets, linoleic acid intake tends to be too high. The reason is that we eat hidden linoleic acid (salad oil, etc.) every day for eating out and processed foods!
So, if you usually eat out or buy instant foods and you are at risk of lifestyle-related diseases, try using them properly depending on the dish like sesame oil, or use them as an accent ^ ^

Also, when using walnut oil, the quality of the oil is important!
You cannot expect the desired nutritional value and effect unless the oil is made by the correct method.
So when buying walnut oil, be sure to choose oil in a cold pressed light-shielding bottle (preferably organic) ^ ^
