    Are you a nut Lover?

    Hands up ??‍♀️here, especially Walnuts and Almonds.

    Walnuts are called Akhrot in Hindi and Akshot in Sanksrit अक्षोट.

    Walnuts (along with Almonds) are considered to be the best nuts for Brmhana action (building tissue). Walnuts are rich in omega 3 fats and contain higher amounts of antioxidants than most other foods. Eating walnuts may improve brain and cardio vascular health.?❤️?❤️ ?

    Walnuts are made of 65% fat and a small amounts of protein around 15%. They are very low in carbohydrates and most of which consists of fibre.

    Be cautious when storing nuts they are prone to become mouldy easily. Best to enjoy them fresh or roast them ?

    The Ayurvedic properties are Madhura (sweet) in taste, Guru (heavy) and Snigdha (oily). The Vipaka (post digestive taste) is sweet and its action are Vata shamaka (reduces Vata). Walnuts are nutritious and have Balya (strength promoting) action.

    Ayurvedic medicines with Walnuts are Balamritam, Amritaprasha Ghrita.
