  2. Induces sleep: Walnuts contain a compound called melatonin, responsible for conveying messages regarding the cycle of light and dark to the body. Since melatonin is already synthesised by the body, consumption of walnuts increases the blood levels of melatonin, thereby inducing sleep.
  3. Great for your hair: Walnut is a good ‘hair food’ too. This is because walnuts contain biotin (vitamin B7) that helps strengthen hair, reduce hair fall and improve hair growth to certain extent.
  4. Prevents heart disease: Among all the dietary plants and nuts, walnuts contain the highest amount of antioxidants.
  5. Prevents diabetes: All types of nuts are associated with a lowered risk of diabetes and walnuts are no exception.
  6. Makes your skin glow: Walnuts are rich in B-vitamins and antioxidants that prevents your skin from free radical damage and prevents wrinkles and signs of ageing.
  7. Prevents pancreatic cancer
