Hello! Very interesting and informative article, but there is one "but". After all, nuts – this is a very heavy food for the stomach, do not tell me in which part of the day it is better to eat nuts and whether they should be washed down with anything?
I like walnuts very much. Delicious and healthy, it's just an invaluable source of vitamins! And during pregnancy I drank every day a spoon of walnut oil instead of taking synthetic vitamins.
Not for nothing is a walnut shaped like the brain. Walnuts simply need to be included in the ration of school children, students and in general people who are engaged in mental work, the benefit now they are sold in a cleaned form. Therefore, as a mother, I took this for a long time. I give a little- 2-3 a nut a day, alternating with almonds , hazelnuts.
The fact that the core of the walnut in shape resembles the human brain, for the pathologist, probably, it is not so unconditionally.
And the fact that the appearance of the eaten food affects the health of a similar organ of "eating" it. Enphysema of the lungs – the lungs are mild, infarct-beef, dog, another's heart, loss of potency-garments, sausages, cucumbers, cuttings from shovels.
Loss of potency is pricked Her any mammal and here the sausages if you have written it hurts heart heart eat-so without jokes if something like this is treated like this is FAKT.
Proceeding from this, the Aborigines ate Cook. So or?
I live in an area where walnut trees grow near the house, but nobody calls them walnuts. Every year I make reserves for the winter, but I still give preference to the green nuts – from them it turns out a kind of jam, of course, it's an amateur, but you can surprise the guests. And green nuts contain a lot of iodine, so the hands after cleaning them for a long time are dark brown, by the way, it's nice to rub the green peel of nuts into your hair – here's a mask and paint at the same time!
for all the "clever information" of iodine in the walnut so much that, given the plantings and wild walnuts in the south of Russia (and the walnut steadily fructifies in the middle lane), we do not care about the traditional ways of obtaining iodine-containing drugs, supplements, etc. According to the Internet, iodine content in nuts reaches 0,3%. Well-versed judge this: eat a nut – died in terrible agony!
By the way most of all iodine for food is contained in the cod liver (possibly in some kind of liver and more, but I just for an example), namely – about 350 μG per 100 G product. In translation for weight percent – about 0,00035%. Here everything is all right – ate 100 d (even as a snack) – and nourishing, and tasty, and shchitovidku supported. All the fantasies about the huge content of iodine in walnuts come from the color of playful hands that peeled off the raw shell of the walnut and from some sharp odor while our homegrown chemists evoke analogies with one of the most aggressive chemical elements. Generally:
– but ALL I SHALL SAY ALL!
In walnuts there is no iodine.
They contain α- and β-hydrogens, these substances are often confused with iodine, but it is not iodine and does not have its properties.
