"Loma Linda University research just published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition compares the effects of walnuts and fatty fish in the fight against heart disease, demonstrating that in healthy individuals, walnuts lower cholesterol more than fish, while fatty fish lower triglycerides. Both can reduce the overall risk of coronary heart disease." Life Extension
"A diet high in gamma tocopherol rich walnuts improves endothelium dependent vasodilatation in those with high cholesterol." Nunez et al
"Walnuts contain a trio of cancer
fighters – phytosterols, omega-3s, and flavonoids.
Studies show that these nutrient compounds
can inhibit tumors from forming in the breast and shrink them if they are
already there. Omega-3s.
Omega-3s have a unique ability. They are able to get absorbed into cell
membranes where they help cancer cells self-destruct. They reduce a inflammatory
enzyme called COX 2, which promotes breast cancer.
"Nuts generally have become popular as all round source of nutrition and are favored by those who exercise regularly as a good source of protein and energy. Walnut is an excellent source of omega 3 essential fatty acids, a special type of protective fat the body cannot manufacture. It has many health benefits ranging from cardiovascular protection, to the promotion of better cognitive function and the anti-inflammatory benefit that is useful for Asthma patients, rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory skin diseases such as Eczema and psoriasis; walnuts also contain an anti-oxidant compound called ellagic acid that supports the immune system and appears to have several anti-cancer properties," Life Extension
A new study from Yale finds that daily consumption of walnuts, rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, may improve the health of blood vessels, thereby decreasing the risk of heart disease. Supplementing the diet of middle-aged diabetics with 56 grams of walnuts led to significant improvements in the function of the blood vessel lining (endothelium), and there was also a trend toward improved cholesterol levels, according to findings published in Diabetes Care.“ Swanson Vitamins
"The National Library of Medicine database contains no fewer than thirty-five peer-reviewed published papers supporting a claim that ingesting walnuts improves vascular health and may reduce heart attack risk—yet the FDA, the federal agency responsible for protecting the health of the American public, would apparently rather support pharmaceutical manufacturers’ rights. Imagine what would happen to drug profits if everyone ate walnuts for heart health instead of taking expensive medications!"
"Walnuts contain ellagic acid also found in strawberries, cranberries, raspberries and grapes. Ellagic acid a phenolic acid with potent antioxidant activity that also helps maintain levels and promotes production of antioxidant enzymes." Doctor Al Sears MD
"Regardless of age, gender, or ethnicity, the results showed higher walnut consumption significantly increased adults’ performance on a series of six cognitive tests. Previously, similar results were achieved in mouse model studies, where eating walnuts promoted brain health and slowed or prevented the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. “It is exciting to see the strength of the evidence from this analysis across the U.S. population supporting the previous results of animal studies that have shown the neuroprotective benefit from eating walnuts,” said Dr. Lenore Arab, lead study author from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, in a press release. Arab added the amount of walnuts an adult should eat is realistic, too: It’s less than a handful (13 grams) per day." Eating Walnuts Will Help You Ace a Memory Test
“Researchers are convinced–more than ever before–about the nutritional benefits of walnuts when consumed in whole form, including the skin. We now know that approximately 90% of the phenols in walnuts are found in the skin, including key phenolic acids, tannins, and flavonoids. … The form of vitamin E found in walnuts is somewhat unusual, and particularly beneficial. Instead of having most of its vitamin E present in the alpha-tocopherol form, walnuts provide an unusually high level of vitamin E in the form of gamma-tocopherol. Particularly in studies on the cardiovascular health of men, this gamma-tocopherol form of vitamin E has been found to provide significant protection from heart problems.” Just One Daily Dose of Walnuts Does All Of This
"Some food experts suggest removing the paper-thin, outermost layer of a shelled walnut, citing the fact that they have a bitter taste. We’re talking about the very fine, whitish outer part that is either flaky or sometimes, waxy. But you should definitely resist any advice to remove this skin from shelled walnuts. It’s believed that up to 90% of walnuts’ abundant phenols are found in this skin, making it the healthiest part to eat. Look for walnuts that are raw and unpasteurized. Note that walnuts are highly perishable due to their high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are easily damaged. If you buy shelled walnuts in bulk, avoid those that appear shriveled or rubbery, smell rancid, or that you cannot verify are fresh. Shelled walnuts should be stored in an airtight container and placed in the refrigerator, where they will keep for six months, or in the freezer, where they will last for a year.

"The healthy fats in most nuts are primarily monounsaturated fatty acids. But walnuts are rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids1—including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids—in addition to oleic acid, the powerful monounsaturate found in olive oil. In fact, the walnut is the only nut and one of the few foods that contains a significant amount of the lesser known omega-3 fat, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)—containing the highest ALA content of all edible plants2 with a hefty 2.7 grams per quarter-cup serving!3 And walnuts provide several rare and potent phytonutrients that are found in few commonly eaten foods. These unique compounds include the quinone juglone, the tannin tellimagrandin, and the flavonol morin4—all strong cancer inhibitors. Like other nuts, walnuts contain vitamin E—but instead of having most of their vitamin E present in the alpha-tocopherol form, walnuts provide an unusually high level of the particularly beneficial gamma-tocopherol form.4 Toss in walnuts’ natural array of nutrients including melatonin, copper, manganese, molybdenum, biotin, folate, selenium, and magnesium—along with the rich supply of protein and fiber also found in other nuts—and you have a true super food." Walnuts: Abundant Disease Prevention Benefits
"The functional importance of the PPO-activity in walnut hull was first described in 1991 (Piffaut and Metche, 1991). Walnut PPO was attributed to possess a putative pathogenic resistance as early as 1911 (Cook et al., 1911). Walnut leaves have a high content of various polyphenols, some of which might be important in pathogenic resistance (Colaric et al., 2005; Solar et al., 2006). PPO from walnut leaves has been poorly studied in the past (Escobar et al., 2008; Piffaut and Metche, 1991). Escobar et al. (2008) demonstrated that PPO of walnut is encoded by a single gene, jrPPO1, which is constitutively expressed in all green, herbaceous tissues of walnut."

"The black walnut tree also has been historically used to get rid of a fever and treat kidney ailments, gastrointestinal concerns, ulcers, toothache, snake bites and syphilis. Recent studies have shown that the husks of the black walnut contain chemicals that inhibit bacterial and fungal growth and may be valuable in controlling dermal, mucosal and oral infections in humans. (17) Black walnut continues to be a versatile and popular functional food as it was thousands of years ago. These walnuts are a delicious and favored addition in many culinary creations. Crack open the nuts, save the meat for cooking and eating, and crush the hulls into a powder to use them. You can also try black walnuts in soups, sprinkled on top of salads and baked into casseroles to experience a whole new flair in cooking." Black Walnut Fights Parasites, Heart Disease, Fungi & More
Bill Faloon of Life Extension notes (with every statement carefully supported by scientific journals and publications):
By supplying gamma tocopherol walnuts may fill some important space in your vitamin E requirements. Walnuts and Almonds are usually considered the two top nuts. Find a way to work Walnuts into your diet. An ounce or two of walnuts a few times a week will go far to improve your health. I try to get some raw walnuts every day.
Whole Food a KEY to Health
"The researchers stepped forward to laud the synergism of whole food components. They deliberately chose the whole food, walnut, to walnut oil. They said that the cancer-sparing properties of a whole food often disappear when they test a single component of the food. Now consider Big Pharma. These companies do the opposite. They remove what they think is the active molecule from a plant. Then they turn it into a synthetic chemical and patent it. They forget that nature packages it just right. For that process, they get rewarded with megabucks, and you suffer the toxic consequences. Clearly, molecules put together in nature work better than when we take them apart and repackage them.” Doctor Robert Rowen MD
"The fruit of the oldest tree food known to man, dating back to 7,000 BC, walnuts (Juglans regia L.) truly stand out from other nuts for their dramatically different nutritional composition. The healthy fats in most nuts are primarily monounsaturated fatty acids. But walnuts are rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids1—including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids—in addition to oleic acid, the powerful monounsaturate found in olive oil. In fact, the walnut is the only nut and one of the few foods that contains a significant amount of the lesser known omega-3 fat, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)—containing the highest ALA content of all edible plants2 with a hefty 2.7 grams per quarter-cup serving!3 ... like other nuts, walnuts contain vitamin E—but instead of having most of their vitamin E present in the alpha-tocopherol form, walnuts provide an unusually high level of the particularly beneficial gamma-tocopherol form.4 Toss in walnuts’ natural array of nutrients including melatonin, copper, manganese, molybdenum, biotin, folate, selenium, and magnesium—along with the rich supply of protein and fiber also found in other nuts—and you have a true super food.

IMO be sure to get your Walnuts every day; at least a few.
All parts of the walnut tree appear to be very healthy if somewhat difficult to harvest and eat. I have long eaten small amounts of early summer harvested walnut hulls. Dry and eat in small amounts as you find your tolerance. Walnut leaves contain good amounts of polyphenols. I have eaten small amounts of these. Be careful a little goes a long way BUT the polyphenols in walnuts are so powerful you do not need much.
