They grow on medium to large trees; and even grow as high as 2000 meters in the Jalal-Abad province of Kyrgyzstan. Walnuts have been historically documented back to ancient Babylon around 2000 BC. The scientific community believes walnuts may have been consumed as much as 8000 years ago, after an archaeological excavation uncovered roasted walnut shells on Neolithic sites in the southwest of France.
More than ever before, researchers are convinced about the nourishing qualities of raw walnuts when consumed in their whole form, including the skin. Modern research indicates that approximately 90% of phenols in walnuts are found in the skin, including key phenolic acids, tannins, and flavonoids. They also contain an unusual form of Vitamin E, the alpha-tocopherol form. Phytonutrient research on the antioxidant and possible inflammation response benefits of walnuts has proven that its comparable to other foods that may support metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular issues. Some phytonutrients found in walnuts, like quinone juglone, are found in virtually no other common foods. Other phytonutrients like the tannin tellimagrandin or the flavonol morin are also rare and may be valuable as antioxidants and that might support a healthy inflammation response.
