Walnuts help prevent and fight bowel cancer

Walnuts are able to produce a number of substances that are extremely beneficial to human health. One of them is butyrate (butyric acid), which strengthens the intestinal epithelium and leads to the stabilization of local immunity

American experts have discovered a new property of walnuts: it turns out that the use of this plant product helps improve the quality of the intestinal microflora, and this, in turn, significantly reduces the risk of developing colorectal cancer. 

Scientists from the University of Illinois conducted a study, in which 18 men and women were invited to participate. All volunteers were divided into two groups: participants of the first for 21 days regularly ate 42 grams of walnuts, and the subjects from the second fed as before, without changing anything in their diet. 

The results of the experiment pleasantly surprised the specialists. Those people who ate several walnuts a day at a time increased the content of bacteria vital for improving the intestinal microflora.

The thing is that walnuts are able to produce a number of substances that are extremely beneficial to human health. One of them is butyrate (butyric acid), which significantly improves the digestive process : it strengthens the intestinal epithelium and leads to the stabilization of local immunity. 

Deficiency of butyrate can provoke the development of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. In addition, walnuts include dietary fiber , and it is known to be the ideal healthy food for the intestinal microbiome and activates beneficial bacteria.
