"Compared to most other nuts, which contain monounsaturated 'fats,] walnuts are unique because they are rich in n-6 'common vegetable oils] and n-3 'fats, as in fish oils.] Walnuts contain multiple health-beneficial components, such as 'favorable protein ratios,] and high levels of arginine 'protein,] folate, fiber, tannins, and polyphenols.
