    fruits that grow from the walnut tree. They are a good source of healthful fats, protein,

    and fiber. They may enhance heart and bone health and help in weight management, among

    other benefits. Walnut trees are native to eastern North America but are now commonly grown

    in China, Iran, and within the United States in California and Arizona.

    split into two flat segments to be sold commercially. Walnuts are available both raw or

    roasted, and salted or unsalted. They are high in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats

    lower bone mineral density and an increased risk of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a

    condition where bones become thinner and less dense, making them easier to fracture and

    break.
        More research is needed on the effects of marginal copper deficiency and on the

    potential benefits of copper supplements to prevent and manage osteoporosis. Copper also

    plays an important role in the maintenance of collagen and elastin, major structural

    components of the body. Without sufficient copper, the body cannot replace damaged

    connective tissue or the collagen that makes up the building blocks for bone. This can lead

    to a range of issues including joint dysfunction.

    plant seeds are edible, and manufacturers use them for foods and producing sunflower oil.

    As such, sunflower oil ranks as the
            fourthTrusted Source
        most produced oil in the world. As well as providing human food sources, farmers use

    sunflower seeds for livestock food. The germination of the seeds also has essential

    secondary roles in ecology and the lifecycle of organisms. Sunflower seeds are a rich

    source of carotenoids and tocopherols that act as antioxidants, which help prevent damage

    from free radicals.

    polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and antioxidants. The fatty acids in pumpkin seeds   
            contain a rangeTrusted Source
        of beneficial nutrients, such as sterols, squalene, and tocopherols. Researchers have

    described the fatty acid profile of seeds, grains, and legumes as favorable.
