Walnut Partitions Tea is an old folk remedy against chest pain, clogged arteries, and other cardiovascular problems. Another useful property of this tea seems to be reducing the temperature related to heart pain.
When you pull out the inner core of a walnut, among the nut itself you will find several partitions (septum). They are easy to identify: in most cases, they divide the “flesh” into four parts.
A tea prepared from these partitions is believed to help clean coronary artery blockages and may help in case of heart disease. Now, these claims are not scientifically proven. So take them with a grain of salt.
Also, please note that any coronary disease is a serious condition and it shouldn’t be taken lightly. If you have heart problems, you should consult with your doctor as soon as possible. This tea is certainly something you could try, but only as an auxiliary means.
Walnut partitions tea is believed to be potentially useful for smokers, as their arteries suffer because of chronic intoxication with nicotine and other harmful substances present in the tobacco smoke.
If you decide to drink this home remedy regularly, you would need some fresh walnuts in shell. You would have to crack open a couple of walnuts every day to get enough partitions for your tea.
Don’t throw away the nuts, though. They have plenty of benefits on their own. We regularly consume a couple of walnuts every day. The core of the walnuts resembles human brain, and it is believed that they improve brain function.
For example, the fatty acids contained in the raw walnuts may help deal with stress and help with depression. Walnuts are found to reduce the risks of heart diseases, help regulate sleep, lower LDL cholesterol, and instill a sense of peace. Rich in antioxidants, they are also excellent cancer fighters and help improve the immune system. Like the other nuts, they have a lot of manganese too. The omega 3 contained in walnuts is ALA, which is the least desirable type (EPA and DHA are much more beneficial). Still, it is omega-3 (as opposed to the omnipresent omega-6), so it is good to get as much as you can.
How to Prepare
The recipe is simple.
- Put several walnut partitions in cold water.
- Soak them over night, and in the morning prepare the tea.
- Boil the water together with the partitions for something like 5 or 10 minutes.
- Strain and drink the tea after cooling down to room temperature.
The taste of this tea is bland, but not unpleasant. So give it a try. There’s nothing to lose and a lot to gain.
The Bottom Line
Without scientific evidence it is difficult to claim anything about the health benefits of walnut partitions tea. That being said, it doesn’t cost you anything to try, except a couple of fresh walnuts in shell and some time to crack the open and separate the partitions. We find the taste acceptable, and in addition to this tea, you will have a treat in the form of several walnuts cores every day. Enjoy!
