The most essential vitamins in honey are mainly C and B vitamins, folic acid, and niacin. It also has a high enzyme content, which contributes to its significant antibiotic effect.
Walnuts are an excellent source of unsaturated fatty acids, and a few walnuts can help normalize cholesterol levels after a high-fat meal. Walnuts also contribute to maintaining the elasticity of blood vessels. They also contain a significant amount of omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants.
