Can i use walnuts in summer season and at what time & quantity i have to use it and for my kids too.
Rupal Shobta ( India )

Yes, you can have them in summers.
But, always soak them in water for a night and eat them in the morning.
If you do not soak them , the herb is hot in summer , thus, it might not suit you during this season.
When soaked over night, walnuts are no more hot in nature, their potency changed to cold.
All the best.
