One of the most widely consumed nuts is almonds. Did you know that almonds have many benefits for the human body?
From skin and hair, to bone and immune system, almonds contain lots of nutrition to keep you nourished and give a boost of energy. Almonds contain calcium, magnesium, copper, vitamin K, protein, and zinc, which contribute to bone health.
They can also reduce blood pressure and lower cholesterol levels which offers protection against heart disease.
Additionally, almonds lower blood sugar levels which help curb blood sugar spikes after meals, which helps people with diabetes.
Be careful not to eat too many almonds because it can mean you’re adding more calories and fat into your system. A healthy serving of almonds is ¼ cup or 23 almonds.
You can always eat a serving of almonds as a snack, add them to your cereal or yogurt, or even blend them into your morning smoothie!
