AMAZING ALMONDS

Did you know?

1. Almonds are actually stone fruits related to cherries, plums and peaches

2. Whole Almonds (with Skins) Provide the Most Heart Healthy Benefits

3. They are High in Magnesium and Vitamin E and daily ingestion of adequate almonds helps prevent premature aging of your skin

4. In addition to their cholesterol-lowering effects, the almonds' ability to reduce heart disease risk may also be partly due to the antioxidant action of the vitamin E

 


5. In addition to healthy fats and vitamin E, a quarter-cup of almonds contains almost 99 mg of magnesium (that's 24.7% of the daily value for this important mineral), plus 257 mg of potassium

6. Eat them after your meal - Almonds appear to not only decrease after-meal rises in blood sugar, but also provide antioxidants to mop up the smaller amounts of free radicals

7. Twenty potent antioxidant flavonoids were identified in almond skins some of which are well known as major contributors to the health benefits derived from other foods, such as the catechins found in green tea, and naringenin, which is found in grapefruit

8. In a recent study people who ate nuts at least twice a week were much less likely to gain weight than those who almost never ate nuts
