We’ve had a lot of people get in touch to say they found our previous blog – ‘Let’s go nuts for nuts!’ – a great reminder of how good for us nuts can be.
Notwithstanding those who have a nut allergy, nuts can be extremely rich and there are certain ones that offer particular nutrients and vitamins, whether eaten as a snack or part of your cooking and baking regime.
So the last time you encountered an almond, where was it? Sitting pretty atop an apple cake? All neatly sliced and sprinkled?
Or perhaps you favour the savoury route and poured ground almonds into your never-from-a-jar curry?
Almonds are brilliant and here’s why:
They are packed with nutrients and vitamins to help support a healthy lifestyle. Of its 80 plus nutrients, those key to good health include:
- B vitamins
- Vitamin E
Research has made it abundantly clear that almonds can help guard against diabetes, cardiovascular disease and also help encourage weight loss.
You may think that a little odd – given nuts are pretty high on the old calorie count – but results show that those who eat nuts twice a week are much less likely to gain weight than those who never partake.
What almonds could do for you
The manganese and copper present in almonds are two trace minerals that fight free radicals to enable a consistent and strong energy release. And they are:
- Great for heart health
- Great for weight control
- Great for Lowering cholesterol
- Great for then immune system
- Great for blood flow
I’m really tempted to sum up the virtues of the almond by using the phrase: in a nut shell.
But that would be such a cliché. We may be a lot of things here at Supplement Place (passionate, dedicated and very, very healthy) but a cliche´we are not.
The fact is almonds are simply little wonders and can be hugely beneficial when part of a healthy diet. Yes, even in cakes.
For anyone unable to eat nuts due to allergy, we have many food supplements which contain all the nutrients and vitamins you’d find in almonds, so there’s no need for you to be deprived of those benefits.
