Health Benefits of Almonds
When you cook and bake with almonds or even just eat them alone, you’re getting a lot of important nutrients. High protein and fiber, as well as certain vitamins and minerals, will keep you feeling balanced and alert. And, you may experience these health benefits, as well:
Heart Health: Research such as the Iowa Health Study, has proven almonds to boost cardiovascular health by lowering levels of LDL (low-density lipoprotein). The cholesterol-lowering effects have been linked to the high levels of monounsaturated fats, which make up 64% of the total fat content.
Energy Production: Almonds contain a daily recommended intake of 27% manganese, 26% copper and 49% biotin. Manganese and copper work together to disarm free radicals in the mitochondria and open up energy pathways, while biotin promotes the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates.
Rich in Protein: The high protein content, with 6g in every one-ounce serving of almonds, is crucial in forming and repairing body tissue. Vegans and vegetarians, who struggle to get recommended amounts of protein, can benefit greatly by adding a daily serving of the nuts into their diet. Protein also works as a hunger suppressant, preventing high-calorie intake during meals.
- Weight Loss: The low carbohydrate profile of almonds makes them an ideal weight loss snack. Only 2.5g of carbohydrates in a 1-ounce serving is digestible, which works to regulate blood sugar levels. In addition, 12.5% of blanched almonds bulk consists of fiber that, similar to protein, promotes a feeling of fullness and prevents overeating.
