8 Reasons You Should Be Eating Almonds

Raw Almonds at Sohnrey Family Foods

Almonds are a quick and delicious snack, but did you know that your favorite nut is a superfood loaded with nutrients to help get you through your day? After you read this awesome article come back here and check out everything we have to offer!


1. Rich In Antioxidants 

The highest concentration of antioxidants is found in the thin brown layer of skin on the almond. Antioxidants are crucial for fighting oxidation damage in our bodies, which can lead to aging and diseases such as cancer. 


2. Lowering Cholesterol Levels

Studies have shown that eating a handful or two of almonds daily, can help to maintain healthy levels of good cholesterol, while lowering bad cholesterol levels.


3. Weight Loss

As a hunger fighting food, these nuts can help boost metabolism while keeping you away from the cookie jar. 


4. Blood Sugar Control 

Almonds are rich in protein, fiber, healthy fats and magnesium which makes them a perfect snack for diabetics. Many diabetics have magnesium deficiencies and adding almonds to their daily diet corrects the deficiency and has shown improvements in their insulin functions. 


5. Great Source Of Vitamin E 

Vitamin E is crucial for overall health. Almonds are one of the best sources, with 37% of your daily need in just one ounce (approx. 28 nuts). 


6. Nutrient Rich

Almonds are not only a delicious snack, but also loaded with many nutrients that our bodies crave. These tasty nuts contain: protein, monounsaturated fat, fiber, vitamin E, magnesium, manganese, and many more healthy minerals. 


7. Energy Boosting 

Manganese and copper are both naturally found in almonds. These two minerals help to disarm the free radicals produced within our cells, which keeps our energy flowing.


8.  Gallstone Prevention 

By eating one serving of almonds a week (approx. 28 nuts) your risk of developing gallstones decreases by 25%.


Almonds are packed with nutrients and have many health benefits. So next time your stomach growls, grab a handful of almonds, your body will thank you.
