44Almonds are a popular and tasty nut and although quite high in fats, almonds are extremely healthy. Here are five reasons why you should add them to your diet.

  1. Almonds are loaded with nutrients, especially calcium which is great for your teeth, as well as magnesium, vitamin E and manganese.
  2. Almonds contain antioxidants. These are mainly found in the brown layer of skin on an almond so ideally snack on almonds that haven’t been blanched.
  3. Almonds help to regulate blood sugar levels, largely due to their high magnesium content.
  4. Almonds are beneficial for blood pressure levels, which is again due to magnesium, a mineral in which many people are deficient.
  5. Almonds can help to reduce cholesterol levels, lowering levels of bad LDL cholesterol.
