Almonds – An Excellent Source for Nutrition

The flavor and crunch of almonds are undeniable plusses, but the nutritional value is equally impressive. The USDA, or the U.S. Department of Agriculture, promotes almonds as a quality source of protein, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, magnesium, Vitamin E, fiber, and much more!

Build Muscle with Protein-Rich Almonds

A single 1 oz. serving of almonds contains 6+ grams of protein, the vital nutrient needed for building muscle. Beyond developing muscle mass, protein also helps with weight management. 

Manage Weight, Blood Sugar, and Gut Health with Fiber-Rich Almonds

That same serving, or handful, of almonds provides four grams of fiber. Fiber is one nutrient that makes you feel better, look better, and live longer. When men consume 38 grams of fiber and women consume 25 grams daily, they have improved cardio health, less risk of colon cancer, managed weight, and better blood sugars.

Elevate HDL “Good” and Lower LDL “Bad” Cholesterol Numbers with Almonds Rich in Monounsaturated Fat

Of the 14 grams of fat in a handful of almonds, 80% is monounsaturated, 15% polyunsaturated, and 5% saturated. Monounsaturated fats are “healthy” fats with significant heart benefits. HDL cholesterol is the good kind, and eating almonds raises these numbers. Even more, monounsaturated fat lowers the dreaded LDL cholesterol, leading to blocked arteries, strokes, and heart attacks. Monounsaturated fats also promote maximum cell function and energy. 

Protect Against Cellular Damage with Antioxidant-Rich Almonds

Vitamin E and other antioxidants in almonds fight against free radicals in the body. Doing so protects cells from the damage free radicals cause. Vitamin E also improves immunity and lessens the chances of developing arterial blood clots.

Antioxidants also reduce chronic inflammation linked to cardiovascular disease, cancer, Type II diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Lower Blood Pressure with Magnesium-Rich Almonds

High blood pressure is a serious health condition that is often treated through medication and changes to diet and exercise. The 76.5 mg of magnesium per almond serving is one key dietary element that can lower blood pressure. 

Foster a Healthy Gut with Prebiotics in Almonds

The prebiotics needed for a healthy gut microbiome promotes a healthy weight, immunity, and more. Almonds are a natural prebiotic source and a low-FODMAP source, critical for those with sensitive digestive tracts.

The health benefits of eating almonds run the gamut of every system in the human body.
