Almond Benefits

I love just about any type of nuts.  Be it  peanuts, walnuts, pili nuts, cashews, and more.  One of my favorites is the almonds.  I usually buy the whole almonds, I snack on it when I am doing my online  tasks or when I am watching TV with  my kids.
According to the article that I read online, almonds has a lot of health benefits, below are some of them.

  • Best fat burning food due to its good fiber content.
  • Its tryptophan  content makes it very  good for brain development.
  • Its magnesium content helps in reducing risks of cardiac arrest.
  • Its phosphorous helps in developing brains and muscle tissues
  • Folic Acid and Vitamin B contents helps reduce birth defects in fetus that's why  most  OB GYNE recommends this for pregnant women.
  • Almonds also improves skin and hair texture.  

Aside from regular almonds, there are also wild almonds  which contains glycocide which turns into  cyanide

I love almonds, too! I am an almonds monster! Actually, I love all kinds of peanuts! I would go nuts without a stock of them in my pantry! LOL.

I, too, love almonds. Well, nuts of various types, for that matter. But like Lainy said, they're on the pricey side, so having a serving on any given day is already a treat.
