FIVE HEALTH BENEFITS OF ALMOND NUTS

I  was used to  the  normal   nuts,  aka ‘njugu‘ , a.k.a  the  tastiest  nuts ever  a.k.a I should  stop saying a.k.a  already …until  I met  almond  nuts and  our  love  instantly  got  brewed in an African pot.I went head over heels, they  are  not  only  good looking

see  what  I  mean?

 

But they  make  your  health   look  good  too…. Bam! talk about  all  sorts of awesomeness  .I always  have  almonds  with me  wherever I go  since I get hungry all  the  time and I tend  to  want  to  snack  all the  time. ( Hey you  got  to blame it on   (HIIT)  workouts, they are literally  like  all day  appetizers ,I am not even kidding ) . Anyway, here  are  some   health  benefits  of  Almond  nuts. Maybe it will  convince you to go grab  a  handful   in exchange  for  the  usual  fried   foods during  snack time  !

  1. They   have  antioxidants  that  prevent  Heart  diseases  and  Cancer
  2. They  lower  the  blood  cholesterol   hence   reducing  your  risk  of  blood  pressure
  3. They are  the  best  source  of  Vitamin E  , this  in return  reduces  aging  by bettering your  skin  (where  my ladies  at?)
  4. It   prevents  diseases  like  diabetes  by  reducing  the  blood  sugar  level
  5. Last  but  not  least , if you are looking to  drop that weight, Almond  nuts  curbs  hunger  hence lowering calorie intake which  aids  in loosing that extra weight
