HEALTH BENEFITS OF ALMONDS

Compared to all other nuts, almonds are the most packed with nutrients and beneficial components.

Usually eaten raw, almonds are also enjoyed sprinkled on salads, throughout casseroles, and other dishes.

Almond milk is also a delicious beverage, and a great alternative to less the nutritious cow’s milk.

A few benefits of almonds can be seen below.

Bone Health: being a great source of phosphorous almonds help boost the strength and durability of bones and teeth while also preventing the onset of age-related conditions like osteoporosis.  

Immune System Strength: Almonds are great sources for alkali materials, and this is known to benefit the strength of the immune system, as well as increase the ability to stave off diseases and various health conditions.

Boosts energy:  A great source of manganese, copper and Riboflavin almonds help with the production of energy and metabolic rate.

When on the go, grab a handful of almonds to get you through the day without filling you up with calories or fat.

    1. I’m not sure Dee! We use a music library for uncopywrited music and my video editors pick it out. I love the song too – it makes me want to dance and blend! 🙂
