A handful of almonds may well be the perfect daily snack for staving off disease.
The high-protein, nutrient-rich nuts help suppress the appetite, beat flab and also keep your heart healthy. Almonds are high in beneficial monounsaturated fats and vitamin E, which protects against UV light damage and Alzheimer’s, according to six studies presented to the American Society of Nutrition Scientific Sessions in San Diego.
And for people at risk of diabetes, eating the nuts daily moderates blood glucose concentrations.
They are also packed with minerals, among them manganese, which helps the body form strong bones and regulates blood sugar, and magnesium which is essential for organ, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and regulating blood pressure.
