Almonds can be eaten as a snack by themselves or added to sweet or savory dishes. You can also buy them sliced, flaked, slivered, as flour, oil, butter, almond milk, or sliced. Almonds are often called nuts, but they are actually seeds.
People may have been one of the first people to grow almond trees. Archaeologists have found evidence that almond trees were tamed in Jordan about 5,000 years ago.
Almonds have vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber, they may be good for your health in a number of ways. One-eighth of the protein a person needs every day can be found in just a handful of almonds, which is about 1 ounce.
◉ Almonds Can Help Gut Health:- Researchers have found that both raw and roasted almonds act as prebiotics, which are food for the good bacteria in the gut that help with immunity, inflammation, and mental health. In a study from 2016 that was published in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, college students were given either almonds or graham crackers as a snack.
After eight weeks, researchers noticed that the people who ate almonds had important changes in their gut microbiomes, such as a decrease in a pathogenic bacterium and an increase in the variety of bacteria linked to good things like weight management, insulin function, cholesterol regulation, and reducing inflammation.
◉ They Keep Your Heart Healthy:- In many ways, almonds protect your heart. A 2018 study published in Nutrients found that the nuts keep or raise "good" HDL cholesterol, which is good for the heart, while lowering "bad" LDL cholesterol.
Almonds and other nuts also help lower blood pressure and improve the way blood vessels work. This means that they help blood vessels relax and make arteries less stiff. In a 2015 study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, people with high cholesterol were split into two groups and given either 1.5 ounces of almonds or the same number of calories from a nut-free muffin as part of a cholesterol-lowering diet. After two weeks, the people who ate nuts had lower LDL while their HDL stayed the same. The people who ate almonds also had less belly fat and less fat on their legs.
◉ Almonds Can Aid Weight Regulation:- A 2015 study in Nutrition Journal found that eating tree nuts, like almonds, can lower your body mass index (BMI), which is a measure of your weight compared to your height, and your waist size. The study found that the combination of healthy fat, plant protein, and fiber in almonds makes people feel fuller and keeps hunger at bay for longer.
Also, a study published in 2012 in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that almonds have about 20% fewer calories than the labels say they do. This is because some of the calories don't get into the bloodstream from the digestive tract.
◉ They're Good for Skin:- We know that healthy fats are good for the skin, but almonds may help turn back the clock on aging skin. In a randomized controlled study published in Phytotherapy Research in 2019, healthy women who had gone through menopause were split into two groups. One group ate almonds for 20% of their daily calories for 16 weeks, while the other group ate the same amount of calories from other foods.
At the start of the study and again eight and 16 weeks later, the width and severity of wrinkles were measured using a facial photograph and an image analysis system. Researchers found that people who ate almonds had less severe and wider wrinkles than people who didn't eat almonds. Not a bad perk for a tasty food that is also good for you in so many other ways.
