How to Lower Your Cholesterol with Nutritious Almonds!

Many of my friends do not eat nuts because of weight consciousness. They do not want any extra pound and do not savour many of their favourite high-calorie dishes. Makes sense. My association with almonds began only a few years ago, during my graduation days. I eat almonds, use them as an eye pack for dark circles (thanks to the long hours of reading) and also used almond oil for skin and hair. Once my cousin told me that eating almonds is just not enough. You have to chew them into a milk like consistency to ensue maximum absorption. I am normally fond of nuts like my father whose favourite is cashew. Many people asked me to avoid eating nuts as they are high-fat foods. So did my friends who told me “I am nuts”. They say almonds are nutrition bombs but only for children. I am sure I have to write an article on the health benefits of almonds to convince them.

Studies bear witness to the fact that eating a few almonds daily can lower the LDL cholesterol in your body. This applies to people who have low saturated fat diet. Almonds are a great source of vitamin E, lots of protein, magnesium and manganese, fiber, copper, riboflavin, and phosphorus. It is abundant in heart-healthy unsaturated fats.

The presence of magnesium in the body will resist any free radical injury to the heart while calcium will provide strength to the bones. Potassium in proportion would aid to maintain blood pressure and cardiovascular functions. Alpha-tocopherol in almonds can deal the Vitamin E cravings of your body. Alpha-tocopherol is the kind of vitamin E the human body absorbs best for its daily functions.

Almond skins are found to contain 20 potent antioxidant flavanoids which are highly essential for our good health. After a meal, there is an increase in the blood sugar level. Experts say that almonds can decrease this blood sugar level and also help to destroy the free radicals to some extent. And the fun part is, a regular intake of almonds even can protect you from the risk of heart disease and diabetes.

Almonds also help you lose weight while helps to prevent weight gain. Most of the nuts have a positive impact on cardiovascular health but they are much avoided in fear of weight gain. A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition found a positive change in the health of people who had a diet of 2 ounces of almonds daily.

Raw almonds have a healthier fatty acid composition than roasted almonds. They make a nutritious and
stomach-filling snack. Enjoy a spread of almond butter on your toast for a wholesome breakfast.

Almonds are not just for children, they are great for adults too.

    Thanks for making me to obtain new strategies about pc’s. I also contain the belief that one of the best ways to maintain your laptop in prime condition is with a hard plastic material case, or even shell, that suits over the top of one’s computer.

    Most of these protective gear are generally model targeted
    since they are made to fit perfectly over
    the natural housing. You can buy all of them directly
    from owner, or via third party sources if they are readily available for your notebook computer,
    however not every laptop may have a shell on the market.
    Once again, thanks for your ideas.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
