Almonds are the seeds of the almond tree, the Prunus dulcis. Native to the Middle East, almonds are now produced on the biggest scale by the United States. The almonds that you are eating are removed from the shell. Almonds are also used to make milk, oil, butter and flour. These small seeds (they are not in fact considered as true nuts) are big in nutrients; almonds are a rich source of healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. In particular, almonds are a good source of Vitamin E, protein and magnesium.
As such, there are many almond benefits for the body. The Vitamin E in almonds prevents cellular damage and prevents your arteries from clogging. It also lowers cholesterol levels. The magnesium contained in almonds helps to lower blood sugar, while protein and fiber help reduce hunger and promote weight loss. For more information on almond nutrition, see the infographic below.
