For what reasons is their consumption recommended?
Reduce saturated fat and increase essential nutrients
According to the American Dietetic Association, eating a handful of almonds a day helps reduce the consumption of saturated fats and increase the consumption of essential nutrients such as fiber, protein and vitamin E.

Protection against degenerative diseases
Vitamin E is an important antioxidant, which protects the body from various degenerative diseases and helps reduce the rate of cell aging. Research has shown that a handful of almonds provide 35% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin E. Magnesium helps maintain good bone health while fiber contributes to good heart and gastrointestinal health. Protein is a building block of muscle, hair and nails, while monounsaturated fats help lower total cholesterol if they replace saturated fats.

Decrease in LDL and increase in HDL
Almonds also lower the levels of so-called "bad" cholesterol (LDL), which is thought to be responsible for cardiovascular disease, while increasing "good" cholesterol (HDL).

Prevention of serious diseases
Consumption of almonds has a beneficial effect on the body and in particular on the prevention of serious diseases such as diabetes, according to American experts.

Improving insulin levels
Researchers at the University of New Jersey School of Medicine and Dentistry, who studied the effects on the body of 65 adults with prediabetes, concluded that a diet rich in almonds helps improve both insulin and insulin levels. lipid profile of the individual.

They strengthen the body's defense against viruses
According to a new British-Italian scientific study, eating almonds helps the human body fight viral infections, such as the common cold and flu. The study found that the chemicals that are naturally found in the skin of these nuts, strengthen the immune system's defense against viruses. They thus increase the natural ability of the human body to inhibit the multiplication and spread of pathogenic microorganisms. However, when the skin is removed from the almonds, then their protective action is drastically reduced.

Effect on body weight and satiety
In a relatively recent study, scientists found that people who ate 60 grams of almonds a day, without changing their other eating habits, maintained their weight and also reduced other foods by increasing their intake of magnesium and vitamin E. The almonds, with the combination of protein and fiber they contain, kept the subjects in saturation longer than before, helping to better regulate weight and prevent cardiovascular disease.

The researchers also point out that the almonds given to the patients during the study replaced other foods or desserts or snacks in their diet, reducing the total amount of calories they received.
