The almond is now at the top of the lists of superfoods. It is one of the healthiest nuts you can get. Technically, almonds are not a nut, but rather a seed. This nutritious tree nut, from the same family as peaches and apricots, is known for its many health benefits. A handful of almonds every day, about 24 pieces, can help lower ‘bad’ cholesterol and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Besides, almonds are very rich in vitamin E, and this is great for your immune system. A small handful of almonds per day already provides 40 per cent of the recommended daily amount of vitamin per day. Ideal for boosting your resistance.
