Is it safe to eat 20 Almonds each day?

Almonds are rich source of omega 3 fats, fibers and zinc. It have a lot of benefits. Few of them are listed below:

Improves digestion: If you have soaked almonds in the empty stomach, it may make it easier for your stomach to digest, which can increase the absorption of some nutrients. The fact is that soaking softens almonds, potentially making it easier for you to chew and for the body to break down. Also, soaking almonds help release lipase, an enzyme that aids your body digest fats.

Aids weight loss: Almonds are low in carbs but high in fibre - the nutrient that increase feelings of fullness, thereby reducing your overall calorie intake. Hence, taking a few pieces of soaked almonds on a regular basis every morning may help you lose weight effectively. Moreover, there’s evidence that eating nuts may boost your metabolism, which is linked to better weight loss.

Boosts brain function: Almonds are high in vitamin E that has been shown to promote alertness, preserve memory longer and prevent cognitive decline. Hence, almonds are often considered ‘brain food’. Additionally, getting healthy levels of vitamin E has been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. So, ensuring that you get your daily dose of this fat-soluble antioxidant can keep your brain sharp as well as provide numerous health benefits.

Lowers cholesterol levels: Research suggests that eating a handful of almonds each day can reduce LDL or ‘bad’ cholesterol while maintaining HDL or ‘good’ cholesterol. Almonds contain high levels of fat (unsaturated fat) - this type of fat does not raise the risk of LDL linked to heart disease. What’s more, the magnesium content in almonds can help control blood pressure.

Improves blood sugar levels: Almonds also contain high amounts of magnesium, a mineral that many people especially those with type 2 diabetes don’t get enough of it. Magnesium is important for managing blood sugar levels besides other bodily processes. Getting an adequate amount of this mineral can help improve metabolic syndrome and blood sugar profiles.

Good for skin: The antioxidants in almonds, particularly vitamin E, can help reduce the signs of ageing and protect your skin from damage caused by free radicals - giving you that radiant, blemish-free, glowing skin.
