The versatile nut is a healthy addition to both savory and sweet dishes. Almonds are an excellent source of nutrients and provide health benefits. They have been associated with lowering LDL-Cholesterol (the “bad” cholesterol).  Moderate consumption of almonds is linked to a lower risk of heart disease.  In addition the vitamin E and it’s antioxidant properties found in the nut have been noted to reduce LDL cholesterol.  Magnesium and potassium provide extra protection to cardiovascular health, as well as lowers the glycemic index (GI) which is related to blood sugar after meal consumption. Nut for nut and pound for pound the almond helps in weight loss regimes for a nutritious snack. Many people are enjoying almond milk and butter as a nice spread.  Try it on a piece of celery  for additional health benefits.
