 Eating 14 Grams Of Almonds Daily can Boost Your Health

Eating a moderate amount of almonds every day may enrich the diets of adults and young children, according to a new study.

"Almonds are a good source of plant protein -- essential fatty acids, vitamin E and magnesium," said one of the researchers Alyssa Burns from University of Florida in the US.

Apart from boosting energy do you know that nuts can also help you lose those extra kilos? Yes. Almonds are the powerhouse of nutrition -- it is a rich source of vitamin E, calcium, phosphorous, iron and magnesium. It also contains zinc, selenium, copper and niacin. Compared to all other nuts, almonds are the most packed with nutrients and beneficial components.

For the 14-week study, the scientists gave almonds daily to 29 pairs of parents and children. Most of the adults were mothers with an average age of 35, while their children were between three and six years of age.

Researchers used an online dietary recall to find out what adults had eaten and how much. That way, researchers could measure diet quality, Burns said.

The scientists based their conclusions about improved dietary intake on participants' scores on the Healthy Eating Index (HEI), a tool used to measure diet quality and adherence to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

The results indicated that when parents and children were eating almonds, their HEI increased for total protein foods, seafood and plant proteins and fatty acids, while they ate fewer empty calories. The study was published in the journal Nutrition Research.
