Almonds are not just for good for memory; they are also good for our heart. Indians have been found to benefit by this the most. Adding almonds to our daily diet can reduce the chances of dyslipidemia (elevated cholesterol or fat (lipid) levels) occurring among the Indian population, who are more prone to cardiovascular diseases.
‘The best way to take almonds is to soak them in water overnight and eat them in the morning. Soaked one is healthier because almond’s skin rich in tannin can inhibit nutrient absorption, so it is best to peel the skin off and let the nut release all nutrients easily.’
Almonds are considered to the next big superfood because of their nutrient-rich profile."Daily consumption of 45 gms of almonds in any form can help reduce dyslipidemia." said a lead authority of the study. Another study in India has been included in this study to show the known benefits of almonds. Almonds can reduce abdominal fat, which is also one of the reasons for metabolic syndrome and ischemic heart disease.
