Overview

A high-fat nut that is extremely beneficial to your health? Believe it or not, that describes almonds in a nutshell. See what I did there?

Organic almonds are rich in monounsaturated fats, which are crucial for maintaining good heart health. These fats help lower cholesterol in the heart, and most of us would be wise to replace trans and animal fats with monounsaturated fats. Almonds are also an amazing source of protein, fibre, calcium, zinc, vitamin E and other minerals. The presence of magnesium and copper also make almonds a great food for improving our daily energy! Almonds are highly appreciated as being powerhouses of energy and quality nutrients. In organic almonds, these features are more noticeable.

The health benefits of almonds are starting to gain traction across North America. Although the popular nut is native to the Middle East, the United States has recently become the largest producer of almonds. However, non-organic almonds are a risky purchase, since their high oil content makes it easy for them to absorb harmful pesticides. Our Real Organic Almonds can be enjoyed pesticide free!  Certified Organic by Pro-Cert.

Health Benefits of Almonds

The health benefits of organic almonds are extensive, which is easily explained by their high content of nutrients, minerals, and vitamins. Their consumption promotes overall health, strengthens the immune system, and protects against some serious illnesses, such as:

 Cardiovascular diseases  - Organic almonds have the highest concentration of monounsaturated fats among nuts. This makes them very helpful in promoting heart and blood vessel health. Regular consumption of them results in increasing the level of high-density lipoproteins (good cholesterol) and lowering the level of low-density lipoproteins (bad cholesterol). This prevents the formation of blood clots in the blood vessels and lowers the risk of stroke. Vitamin E, folic acid, potassium, and magnesium are acknowledged to be instrumental for maintaining cardiovascular health.

 Diabetes  - Due to the high content of dietary fibre, organic almonds have a low glycemic index, which helps regulate the pace of absorption and processing of glucose when it enters the blood. They also help prevent the rising of glucose and insulin levels after meals. Being rich in fats, they curb the appetite, thus regulating sugar levels in the blood.

 Cancer  - Organic almonds, especially the outer layer, are a rich source of antioxidants such as phenols, flavonoids, and phenolic acids. This makes these nuts invaluable for supporting the immune system and protecting cells against damage by free radicals, which is thought to be one of the causes of cancer. Additionally, they contain alpha-tocopherol, a form of vitamin E, which improves red cells concentration in the blood and inhibits cell growth in cancerous tumors.

 Osteoporosis  - Phosphorus is one of the minerals that is responsible for the density and strength of the bones. One ounce of organic almonds provides 15% of the daily requirement of this mineral.
