Eat Fat & Lose Weight? This Superfood Nut Can Do This & More…
Check Out the Science Behind the Power of Raw, Organic, Non-Pasteurized Almonds
Brain Function: Research has revealed that eating almonds provides a significant improvement in learning and memory. How can this be? Subjects eating almonds tested for higher levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin as well as tryptophan, an essential amino acid which is a component of serotonin. Serotonin + Tryptophan = enhanced learning and memory!
Reduce LDL Cholesterol: One study confirmed that almonds are literally just as effective at lowering LDL cholesterol than statin drugs, but obviously without the side effects and toxicity of taking cholesterol medication.3
Decrease Risk of Heart Disease & Control Blood Sugar: A clinical trial found that patients with type 2 diabetes who consumed almonds not only showed a decrease in cholesterol levels, but blood sugar and body fat too!4 The study concluded that incorporating almonds into a healthy diet has beneficial effects on fat levels, glycemic control, and lipid profile (heart condition risk factor including cholesterol levels), therefore potentially decreasing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Nutritional Powerhouse: Almonds are high in magnesium and the antioxidant vitamin E as well as B2. They also contain protein, calcium, potassium, iron, and vitamins B1 and B6. Basically, they’re loaded with the good stuff, plus they’re delicious!
“These are the best tasting almonds I have found in a long time. They actually have the flavor of almond extract which is rare. Most almonds, even organic ones in the health food stores, don’t taste anything like these. LOVE them!” – C.M., Sunfood Customer
