RAW almonds are nuts full of healthy fats, vitamins and minerals
Almonds are the oldest nuts coming from the Middle East. They are the fruit of a tree (Amygdalus communis) which is hidden in a hard shell, much like walnuts, but the shape of their shell is elongated, not circular. Almonds contain the highest share of valuable nutrients among all nuts. By regularly consuming them, you can avoid diabetes of the type 2, but also obesity. They are also a prevention of cardiovascular disease.
Almonds are rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acids such as oleic acid and palmitoleic acids that help reduce LDL known as "bad cholesterol" and increase HDL, i.e. "good cholesterol" in the human body. Almonds contain B-complex vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamine, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6, and folate that act as enzymes during cell substrate metabolism inside the human body.
These are gluten-free foods, so they are a favourite ingredient for people who suffer from celiac disease.
