Almonds should be a part of your life
- Can give you great skin.
Almonds are a very good source of vitamin E. Vitamin E belongs to the family of fat-soluble antioxidants which helps protect the cell from oxidative damage. Meaning intake of these is great if you want healthy and supple skin.
The vitamin E in almonds can also protect you from heart diseases. A lot of studies have proved that.
2. Almonds can also help control the blood sugar level
Almonds have a lesser amount of carbs but a high amount of healthy fats and fibre. That is exactly why they are perfect for people who have diabetes. The magnesium that is present in almonds is one of the key factors in controlling the blood sugar levels.
