Among the earliest cultivated foods in history, Almonds are the most nutritious of all nuts. Almonds are loaded with protein, fiber, calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin E and other antioxidants and phytochemicals. Munching on almonds helps people feel satisfied and less inclined to overeat at dinner!

Ninety percent of the fat in almonds is unsaturated fat, and frequent consumption, as a result, could help lower blood cholesterol levels. One study showed that three ounces of almonds a day actually lowered a person's cholesterol by 14 percent. Of course, since almonds are a plant based food, they contain no cholesterol.

Almonds have been shown to promote good health, especially when they are part of a healthful diet consisting of fruits, vegetables, and low fat whole grain products. Almonds contain the right kind of fats-monounsaturated and some polyunsaturated, so they help lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL), the bad cholesterol, while not touching the high-density, or good cholesterol levels.

The folic acid in almonds is believed to help lower levels of homocystein, the amino acid that is thought to contribute to the buildup of fatty plaque in the arteries. And studies have shown links between almond consumption and lower risk of cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, and other chronic illnesses.

In a nutshell, almonds are an excellent source of fiber, vitamin E, zinc, selenium, copper, potassium, phosphorus, biotin, riboflavin, niacin and iron.
