Almond, and generally nuts, are healthy, but rich in calories. That’s why the recommended dose is no more than 20 almonds per day.
Almond (like other nuts) is an excellent source of healthy fats. They are generally filled with proteins and help build muscle, and also provide extra energy.
But almonds provide much more. Why only 20 almonds? 20 almonds contain about 163 calories, which is acceptable for one snack. In addition, they contain 12 grams of predominantly unsaturated fats, 3 grams of fiber and less than one gram of sugar.
Here’s what to expect if you eat 20 almonds daily:
You will have better digestion
This amount of almonds is excellent for the digestive tract. It not only improves intestinal microflora but also increases the number of good bacteria. It also reduces the number of bad bacteria associated with a number of problems, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, mental problems, asthma, skin problems …
For a long time you will be sieve!
When you get a mild desire, take some almonds. This will saturate you, and at the same time it will prevent you from overeating. To satiety comes from proteins, fibers and fats abundant in almonds. Experts say you need to chew for a long time instead of eating them in a second.
Will satisfy the daily need for riboflavin and vitamin E
Riboflavin is an important nutrient that helps prevent many health problems, including migraine, acne, muscle cramps, cervical cancer, and so on. If you eat 20 almonds you will enter about 1/5 of the recommended daily dose.
You can get the rest from eggs, banana, avocado, milk and spinach. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that can improve the health of the heart, skin and hair.
It will speed up metabolism
Almonds also contain small amounts of vitamin B complex, which stimulates metabolism. This results in accelerated fat burning, especially around the stomach.
You will have stronger bones
This amount of almonds fulfills about 20 percent of your daily need for magnesium and phosphorus, which are key to bone density.
You will improve heart health
Almonds help reduce bad cholesterol, which can cause plaque accumulation in the blood vessels. Nuts can generally reduce the risk of blood clots, which can cause a fatal heart attack.
