Can a high-fat food be good for you?
Almonds challenge this oxymoron perfectly well. It's rich in monounsaturated fatty acids that have a heart-protective role and are excellent for your brain and skin health. Almonds are also rich in Vitamin E, magnesium and potassium, all of which go hand in hand to maintain normal blood pressure, improve blood circulation and maintain healthy heart function. Trace minerals like copper and manganese found in almonds have added to their health quotient. Both copper and manganese are needed in very small quantities, but have an important role to play. Eat in small quantities (4-7 pieces) daily to get a whole entourage of health benefits.
