Almonds are high in vitamin E.

Vitamin E is a family of fat-soluble antioxidants. These antioxidants are found within the structure of cell membranes in your body, protecting your cells from oxidative damage.

Almonds are among the world’s best sources of vitamin E. Just 1 oz provides 48% of the DV.

Several studies have linked higher vitamin E intake with lower rates of heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease. However, more research is needed to fully confirm these benefitsUFABET  

 Almonds can assist with blood sugar control.

Nuts are low in carbs but high in healthy fats, protein, and fiber.

This makes them a perfect choice for people with diabetes.

Another boon of almonds is their remarkably high amount of magnesium.

Magnesium is a mineral involved in more than 300 bodily processes, including blood sugar management.

The daily value for magnesium is 420 milligrams (mg). And 2 oz of almonds provides almost half that amount: 153 mg of this important mineral.

Interestingly, it is estimated that at least a quarter of people with type 2 diabetes have a deficiency in magnesium. Adequate magnesium intake has been associated with a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes. And improved blood sugar management in people with diabetes.

Magnesium may also be linked to reductions in insulin resistance among people with and without diabetes.

This indicates that foods high in magnesium. Such as almonds, may help prevent metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes, both of which are major health concerns.
