Soaked almonds are a real natural miracle, as they are rich in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, magnesium, zinc, calcium, and omega-3 fatty acids.
Moreover, the skin contains an enzyme inhibitor which offers as a protective barrier for the seed until it’s properly moisturized for the process of germination. Apparently, soaking activates this enzyme.
Almond consumers (defined as those eating about 1 ounce (28g) per day) tended to be more physically active and less likely to smoke than their non-almond eating counterparts, suggesting that including almonds as a regular part of the diet is associated with a portfolio of healthy lifestyle attributes.
The body easily digests soaked almonds and absorbs their nutrients. These are the health benefits of the consumption of almonds:
The consumption of a handful of almonds daily will energize the body, and the copper, manganese, and riboflavin improve the metabolic rate.
Regulated blood pressure
Potassium effectively regulates blood pressure, and these nuts are also low in sodium which helps the regulation of fluctuating blood pressure.
Strong heart health
Soaked almonds are high in potassium, monounsaturated fat, and protein and potassium, which are beneficial for heart health. Plus, soaked almonds soothe the inflammation that damages arteries, the vitamin E lowers the risk of developing heart disease, and magnesium prevents sudden heart attacks.
Vitamin E and calcium control cholesterol levels.
Almonds are rich in compounds that strengthen the bones and teeth and help you prevent osteoporosis.
Almonds are abundant in nutrients that improve the brain function. For instance, riboflavin and L-carnitine improve the brain activity in neural pathways and lower the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
Almonds prevent toxic buildups and help the way of food through the colon, which in turn prevents colon cancer.
Replacing between-meal snacks with tree nuts or almonds led to more nutrient-rich diets that were lower in empty calories and sodium and had more favorable fatty acid profiles. Food pattern modeling using NHANES data can be used to assess the likely nutritional impact of dietary guidance.
