Hey there! Do you know that almonds are ranked in the Top 3 Healthiest Nuts among all? Well, we are not surprise 😜 because this is the reason why we choose almonds over other nuts to make our butter. Of course, this is not the only reason... 😉
Almonds can be recognised as the treasure chest loaded with nutrients, vitamins and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron that support bodily functions. And here is our Top 3 nutrients that leads us to have almonds as our first choice.
1.The Heart Guardian - Monounsaturated Fats
Say goodbye to heartbreaker 💔 Ehem… (*chuckle*) what we mean is many studies have shown that almonds can help lower bad cholesterol levels and digest unhealthy saturated fats that we consume from other food. They can also reduce the risk of heart disease by promoting healthy blood circulation while maintaining the ideal blood pressure levels. Therefore, almonds are the best nuts with the name of “cardiac defenders”.

2. Weight Management Helper - High Dietary Fibre & Protein
We understand that the fear of gaining weight from eating nuts has always been the concern of the dieters. But it is a “don’t worry” from us! 💪🏻 Almonds have higher dietary fibre among most of the nuts. This can improve your digestive system, and the amount of protein in almonds can help you to feel full for longer, and cutting down the unnecessary craving for snacks. So, having almonds in your daily diet may reduce the overall calorie intake.
