Choose raw almonds and almond butter. The benefits can be experienced in their pure form, and hence not when roasted. When almonds are roasted they lose many of the healing properties of the omega oils that they are so rich in. Almonds are rich in:

  • protein
  • dietary fiber
  • omega 6′s that lower LDL, the bad cholesterol, and have been shown in a myriad of studies to reduce the risk of heart disease.
  • vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant needed for many functions of the human body.
  • copper, which amongst other things, is said to thwart the growth of gray hairs. not sure it’s working in my case.
