A little about Almonds
The almond tree originated in the middle east and soon spread as far as North Africa and India. The almond tree produces a fruit that contains the drupe, which is what we know of as the almond. A drupe may appear to look like a nut but it is not, therefore in botanical terms, almonds aren’t a true nut. Almonds are grown across the world with America being the greatest producer, followed by Australia and Spain.
Organic almonds are alkalising, which means they are gentle on your body and are also good source of magnesium, calcium and iron. Organic almonds are high in protein and may play an important role in preventing colon cancer due to their high fibre levels. Organic almonds also contain flavenoids and are a great source of vitamin E. Both of these nutrients are known to be potent anti-oxidants that can reduce inflammation in the body and can slow-down aging. Organic almonds are high in protein and contains mono-unsaturated fats, which can reduce the bad LDL cholesterol and increase the good HDL cholesterol in the body.
