May Improve Cholesterol Profile
Most of us are well aware of how beneficial it is to consume more monounsaturated fatty acids (so-called MUFA) that reduce the level of “bad” cholesterol in our blood. Almonds can help you with this: they are full of MUFA, which increases the amount of “good” cholesterol and fights its “bad” counterpart.
Vitamin E contained in the nut also plays an important role in the “battle” with “bad” cholesterol. It works in close collaboration with MUFA and together they do a great job on the improvement of your cholesterol profile. And minerals like magnesium and potassium help to control your blood pressure.
