Alomnd Lowers LDL-Cholesterol and Reduce Your Risk of Heart Disease. Almonds are high in monounsaturated fats, the health-promoting fat associated with reduced risk of heart disease. Almonds are also rich in Vitamin E, which reduces heart disease risk due to its antioxidantion action as well as due to the LDL-lowering effect of almonds’ monounsaturated fats. When almonds are substituted for more traditional fats in human feeding trials, LDL cholesterol can be reduced from 8 to 12%.

In addition to healthy fats and vitamin E, a quarter-cup of almonds contains 62 mg of magnesium plus 162 mg of potassium. When there is enough magnesium, veins and arteries are clear and they breathe a sigh of relief as Magnesium help lessens resistance and improves the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. Potassium on other hand is an important electrolyte involved in nerve transmission and the contraction of all muscles including the heart is essential for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function.  Almonds promote your cardiovascular health by providing 162 mg of potassium and only 0.2 mg of sodium, making almonds an especially good choice to in protecting against high blood pressure and atherosclerosis.

Almonds have been found to lessen after-meal surges in blood sugar to help protect against diabetes and cardiovascular diseases by lessening the increase in cholesterol-damaging free radicals that accompanies large elevations in blood sugar.

Almonds with skins provide flavonoids (found in almond skins), which team up with the vitamin E (found in their pulp) to more than double the antioxidant action compared to when consumerd seperately. Twenty potent antioxidant flavonoids have been identified in almond skins.
