Almonds were among the first cultivated crop starting 10,000 years ago. Almonds are another excellent source of vitamin E. They also contain manganese, magnesium, and fiber. Among the health benefits almonds offer are a relief from constipation, respiratory disorders, coughs, heart disorders, anemia, impotency, and diabetes.
They are also known to help maintaining a healthy hair, skin care and dental care. A surprise considering 40% of the world’s total amount of almond are actually used by chocolate and other candy makers. A small handful or a quarter of a cup of almonds is a healthful snack that may benefit the immune system and a good daily habit. By the way, almonds rely 100% on bees for pollination so no bees – no almonds.
