7. Improved Brain Activity
Studies show that getting plenty of vitamin E in your diet can help prevent aging-related cognitive decline, preserve memory, and boost your daily alertness. The magnesium in almonds strengthens the nerves in the brain.
And the protein helps to repair brain cells, thereby improving cognitive function. Keeping your brain healthy throughout life helps to ward of Alzheimer’s disease, and eating almonds can be a big part of that.
We have suggested 4 almonds as a baseline amount to consume daily, but you don’t necessarily have to stop at that if you really enjoy them.
The recommended daily limit is one ounce, or about 23 nuts. If you eat the full ounce, you’ll get about 163 calories and 14 grams of fat. That’s okay as long as you account for the calories in the rest of your daily meals. Remember that it is not just whole almonds but also products like almond flour and almond milk that count.
