Some researchers are calling almonds a "super-food" with specific heart benefits. They gave 50 grams (2 handfuls) of almonds to an assorted group of healthy middle aged men, healthy young men and young men with heart disease risks. A similar control group ate as they normally would. After 1 month, the experimental group had lower blood pressure, improved blood flow and increased antioxidant levels.
PositiveTip: Add a serving of almonds or almond butter to your daily diet: your heart will thank you.
