Almonds contain a mixture of health-promoting nutrients including healthy fats, fibre, protein and antioxidants. Antioxidants can reduce the levels of oxidative stress in the body thereby reducing cell damage and helping to protect against conditions such as cancer, autoimmune disorders, ageing, arthritis, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative disorders (1).
The addition of nuts such as almonds to the diet could also aid weight management (2).Bananas are an excellent source of potassium, a potassium-rich diet can help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease (3). They also contain vitamin B6 which plays an essential role in our metabolism, brain function and keeping our cells healthy (4).
Oats are among one of the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat, they are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants as well as being a source of fibre.
