Almond Nut Butter
Our almond butter is 100% natural. We use almonds with the ‘skin’ on (not blanched) and simply roast, grind and bottle.
Almonds are a rich source of vitamin E, protein and monounsaturated fats, the healthy fat that helps lower bad cholesterol LDL. They are also rich in dietary fibre and essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and other antioxidants. A diet rich in almonds helps reduce the risks of heart disease, diabetes and other chronic illnesses.
Almond butter is a good source of the healthy monounsaturated fats our bodies need. These fats are associated with lowering the risk of heart disease.
Eating almonds offer antioxidant action from Vitamin E and help lower cholesterol.
A small serving of almond butter contains a generous amount of magnesium–which boosts heart health by promoting the blow of blood, oxygen, and nutrients–and potassium, important for good blood pressure and heart health.
Eating almond butter helps keep blood sugar stable (unlike, for example, carbohydrates that may cause blood sugar to increase and crash).
The low-glycemic index and protective antioxidants of almonds make almond butter a wise choice for those at risk from diabetes. This is because they don’t cause a sharp increase in blood sugar and insulin when consumed, and they even seem to help when you eat them along with foods that have a higher glycemic index.
Consuming at least four servings of nuts a week reduces the risk of coronary heart disease by more than 35%.
