Protect Your Brain with the Mediterranean Diet
Almonds have long been considered to beneficial to hair and skin and due to the high fiber content are a fat-burning food. They also provide a rich source of several nutrients including potassium and magnesium.
The recent Mediterranean diet study included almonds, along with walnuts and hazelnuts, as part of a mixed nut combination that proved to help participants avoid the earliest signs of dementia. This isn't that surprising considering that almonds contain tryptophan, which is great for brain development.
