👉🏽ALMONDS are a healthy snack. But are you aware of what it’s doing to your GUT health? Let’s take a look:
💎INCREASES GOOD BACTERIA:
Significant increases in the populations of Bifidobacterium spp. and Lactobacillus spp. were observed in fecal samples as a consequence of almond consumption (Liu et al., 2014).
✅REDUCES EXCESS ESTROGEN RECIRCULATION:
Almonds induce changes in bacterial enzyme activities, specifically a significant increase in fecal β-galactosidase activity and decreases in fecal β-glucuronidase, nitroreductase and azoreductase activities (Liu et al., 2014). Remember I did a post back on Calcium D-Glucarate, it appears almonds may be able to help this process too (DM me for more info).
Almonds are known to have a number of nutritional benefits, including cholesterol-lowering effects and protection against diabetes. They are also a good source of minerals and vitamin E, associated with promoting health and reducing the risk for chronic disease (Mandalari et al., 2008).
Almonds can represent another tool in our box to enhance gut health and improve the microbiome. They possess important health benefits. Who’s with me?
