Almonds

by Pierre S Aoukar, MD and Hratch L Karamanoukian, MD
Posted: February 16


Historically used to treat hangovers and fertility at the start of modern times, the almond has a new role to play in the prevention of heart disease. Researchers at Tuft University found that the meat of the almond contains Vitamin E and the skin polyphenolics, both powerful antioxidants. Taken together, the compounds were synergistic in there protection of cholesterol oxidation. The lesson here is donít peel your almonds, donít drink too much and see a fertility specialist if your having difficulty conceiving.
