Good for brain: Almond is a source of many nutrients which help in development of the brain. Almond induces high intellectual level and has been considered as an essential food item for growing children. Many mothers give almonds soaked in water to their children daily in the morning (2-3 pieces of soaked almonds are good enough, you can also remove the outer shell if it causes allergy to you.

Good for heart: Mono-saturated fat, protein and potassium contained in almonds are good for the heart. Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant and reduces the risk of heart diseases. The presence of magnesium in almonds helps to avoid heart attacks. Almonds help reduce C-reactive protein which causes artery-damaging inflammation. Almond is also a source of folic acid. They therefore help to reduce the level of homocystein, which causes fatty plaque buildup in arteries.

பாதாமின் நன்மைகள் பற்றி எழுதி இருக்கிறீர்கள். நானும் almond ஆயில் கண்களின் கீழ் கருவளையத்தை போக்கும் என்று எதிலோ படித்து பல முறை apply செய்து பார்த்தேன். ஆனால் போகவே இல்லை. olive ஆயில் , allovira என்று எல்லாம் try செய்தும் பயனில்லை. கருவளையம் நீக்க வேறு எதாவது வழி erukiratha ?
