Almond is the only nut that alkalises the body, all other nuts acidify.[i] In Ayurvedic medicine it is revered for its ability to support the reproductive system, particularly in men by improving sperm count. Almonds can be eaten raw as a snack but those with a weak digestion should soak them overnight first & remove the skins as this activates the enzymes & increases their nutrient value. Like all nuts they are an excellent source of plant protein while being particularly high in Vitamin E & Manganese.
