Benefits of Adding Almond Milk to Your Diet
1. It helps with weight management. One cup of almond milk contains only 60 calories, as opposed to 146 calories in whole milk, 122 calories in 2 percent, 102 calories in 1 percent, and 86 calories in skim. 2. It keeps your heart healthy. There’s no cholesterol or saturated fat in almond milk. It’s also low in sodium and high in healthy fats (such as omega fatty acids, typically found in fish), which helps to prevent high blood pressure and heart disease. 3. It keeps your bones strong. Almond milk offers 30 percent of the recommended daily amount, as well as 25 percent of the recommended amount of vitamin D, reducing your risk for arthritis and osteoporosis and improving your immune function. 4. It keeps your skin glowing. Almond milk contains 50 percent of the recommended daily amount of vitamin E, which contains antioxidant properties essential to your skin’s health, such as protecting it against sun damage. 5. It barely impacts your blood sugar. Almond milk (with no additives) is low in carbs, which means it won’t significantly increase your blood sugar levels, reducing your risk for diabetes. 6. It contributes to muscle strength and healing. Although almond milk only contains 1 gram of protein per serving, it contains plenty of B vitamins such as iron and riboflavin, both important for muscle growth and healing. 7. It keeps your digestion in check. Almond milk contains almost one gram of fiber per serving, which is important for healthy digestion. 8. It doesn’t contain lactose. Lactose intolerance impacts about 25% of the US population, which means they have difficulty digesting the sugar in cow’s milk. 9. It doesn’t require refrigeration!!
