Delicious Almonds! These little power-houses bring a massive amount of nutrients in just a few bites. In fact, a clinical trial performed on male smokers found that only 3 ounces of almonds per day reduced the oxidative stress, measured in the body, by up to 34% in just 4 weeks (Li et al., 2007)! For the majority of us who are non-smokers, imagine how much more these might benefit us! Additionally, being such high sources of vitamin E, they are a great source of protection against Alzheimer’s, cancer, and heart disease. Secondly, with the addition of an entire lemon, this recipe delivers 139% of your vitamin C recommendation for an entire day!
