Amazing health benefits of Activated Nuts
Almonds are among the world’s most popular tree nuts because they are highly nutritious and rich in healthy fats, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. There are many major health benefits of almonds including delivering a massive amount of nutrients, they are loaded with antioxidants, high in vitamin E, they can assist with blood sugar control, lower cholesterol levels and much more.
Nuts are known to be healthy for being a good source of essential fats, minerals, protein and antioxidants. Especially for vegans, vegetarians and people who eat less meat, nuts are a substantial part of their diet. But do they have any downsides? They may make us feel full, heavy and can be rough on our digestion. If you want to enjoy nuts in bigger quantities, and still have a good gut feeling, we recommend activated nuts.
Nutmad can provide you with plain activated almonds for your super green smooth bowl. They are great as a snack but also suitable for baking or cooking. They soak them in filtered water for at least 12 hours to neutralise their natural chemicals, which bind the nutrients nuts to contain. This increases the nutritional value of the nuts, allows the body to absorb as many nutrients from them as possible, and makes them easier to digest.
Nuts are a great source of plant-based protein, fibre, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals, which all help to boost the intake of essential nutrients in any diet – plant-based or animal-based. While they are not high in B12, they contain a whole spectrum of nutrients that help to optimise overall health and well-being.
