It`s hard to imagine that a natural food that tastes as good as an almond can have such a profound beneficial effect on health.
In a report from Sin Chew Daily a study showed that almonds have a high quantity of a type of amino acid called arginine, which helps to relax blood vessels and improve blood circulation. The study also added that if almond was not a person`s cup of tea, other food items that are high in arginine were beans, salmon and wheat, reports the Star Online.
Quoting a report from US magazine Esquire, the daily also reported that to have a healthy sex life, men should reduce the size of their belly. Men should also do more exercises to strengthen their lower abdomen and cut down on the level of cholesterol in their blood.
A recent report stated that almonds are another major source of essential fatty acids. Almonds provide the basis for the healthy production of male hormones that are important in regulating sex-drive. The smell of almonds is also found to arouse passion in female.
Apart from these benefits we must, especially diabetics should, make a point of eating them raw everyday as it helps stabilize blood sugar and protects the heart.
The daily added that these findings were also confirmed by Chinese medical practitioners.
