Fat

Essential for proper functioning of the body, fats provide essential fatty acids, which are not made by the body and must be obtained from food. Fats are also an important energy source. Healthy skin and hair are maintained by fat. Unsaturated fats help to lower blood cholesterol if used in place of saturated fats.

Magnesium

Magnesium is an essential mineral for human nutrition. Magnesium in the body serves several important metabolic functions. It plays a role in the production and transport of energy. It is also important for the contraction and relaxation of muscles. Magnesium is involved in the synthesis of protein, and it assists in the functioning of certain enzymes in the body.

Carbohydrates

Almonds are low in carbohydrates and have a low glycemic index value, meaning they raise blood sugar slowly, which is important for people with diabetes who try to avoid foods with high glycemic values (foods that cause blood sugar to spike). More than 80 percent of the carbohydrates found in almonds are in the form of fiber.
