Almonds are a powerhouse of a variety of nutrients that supports overall health. Ounce for ounce, almonds are one of the most nutrient-dense nuts on earth. Compared to other tree nuts, almonds are highest in fiber, protein, calcium, riboflavin, niacin and vitamin E. In fact, just one 8 oz. glass provides all the nutrition of 30 almonds, including 31% DV of vitamin E. This is an antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage and promotes healthy skin and hair.
