Almond is our #7 food choice for men
We can all agree that, enjoyed in moderation, almonds make a healthy snack, right? The benefits of almonds include the fact that they’re a source of protein and fiber. They’re also a source of vitamin E, magnesium and manganese, all nutrients linked with sexual health.
Benefits of almonds specific to men
What’s in almonds that’s going to put lead in your pencil? Well, you see these nutrient-packed tree nuts contain an amino acid, argenine, which helps relax blood vessels and promote healthy circulation. You might have heard it discussed in conjunction with heart health. But don’t forget that without good circulation, you can’t have a healthy sex life. That’s why this benefit of almonds is so important to men. Learn more about arginine on Web MD.
Another one of the benefits of almonds specific to men is their high zinc content. Zinc is a necessary nutrient for testosterone production. And although testosterone is a key hormone for men and women, we know that the impact of low testosterone on men can be drastic and include erectile dysfunction.
If raw or roasted almonds aren’t your cup of tea, consider almond butters. You can also try almond milk but the benefits of almond milk are not as impressive as what you get from straight almonds.
Another one of the benefits of nuts
A mere handful of almonds will deliver vitamin B6 and a nice dose of energy. And these benefits of almonds come with only a small amount of monounsaturated fats. The B6 will help send signals to your brain, lower cholesterol, and aid in the production of insulin, niacin, hemoglobin and antibodies.
