A pilot study by the University of California published in Phytotherapy Research found that a daily snack of almonds in place of other nut-free snacks improved measures of wrinkle width and severity in postmenopausal women. (Postmenopause is formally defined as the time after which a woman has experienced twelve (12) consecutive months of amenorrhea (lack of menstruation) without a period.
By the end of the study at 16 weeks, photographic image analysis showed significant improvements for participants in the almond snack ground compared to the control group. Wrinkle width decreased by 10%; wrinkle severity decreased by 9%. There were no significant changes in skin barrier function between groups.
Almonds are a rich source of antioxidant vitamin E and deliver essential fatty acids and polyphenols.
Amount of almonds to eat a day: About two 1-oz servings.
May your days be filled with good health, good friends, good food, and most of all; much love,
