Almonds are an excellent source of vitamin E, an antioxidant thought to be the secret to anti-aging

It is suggested that we should consume 6.5mg~7.0mg vitamin E per day, about 20 almonds.  Additional to vitamin E, almond, we also need vitamin B2 in our daily food. The latter is indispensable for burning fat in our body.  Almonds are an ample source of both, vitamin E and vitamin B2.

Oleic acid and linoleic acid in Almonds
Oleic and linoleic acid can help reduce the amount of “bad” cholesterol (LDC) in our body, leaving alone “good” cholesterol (HDC), resulting in less blood clots and less chance suffering from heart related illnesses.

Almonds assist building resistance to AGE (Advance glycation end-product) which relates proteins with sugar.

In AGE, our bodies consist of both sugar and protein. But the storage of salivary gland extracts (SGE) associated with AGE is considered to be one of the causes of aging and common lifestyle disease.

Eating almonds helps excrete AGE and prevent its storage in our body. Adding almonds to our diet we can slow down aging and become less likely developing lifestyle associated diseases.

As for wrinkles, spots, and blemishes, the sole enemies to maintaining beautiful skin are connected with AGEs. Almonds contain large amount of antioxidants and vitamin E providing us an added antiaging effect.
