Disease Prevention and Risk Reduction
According to the Medical College of Wisconsin, almond milk is lower in potassium and phosphorus than regular milk or soy milk. Therefore, it is a great alternative for people with chronic or acute kidney disease who must restrict their intake of these minerals.
A 2008 study published in the journal Metabolism reported on the effects of almonds on blood-glucose regulation in people with high blood cholesterol. Almonds reduced a blood marker of insulin secretion. This explains why eating nuts reduces the risk of coronary heart disease.
Another study published in the Journal of Nutrition showed that antioxidants in almonds reduced blood markers of oxidative stress.
