Almonds are not the only nut with health benefits, but they are super good for you. Almonds help to stop the risk of arrhythmias and cut down the bad cholesterol LDL. They contain sterols that lower the absorption of LDL from the foods you eat. Some cholesterol is made by your body and not from anything that you eat.

     Almonds also have unsaturated fat that help the liver to limit the amount of LDL that it makes. At the same time it helps the liver to manufacture HDL the good cholesterol.
