Researchers believe that a diet high in magnesium plays an important role in slowing the aging process. The good news is that almonds are packed with magnesium, which most adults don’t get enough of in their diets. If you’re not a fan of almonds, you can also get magnesium by eating peanuts and cashews. And if you just can’t stand nuts, spinach also contains magnesium.
Still, there’s no denying the health benefits of almonds. They’re high in healthy fats and protein, which means they’ll keep you going and make you less likely to snack on less healthy foods.
