five rea­sons to DRINK AL­MOND MILK

Coventry Telegraph - - CELEBRITY WELLBEING -

1 AL­MOND milk is low in calo­ries – about 50 calo­ries per 200ml – mak­ing it a great sub­sti­tute for full-fat milk, help­ing you to lose or main­tain your cur­rent weight.

2 THERE’S no choles­terol in al­mond milk. It’s also low in sodium and high in healthy fats (such as omega fatty acids, typ­i­cally found in fish), which help to pre­vent high blood pres­sure and heart dis­ease.

3 WHILE it doesn’t of­fer as much cal­cium as cow’s milk, it still con­tains 30% of the rec­om­mended daily amount, as well as vi­ta­min D, re­duc­ing your risk of os­teo­poro­sis and im­prov­ing your im­mune func­tion. Plus, these two nu­tri­ents work to­gether to main­tain healthy bones.

4 IT CON­TAINS vi­ta­min E, which is es­sen­tial for healthy skin, nails and hair.

5 AL­MOND milk (with­out ad­di­tives) is low in carbs, so it won’t in­crease your blood sugar. It has a low gly­caemic index rat­ing – your body will use the carbs as en­ergy so the sug­ars aren’t stored as fat.
