The outer layer of bran of almonds can block calcium absorption and also affect the amount of magnesium, iron, copper, and zinc which we consume. Soaked almonds have higher B Vitamins. They help in the breakdown of gluten which neutralizes toxins in colons and makes proteins more available for absorption. It is also to be kept in mind that almonds have calories and hence should be consumed in controlled quantities. Excess consumption of almonds can be bad for the heart as well as your body weight.
