Snack On Almonds For Better Gut Health

Snack On Almonds For Gut Health

✨new research alert ✨

Eating a handful of almonds per day increases the production of butyrate in the gut—the main fuel source for the cells lining the colon. 

When those cells in the colon are happy? That means…

✔️ healthy gut microbes can grow

✔️ the gut wall stays strong (not leaky)

✔️ nutrients are readily absorbed

Published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition… 

The study involved 87 healthy adults who were told to snack on whole almonds, ground almonds, or muffins for 4 weeks. 

Compared with those who snacked on muffins, butyrate levels were significantly higher in those who snacked on almonds.
