1.Bonus: raw, soaked or roasted almonds?
According to ayurvedic medicine, both raw and roasted almonds contain the same nutrients and thus, have the same benefits. On the other hand, soaking almonds overnight and peeling them can help reduce their tannin levels. Oral sources indicate that if ingested in great quantities, tannins might prevent nutrient absorption, but recent studies have found no evidence supporting this.
If you consume almonds on a regular basis, you’re probably familiar with these benefits.
