Functioning of the immune system

Speaking about the benefits of regular almond consumption, the panellists spoke about how almonds, which are a source of protein and are high in dietary fiber, can help in maintaining  blood sugar levels, may improve blood sugar control in people with type 2 diabetes and help lower the blood sugar impact of carbohydrate foods, which affects fasting insulin levels. Nutrients like zinc, folate and iron, that are present in almonds and other foods, contribute to normal functioning of the immune system.
