Fortunately, the company has yet to receive any complaints or reports of illness from the said jars. But the company took the initiative to recall jars with best-by dates ranging from 06/16/2017, 08/15/2017, and 08/30/2017. So far, 19 locations across Oregon, southern Washington State and northern California had distributed the jar. Moreover, the only affected product was the almond butter with UPC Code 4060010401.

5 Astounding Health Benefits of Almond Milk

Eliminating milk as part of our morning beverage and dairy products has been difficult for us at first.

One of the best healthy foods we substitute over dairy products is the almond milk.

Almond milk may be dairy-free and contains less calcium, but it contains nutrients and vitamins our body can greatly benefit into. For one, almond milk is a healthy fat richer in omega-3 that aids in weight loss, among others.

In this blog post, you’re about to find out why you should incorporate almond milk to your diet. Here are the top 5 astounding benefits you get from drinking this healthy milk.

1. It helps lower down blood pressure

Almond milk contains the exact same amounts of minerals and vitamins you can find in soy and dairy products. It contains vitamin D and phosphorous that helps promote blood flow circulation and frees the blockage and clog in your veins that cause blood pressure.

What’s great about almond milk is it is naturally soy-free and lactose-free. So it’s safe to consume whether you have an intolerance problem or not.

2. It Lowers Down Your Risk to Heart Disease

It has no cholesterol, sodium, and saturated fats that helps decrease inflammation throughout your body. The omega-3 fatty acids found in almond milk decrease triglycerides (that can damage blood vessels and lead to heart disease and stroke). Aside from that, it contains potassium and magnesium that are good for your brain.

3. It Promotes Bone Growth

Almond milk may not offer much calcium as dairy products do, but it does offer at least 30 percent of your recommended daily intake. Calcium, along with its vitamin D reduces your risk of arthritis and osteoporosis. These two vitamins are known to promote healthy bones and teeth formation.

4. It keeps your skin’s glow

Almond milk contains about 50% of vitamin E and antioxidants that protects your skin from sun’s damage. It also repairs your damaged skin to maintain your natural, youthful glow.

5. It Does Not Impact Your Blood Sugar Level

Lastly, raw, unprocessed, almond milk is very low in carbs and sugar. That’s why we recommend buying this one as it does not spike your blood sugar level. Unlike dairy products that contain lactose (milk’s natural sugar) that contribute to weight gain. Because it is low-glycemic in nature, your body will use the carbs for energy rather than storing them as fats.
