The fruit of almond tree is a drupe. It consists of an outer hull and a hard shell. Inside that hard shell is the seed, and that seed is almond that we eat.
Almonds are loaded with fiber, and rich in biotin, vitamin E and manganese. Biotin, also known as vitamin B7, is one of essential nutrients required for a healthy metabolism, and it can help strengthen hair and nails.
Some of the health benefits of consuming almonds include lower cholesterol, reduced risk of cancer and heart disease risk.
