It’s been said that almonds are one of the World’s Healthiest Foods – and we couldn’t agree more. Truly raw almonds have been linked to a whole range of health benefits; from skin and anti-aging to boosted energy and digestive health. Plus, they’re easy to grab and munch on on the go, so there’s never a reason not to grab a handful on those busy mornings.
Truly Raw Amonds
At My Organic Juice, we use only truly raw organic almonds. These aren’t your typical almonds. Most almonds found in grocery stores are from California and pasteurized. Ours are not. We import our almonds from Spain who has kept their almonds’ genetic lineage as close as possible to heirloom almonds; meaning they’re more flavorful and hold more nutrients than their American counterparts.
At My Organic Juice, we mix our “dessert” juices with raw organic almond milk for an added rich, creamy taste. Also, almond milk is packed with all the nutrients and natural antioxidants as their uncrushed counterparts.
For thousands of years, humans have drank the milk of cows, goats and other livestock thinking if it grows a calf into a cow in record time, then it must be good for us. But scientific studies over the past decade have proven just how bad the milk of other animals is for us – like, really bad. Yes, it’s great for baby cows, but only baby cows. Just to refresh your memory, here are some statistics science has proven thus far:
- Dairy intake has been linked to increased risk of prostate cancer
- May play a role in triggering type 1 diabetes
- Linked to an increased risk in ovarian cancer
- Higher rates of mutiple sclerosis in high dairy consumption communities
- Increased Insulin growth factors which contribute to cancer
- High cholesterol
- Constipation and ear infections
- Food allergies
- Lactose intolerance
- Depletes calcium from human bones
- Increases bone fracture risk
Additionally, milk is a highly processed food full of antibiotics and genetically engineered growth hormones. Yuck!
Since these discoveries, almond milk and other nut milk substitutes have become extremely popular and easy to find. Not only have our bodies reaped its benefits, but the economy as well! At My Organic Juice, we mix our “dessert” juices with raw organic almond milk for an added rich, creamy taste. Also, almond milk is packed with all the nutrients and natural antioxidants as their uncrushed counterparts. Truly raw almonds are of the “Old World” variety meaning they’re packed with a much stronger almond extract flavor.
