Almonds are healthy: Almonds are very healthy for us. They contain unsaturated fats, vitamins, particularly Vit E, and some protein. The protein almonds contain are not going to spike your serum uric acid, which provokes gout. Almonds contain oxalate, which can crystallize in urine to promote calcium oxalate stones. Be sure you balance your diet, eat well, drink 3 liters per day, and enjoy almonds-an excellent food.
