Loaded with vitamins and nutrients, almonds pack a considerably nutritious punch when eaten in moderation. In fact, the Nuts For Almonds website refers to the almond as "one of the most nutritious of all nuts." A 1/4-cup serving of dry roasted almonds provides approximately 45 percent of your daily recommended allowance of manganese and vitamin E. Additionally, the nut provides nearly 25 percent of the recommended daily allowance of magnesium.
According to the Hair Boutique website, magnesium is "an essential mineral for growing healthy strands." In fact, a deficiency of magnesium within the body has been linked to hair loss. When consumed properly, magnesium and other nutrients help the body to not only maintain proper functioning, but also encourage the healthy growth of hair, skin and nails.
