Result: Fiction according to Dashofwellness.com
Almonds as a headache relief are still up for debate. While it is proven that magnesium and vitamin B2 is beneficial for preventing migraines, almonds may not be as effective by themselves. In fact, for some people, almonds can actually trigger a migraine. It is important to talk to your doctor as well as to monitor how you feel after you eat almonds, as some people may be allergic to the salicin in almonds. For those who want to give almonds a try for their headaches, it is recommended to eat 10-12 almonds a day in order to help prevent headaches and migraines.

1. Almonds – contain more Vitamin E than any other nut. Essential for heart, nerve and muscle health. Good way to eat them is also pure almond butter on apple slices.
2. Walnuts – The best way to purchase walnuts are while they are still in the shell. Walnuts are ideal for athletes due to the anti inflammatory monounsaturated fats. They also contain alpha-linoleic acid, which are good for joints and boosts mood. Researchers have also found the antioxidant compounds in walnuts detoxify potential carcinogens in the body.
3. Pine nuts – These are natures only source of Pinoleic acid, which stimulates hormones that reduce appetite. This nut is also packed with b group vitamins copper which helps transport oxygen and immune boosting vitamin E and magnesium for muscular aches, pains and cramps.
4. Pistachio Nuts – Pistachios are a great choice for sportspeople. They contain 7 amino acids which are the bodies building blocks for protein and muscle. They also are vital for the eyes as they contain lutein and zeaxanthin. They are also loaded with calcium and magnesium.
5. Cashews – Cashews provide approximately 20 per cent of most Women’s recommended iron intake. Cashews are rich in magnesium to regulate nerve and muscle tone, and phytosterols, phytonutrients that block cholesterol absorption and lower cholesterol levels.
6. Brazil Nuts – It is important to refrigerate these nuts to keep them fresh. They have a high content of heart-healthy fats so the spoil easily. They are very high in selenium which is a trace mineral that reduces heat disease risk as well as anxiety and preventing fatigue. They are also a great source of magnesium, calcium, immune boosting zinc and iron. An all-rounder I would say and a good thing to have in the fridge for small snacks.
7. Coconuts – Coconut water is one of the most balanced sources of natural electrolytes, making it a wonderful drink for staying hydrated. Coconuts are also full of nutrients to ward off high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
How simple is this and a great idea.
Actually you don’t have to use strawberries. You could put melted chocolate in the ice-cube then put in raw almonds, or brazil nuts or even melted caramel. Heaps of things you could do and a great party dessert
Fill an ice-cube tray with melted chocolate. Add strawberries, add more chocolate, and cool.
