Almond milk contains no cholesterol or saturated fats because it is a plant-based milk. High cholesterol levels are a precursor to heart attacks and strokes. Replacing saturated fats with healthy fats, such as omega fatty acids, is an effective way to protect the body against coronary heart disease. The fat found in almond milk is beneficial for the heart. It plays an important role in decreasing the risk of metabolic syndrome disorder, which occurs as a result of high blood pressure and extra body fat around the stomach. Drinking almond milk on a regular basis also ensures that the body receives enough potassium, which acts as a vasodilator to reduce tension and strain on the heart. Potassium also helps to maintain a normal blood pressure.
