According to the analysis, we cannot consider chironji, as a substitute for almonds. Almonds are much healthier than chironji seeds.

However, you can use chironji for strengthening purposes and people doing vigorous physical work can try eating chironji seeds.

Another fact is that chironji seeds are very Unctuousness in nature, which makes it heavy to digest. In most of people, it causes loss of appetite and constipation. These effects are obvious and occur in many patients with impotency.
