Health Benefits of Peanut Butter
Eating peanut butter in moderation and as part of an overall healthful diet may provide the following benefits:
1. Weight loss
Eating peanuts and other nuts can help people maintain their weight, or even help with weight loss. This may be because peanuts improve satiety, which is the feeling of fullness, thanks to their protein, fat, and fiber content.
2. Boosting heart health
Peanut butter contains many nutrients that can improve heart health, including:
- monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs)
- polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs)
- vitamin E
The proportion of unsaturated fats (PUFAs and MUFAs) to saturated fats in the diet plays a particularly important role in heart health. Peanut butter has a similar ratio to olive oil — which is also known as a heart-healthy option.
Many bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts include peanut butter in their diets for various reasons.
Thanks to its high-calorie content, peanut butter is an easy way to increase calorie and unsaturated fat intake.
Nut butter is also a source of protein, which is essential for building and repairing muscles. Although peanut butter is not a complete protein — meaning it does not contain all of the essential amino acids the body needs — it does count toward a person’s daily protein intake.
Spreading peanut butter on whole-grain bread makes a more complete protein meal, as the bread contains the amino acid methionine, which peanut butter lacks.
4. Managing blood sugar levels
Peanut butter is a good source of magnesium, which is an essential nutrient for people with diabetes. Continuous periods of high blood sugar may reduce magnesium levels in the body. Low magnesium levels are linked to pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes.
Take 1- 2 Servings at Breakfast or Snack based on your fitness goals.
Those with a known peanut allergy should avoid peanut butter and food containing the nuts.
