Protect Your Health With Peanut Butter

Surprised to read that peanut butter is a good for health. Yes it is a fact! Even though it’s higher in fat, there are some remarkable health benefits of peanut butter that stand enough to convince you to embrace it. Read on…

Beneficial for blood sugar control – Peanut butter is a great source of protein and fiber both of which are beneficial for blood sugar control. If you have diabetes, or you are at risk of diabetes, including peanut butter in your diet may be very helpful. Also it contains rich amounts of iron, which helps to maintain good circulation. Other minerals in peanut butter include calcium, copper, potassium and magnesium.

Helps to Lose Weight Since peanut butter contains fiber and protein, it can help keep you feeling fuller for a longer period of time….which means you’ll be less likely to overeat. In addition, peanut butter’s blood sugar stabilizing properties make it an effective diet ally.

Prevents Cancer The antioxidants and fiber in peanut butter help to reduce the risk of cancer. Antioxidants stop free radical activity within the body, while fiber reduces the risk of colon cancer because it keeps waste moving efficiently through the intestines.

Instant Source of Energy Peanut butter contains both protein and healthy monosaturated fats, which will give you a healthy energy boost. Additionally, peanut butter has other important nutrients, including vitamin B3, tryptophan, and manganese.

Protects Your Heart The monounsaturated fat in peanut butter has been linked with a decrease in heart disease risks. Also, a high-fiber diet is known to reduce bad (LDL)cholesterol levels. Peanut butter also contains vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant that has been associated with heart disease prevention.
