Health Benefits of Peanuts
When it comes to eating peanuts, peanut butter, and peanut oil, the health benefits of peanuts are clear. Large population studies show that, when eaten in small amounts daily, peanuts reduce the risk of many chronic diseases (Sabate, 2006; 2009). Human feeding studies also show that peanuts help manage weight and many peanut vitamins are key nutrients (Sabate, 2006; 2009).
The myriad of healthy components in peanuts offer natural nutrition to all populations and age groups. You can feel satisfied filling up on a crunchy pack of peanuts or a spoonful of peanut butter, knowing that each bite will lead to a better body and a better diet.
