The Power of Peanuts
March 4, 2020
Feeling guilty as you polish off your PB jar week after week?
Like many other nut butter addicts, I’m sure you’ve wondered “should I be eating this much PB?”
Well, you’ll be happy to hear that if you’re eating all-natural nut butters like Mayver’s then you are in the clear!
Research has found that eating peanuts each day can actually help with your heart health! This research suggests that consuming 40g of most nuts per day (including peanuts ), as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.
If you eat peanuts, (or even better) Peanut Butter every day, you are eating a source of protein, vitamins, minerals, and more! Peanuts, in particular, have more protein than any other nut, 7g per serving! Peanuts contain more than 30 essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, magnesium, folate, copper and phosphorus, and are also a source of fibre and good fats.
Peanuts are a source of niacin, an important B vitamin that helps to convert food to energy, aiding the digestive and nervous system. Peanuts are also a source of magnesium, which is important for processing cholesterol, and nutrients like carbohydrates and protein.
So sub out that extra bar of choccy and sub in some tasty PB!
