Learn More About The Health Benefits Of Eating Peanut Butter According To Health Experts

Peanut butter is one of the best high-protein, high-fat nutritional food sources.

Peanut butter is rich in protein, fat, monounsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E, B vitamins, folic acid, tryptophan, and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, and iron

Patients with high blood pressure can eat peanut butter appropriately. Studies have found that peanut butter contains a large amount of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA). MUFA has the effects of lowering cholesterol, lowering blood pressure, and lowering blood lipids.

It also Improved Heart Health. Peanut butter also contains omega-6. This fatty acid lowers bad (LDL) cholesterol and increases protective (HDL) cholesterol. In addition, peanuts are a natural source of arginine, an amino acid that may prevent heart and vascular disease by promoting good blood vessel function.

Peanut butter contains tryptophan. Tryptophan can promote the secretion of serotonin and melatonin. At the same time, it can regulate the body's biological clock, which is very helpful for sleep at night.

It manages blood sugar levels. Peanut butter is a relatively low-carbohydrate food that contains good amounts of fats and protein, as well as some fiber.

These characteristics mean that peanut butter, with no added sugar, does not have a significant impact on blood glucose levels. This means it can be a good option for those with diabetes.

However, peanut butter is a high-calorie food, 100 grams of peanut butter contains 588 calories. Eating too much peanut butter can easily lead to obesity.

It is recommended to eat only 2 tablespoons of peanut butter (approximately 30 grams) a day.
