Welcome to the tasty world of peanut butter and the all the gooey goodness it has to offer. When one thinks of peanut butter, the most common association is with PB&J sandwiches and the happiness it brings to the faces of kids of all ages. But why should kids have all the fun?
Consider these health benefits of organic peanut butter while you take your next bite of peanut butter treat:
MUFAsa and PUFAsa
An abundance of healthy fats graces every jar of The Huda Bar organic peanut butter. Monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) are known to reduce blood pressure and reduce chances of coronary diseases by lowering your cholesterol. It’s also known to be an anti-inflammatory; aiding in wound healing. Psst,…it has no trans fats, even the creamy kind.
Peanut Butter is a great source of Vitamin B (Niacin & Folate), A and E; in short – Vitamin BAE. 100 gms of peanuts provide up to 85% of the recommended dietary intake of Niacin. While Vitamin E protects your cells from free radicals by helping maintain the integrity of cells of mucous membrane and the skin. You might want to apply this on your face now, but we do not recommend it.
Protein, No Whey!
Two tablespoons of peanut butter will give you 7-8 grams of protein. While that may not be enough to meet your daily protein intake, they are excellent for dieters and vegetarians looking for healthy protein sources.
Antioxidants, so radical!
Peanuts are a rich source of resveratrol, a potent antioxidant that helps in reducing the risk of cancer, cardiovascular and Alzheimer's disease, and delaying aging. It also contains p-Coumaric acid, an antioxidant that reduces the risk of stomach cancer by reducing the formation of carcinogenic nitrosamines.
Copper, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium – it’s a crystal maze in a single peanut. Zinc and Magnesium help in maintaining normal muscle and nerve functions and a healthy immune system. Phosphorous helps in protein synthesis and also in bone formation (we get 50% of our daily phosphorous needs from peanuts). Phew..we can go on, but believe us when we say that peanuts are a rich source of minerals.
