If you want to lose some weight, peanut butter can help. Peanut butter is very filling. A little bit goes a long way to keep you satiated. With its combination of protein (8g per serving) and fiber (2g per serving), it makes a big dent in your hunger pains and tamps down cravings to eat more than you’d prefer.
You can include peanut butter in your plan to keep diabetes at bay. The Journal of the American Medical Association published a study demonstrating that participants, eating 1 ounce of nuts or peanut butter for a minimum of five days per week, lowered their risk of developing diabetes by 30 percent!
Peanut butter is considered a good food in your plan to keep your heart healthy. Packed with fantastic nutrients like fiber, vitamins, minerals and potassium, peanut butter can be good for your heart. Several studies bear this out, as those who consume peanut butter regularly in their diets are less likely to develop heart disease versus those who avoid it. One study showed that diets high in monounsaturated fat, which includes foods like peanut butter, lower bad LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, while maintaining good HDL cholesterol.
