Top 5 Health Benefits Of Peanut Butter

1- Heart Friendly
2- More Potassium
3- Healthy Fat
4- Energy Booster
5- Fiber Rich

1- Heart Friendly
Someone like you and me, who clearly loves their peanut butter, asked the Harvard Medical School if the health benefits of peanut butter extended to heart health. And despite your misgivings, the answer is yes! Peanut butter has its share of saturated food, but like olive oil, it also has a high percentage of unsaturated helping it qualify itself for the healthy camp.

2- More Potassium
Most of us have way too much sodium in our diets and as you probably already know, sodium can wreak havoc on your cardiovascular system. Peanut butter acts as an excellent source of potassium, and potassium can go a long way towards countering the dangers of sodium.

3- Healthy Fat
A common worry about eating peanut butter is the fat content. However, as mentioned above peanut butter contains more unsaturated fat than saturated fat. This means, it is actually a great source of “healthy fats”. A healthy body needs a good supply of healthy fats and like olive oil and avocado, peanut butter is a friendly fat food.

4- Energy Booster
As already discussed, peanut butter contains good amounts of healthy fats and protein. This means it contains plenty of calories that will give you lots of energy for your activities. Again, perfect for a morning meal as it gives you an energy hit for the day.

5- Fiber Rich
Your 2 tablespoon serving of peanut butter not only packs in lots of protein but also gives you 2 grams of fiber. Adequate consumption of fiber is important for the healthy functioning of your body and of course you can get more fiber from other meals but peanut butter can help supplement this.
