Peanut butter has been a beloved ingredient across the world for decades. The fact that you can have it for breakfast or a quick snack to go, as an accompaniment to your dessert or even your post-workout protein shake - makes it the perfect choice for when you want to indulge in something healthy, without thinking too much about it.
But do you know what it is about peanut butter that makes it so healthy?
Peanuts themselves are a very rich source of plant-based protein, and that benefit lends itself to peanut butter as well - making it a protein-rich snack. Protein is an essential ingredient for building and repairing muscle.
Peanuts are also rich in healthy fats, helping to reduce bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol levels, which in turn reduces the risk of heart disease, and improves overall body function. Healthy fats are also essential for maintaining brain health.
Outside of this, peanuts are also an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, including biotin, magnesium, vitamin E, copper and at least three variations of vitamin B, all of which provide numerous benefits for the body.
Due to the abundance of these benefits, consuming peanut butter can help you feel full and satiated - making it an ideal choice for individuals watching their weight. Peanut butter also provides a great boost of energy, which is why it is a great choice for a pre or post workout snack or even just a pick-me-up treat!
