Unfortunately, while peanuts contributed the same benefits in these studies, peanut butter did not have the same benefits.
And eating more than 10 grams of nuts per day did not increase the benefits.
Peanuts and tree nuts have a lot going for them that could be behind their incredible health benefits.
They are rich in both mono and polyunsaturated fats which are called the “good fats” since they are essential for metabolism and brain health.
Nuts also have a lot of protein and fiber, which fill you up until your next meal.
They are also high in several of the B-vitamins and antioxidants.
These are all things that are known to be great in preventing a host of health issues.
