Here are some of the health benefits of peanut butter:
*It has monounsaturated fat which helps you lose weight and can prevent heart disease.
*Studies have shown 2 tablespoons a day lowered diabetes risk by a whopping 27%.
*It is rich in antioxidants, potassium and fibre.
*Peanuts have more protein than other nuts.
*Eating nuts makes you feel more satisfied.
Be careful of the brands which add in damaging fats and sugars. Look for brands with only one ingredient = peanuts. The magic ingredient within peanuts is genistein, which acts on the genes for obesity helping to turn them down and reduce your ability to store fat. Another way to have a quick snack with peanut butter - try putting some on a slice of apple. Enjoy!
