Many people believe the peanut is not as nutritionally valuable as true nuts like almonds, walnuts, or cashews.
But actually, they have many of the same health benefits as the more expensive nuts and should not be overlooked as a nutritious food.
Much attention has been paid to walnuts and almonds as “heart-healthy” foods, given their high content of unsaturated fats. But research suggests that
They are every bit as good for heart health as more expensive nuts.
They help prevent heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels. They can also stop small blood clots from forming and reduce your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.
Foods with a lot of protein can help you feel full with fewer calories. And among nuts, they are second only to almonds when it comes to protein count.
Studies have shown that people who include a moderate amount of them in their diet will not gain weight from them. In fact, they could help them lose weight.
Longer Life Span
Eating them might help you live longer too. A large-scale study found that people who regularly ate any kind of nuts (including them) were less likely to die of any cause than were people who rarely ate nuts.
Because the study was observational, it cannot prove that they were exactly what caused the lower death rates, but they are definitely associated with them.
