Tips & Notes
A serving of peanut butter has 3mg of the powerful antioxidant vitamin E, 49mg of bone-building magnesium, 208mg of muscle-friendly potassium, and 0.17mg of immunity-boosting vitamin B6.
Research shows that eating peanuts can decrease your risk of heart disease, diabetes and other chronic health conditions. One study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that consuming 1 ounce of nuts or peanut butter (about 2 tablespoons) at least 5 days a week can lower the risk of developing diabetes by almost 30 percent.
Peanut butter is chock-full of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat. A recent study found that insulin-resistant adults who ate a diet high in monounsaturated fats had less belly fat than people who ate more carbohydrates or saturated fat.
