by Kunal Joshi content writing

Most peanut butter lovers feel guilty as they try to stealthily lay their hands on a jar of the nutty buttery spread. Well, here’s good news for them- they need not have those guilt pangs any longer! Though with 190 calories and 16 grams of fat per serving, two tablespoons of peanut butter may hardly sound like a suitable diet food, but surprisingly this popular spread also promises a number of health benefits

  1. Healthy peanut butter contains monounsaturated fat and has many powerful vitamins, protein, fibre, etc. The protein component keeps you fuller for longer and is also essential for the building and repairing of muscles.

  2. It is good for your heart.

  3. The calorie content in peanut butter makes it an awesome energy booster that will give a dynamic start to your morning.

  4. There are two grams of fibre in two tablespoons of peanut butter. Fibre helps keep our digestive systems healthy.

  5. A spread of peanut butter makes for a great source of potassium, which aids your kidneys in filtering blood, keeping the central nervous system in order, and preventing the rise in blood pressure.

  6. Studies have revealed that consuming an ounce of nuts or peanut butter at least 5 days a week can lower the risk of developing diabetes by almost 30%.

  7. With about 49 grams of magnesium in it, peanut butter plays a key role in muscle recovery, mental health, and is also fantastic for bone building.

  8. Peanut butter helps in weight loss, as it keeps you feeling fuller for longer.

  9. Peanut butter nutrition quotient is quite high, as it contains protein, fibre, potassium, healthy fats as well as antioxidants, magnesium, and vitamin E.

  10. The small traces of vitamin B6 and zinc found in the spread can act as an effective immunity booster.

 

It is advisable to opt for natural peanut butter, though many varieties are available in the market. The former contains less sugar and salt, which makes it healthier. Needless to say, having it in moderation is the best way to go about it.
