Peanuts Can Extend The Shelf Life of Your Heart



The whiff of the freshly harvested peanuts is heartwarming. During my college days I used to grow peanuts. The harvesting is the best part of it. You pull the plants from the clay soil, collect all the peanuts, where you feel the soggy earth in your fingers. And you finally harvest the peanuts. Beautiful memories!

Peanuts contain this amazing monounsaturated fats, which are good for your heart. They are also rich in vitamin E, Niacin, folate, protein, manganese and resveratrol. They contain oleic acid, for which olive oil is famous for. Peanuts are rich in antioxidants similar to fruits. Wow!

Peanuts a friend of your heart

A recent research study has found that all races- blacks, whites and Asians alike could potentially increase heart health by eating peanuts.

Peanuts are less expensive, more widely available and so it may be a cost effective approach to improve heart health, so say health scientists. The American Heart Association recommends eating four servings of unsalted, unoiled nuts a week. Just eat a small handful of peanuts, four times a week. Your heart will be singing a healthy melody.

Amazing Peanuts

Peanuts not only improves heart health, they protect against colon cancer, reduce risk of stroke, help prevent gallstones, protects against Alzheimer’s disease, improves cognitive skills and makes you slim. What more can you ask for?
