Benefits of Peanut and Other Nut Butters

Weight Control: It’s true nuts have lots of fat, but that doesn’t mean you should avoid them completely. The high protein and fiber keep you feeling full and energized. That could help you eat fewer calories and lose weight. If you’re on a diet, you’re more likely to stick with it if you eat nuts. Just don’t overdo it.

The Good Fat: Most of the fat in nuts is unsaturated, which is better for you than the saturated kind in meat or the trans fats in many processed foods. It may help stabilize your blood sugar and insulin, the hormone that regulates it.

Packed With Nutrients: It isn’t just the high protein, fiber, and healthy fats that are good for you. Nuts also have plenty of other nutrients like Vitamins E and B6, folic acid, niacin, magnesium, zinc, copper, and potassium. Just watch the ingredients on your brand of nut butter, peanut or otherwise. Some have added salt, sugar, preservatives, and unhealthy fats that could do more harm than good.

Magnesium: This mineral is good for your nerves, muscles, bones, blood sugar, blood pressure, and even your DNA. If you’re like many Americans, you may not get enough. Nuts like cashews, almonds, and peanuts, and the butters made from them, have lots of it.

Keep Cholesterol in Check: Having too much cholesterol can harden your arteries and lead to stroke and heart disease. Almonds, walnuts, and other tree nuts seem to lower it when it gets too high. Your body makes most of your cholesterol, but you get some of it from the food you eat. Luckily, nuts have little or none of the stuff.
