As with any dried fruit, peanuts should be part of any healthy and balanced diet if what we are looking for is to strengthen our cardiovascular health and ultimately gain in quality of life. Especially if we consider that we have started the routine again after the summer and now the autumn has started strong with a sudden drop in temperatures.

But before we get into the matter, we’ll tell you some curiosities about peanuts that are sure to surprise more than one. In the first place, it should be noted that ‘arachis hypogaea’ is a pod-like fruit belonging to the legume family.

They have their origin in South America more than seven thousand years ago in the Mexican zone Tenochtitlan. In fact, the Aztecs already consumed peanuts before the conquest of America and it was the Spaniards themselves who exported them to all of Europe so that later it was planted in all regions of the planet. The original name of this peanut was ‘tlalcacahuatl’ that comes to say something like ‘cacao de la tierra’.

What benefits do peanuts bring us?

After making this first summary about the origins of the peanut, through the following point we will delve into all the benefits that gives us the consumption of this crunchy nut for our health:

Antioxidants to prevent cancer

Numerous nutritional studies have concluded that consuming at least thirty grams of peanuts a day reduces the risk of breast cancer, a disease that attacks women of any age and condition, by almost threefold.

This is because all these antioxidants and fatty acids are most beneficial to strengthen our immune system and to directly attack cancer cells thanks to the substance known as beta-sistoterol that are present in these fruits.

Prevent cardiovascular diseases

Did you know that peanuts are made in almost 75% of monounsaturated fatty acids? It goes without saying that this component can become a great ally to treat some cardiovascular diseases like high cholesterol .

For this reason, the consumption of this peanut will make us less exposed to myocardial infarctions and will also strengthen all the muscles of our heart.

Very beneficial for diabetics

Peanuts completely roasted and without added sugars, are also a fruit to take into account for all those people who suffer from diabetes.

This is because it is a food that has a really low glycemic index so it can be consumed without problems always having the peace of mind that the glucose indexes are not going to shoot. All this while we get a kick of extra energy and ingest all kinds of nutrients as we will describe from the next point.

High in vitamins and minerals

It seems untrue that this dry fruit contains all kinds of vitamins and minerals of all kinds. Among them, it is possible to emphasize that the vitamin B1 (also denominated like thiamine) is of the most recommendable so that our bones and organs grow always strengthened.

Peanut also possesses all kinds of minerals such as magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, potassium and zinc that are most beneficial to our entire body.

Favor concentration

If you are in a job that requires a great concentration or you are in a period of intense study, we assure you that the peanuts will help you to strengthen your brain as they are able to keep the central and peripheral nervous system active .

Likewise, it has been shown that peanuts also prevent senile diseases and lift our mood after suffering any picture of stress and anxiety just like chocolate.

Nutritional properties of peanuts

As we have seen, from a nutritional point of view peanuts are considered as the nuts that more vitamin B3 (15.3 mg / 100 g.) And folic acid possess, being at the same time very rich in proteins, since 50 grams cover a quarter of the daily needs.

This means that, for example, a moderate contribution of peanuts is a good complement during pregnancy, in which certain nutritional needs exist .

However, we must not forget that it is a valuable source of monounsaturated fats (about 58%), as well as polyunsaturated fats (26%).

As we said at the beginning of this note, it must be taken into account that they are very caloric, so do not abuse their consumption, especially because they are not always digested well.

The nuts tend to be relatively good for health food, especially for the heart because they help to reduce the level of bad cholesteroland controlling both hypertension and glucose itself.

And remember something fundamental …

It is very important to always eat roasted nuts with no salt added and above all,  never fried , since in this way we can enjoy all its nutritional qualities with ease, without contributing more fats or calories than those contained in the food itself same.

What’s more,  we should especially avoid fried peanuts , since in most cases the most common is that they have been fried in refined oils or unhealthy (as with  palm oil )and we will also supply trans fats, very dangerous for our cardiovascular health.
