Health Benefits and Other Info

Maintaining a Healthy Diet

·         These nuts are good source of dietary protein composed of fine quality amino acids that are essential 

for growth and development.

·         Peanuts are rich in energy and contain many health benefiting nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and 

vitamins that are essential for optimum health.


Prevent Disease

·         Research studies have shown that peanuts contain high concentrations of poly-phenolic antioxidants, 

primarily in p-coumaric acid, which is believed to reduce the risk of stomach cancer by reducing the 

formation of carcinogenic nitrosamines.

·         Peanuts are excellent source of reseveratrol, another polyphenol antioxidant, which has been found to 

have protective function against cancers, heart disease, degenerative nerve disease, Alzheimer's disease, 

and viral/fungal infections. 


Lower Blood Pressure

·         Studies suggests that resveratrol reduces stroke risk by alteration of molecular mechanisms in blood 

vessels (reducing susceptibility to vascular damage through decreased activity of angiotensin, 

a systemic hormone causing blood vessel constriction that would elevate blood pressure) and by 

increasing production of the vasodilator hormone, nitric oxide.

·         Tip: Recent research studies suggest that boiling enhances antioxidant concentration in the peanuts.

It has been found that boiled peanuts have two and four fold increase in isoflavone antioxidants biochanin A

and genistein content, respectively.


Keep Skin Supple

·         The nuts are an excellent source of vitamin E (a-tocopherol); containing about 8 g per100 g. vitamin E 

is a powerful lipid soluble antioxidant which helps maintain the integrity of cell membrane of mucus 

membranes and skin by protecting from harmful oxygen free radicals.

Good Source of Minerals

·         The nuts are rich source of minerals like copper, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, 

zinc, and selenium.

·         Just a hand full of peanuts per day provides enough recommended levels of phenolic anti-oxidants, 

minerals, vitamins, and protein.
