THE BENEFITS OF AMENDO BUTTER ARE MORE THAN ITS NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS
When we talked about favorite foods, peanut butter used to be that food that everyone likes but few dared to talk about. Because it was seen as too high in calories and too much fat to be considered healthy.
The truth is that in terms of diet, especially in the diet of athletes, peanut butter is an almost perfect food. It is tasty, nutritious, easy to consume, filled with good fats, protein, and is relatively cheap when you consider all of its benefits.
What are the benefits of peanut butter?
High in healthy fats
The fat present in peanut butter is healthy. Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats help reduce cholesterol, the risk of heart disease and are an excellent fuel for your workouts. These fats will not make you gain weight if consumed in moderation.

A tablespoon of peanut butter contains about 7 grams of protein. In addition to helping muscle growth, protein also has a satiating effect, that is, it helps you keep hunger away for longer.
Essential vitamins and minerals
Peanut butter contains magnesium, vitamin E, zinc, vitamins and essential minerals to keep you active and healthy, they help the immune system, reducing the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
