PEANUT FACTS: Peanuts
are high in Protein, low in saturated fat and helps lower LDL cholesterol
levels and the risk of heart disease.
A study by 2 biologists from Pennsylvania
State University and the University of Rochester reveals that diets that
include peanuts are as heart-healthy as those containing olive oil and
more heart-healthy than many low-fat diets. In fact, subjects who
consumed peanuts were found to have lower total cholesterol and
triglyceride levels than before they began the study.
A study by the USDA Agricultural Research
Service discovered that Reservatrol, a naturally occurring phytochemical,
is found in peanuts. This compound, which is also present in red
wine and grapes, has been associated with breaking down LDL cholesterol in
the blood, which can help prevent the start of heart disease.
